New SPM Grasshopper component: Vector Field Integration

with No Comments

Here’s our take at a GH component that finds the integral lines of 2d or 3d vector fields.

The way it works is very simple: you give it a list of sample points and associated vectors (1 vector for each sample point) and a start point, and it flows that start point along the vector field up to a specified iteration limit and step size. The advantage to having a generalized component like this is that along with things like principal curvature lines, it can also compute paths guided by isovists and visibility algorithms.
