Dreidle Urbanism

Tracking the tip of a dreidle with processing, and then sending the coordinate data via udp to grasshopper.

Dreidle City in time lapse. Inspired by parmetric urbanism.

Download the definition files here. Udp sending and receiving based on Luis Fraguada's definition.

Tracking with Processing and Grasshopper

I threw a marble in an iron wok and tracked the motion, using brightness tracking in processing. Then I sended the coordinates of the marble via udp as a list to grasshopper.

The path remindes me of harmonograph curves.

Download the files here. The grasshopper definition is based on Luis Fraguada's work, I used his grasshopper udp receiver and adapted it.

Mesh Deformer

Inspiered by the IXth chapter of D'Arcy Thompson's On growth and form I build a definition for the deformation of mesh models. The reference surface should be in the XZ plane.

The fish model is from planit3d
