category: utility

Creates phyllotaxis pattern with instances of selected object.

pick object: pick object for instancing

pick spline: pick spline for radius reference. This lets you create cylindrical phyllotaxis with variable radius (see images below). Notice that script workst in spline's local coordinate system. Y axis is central axis of final geometry. Distance along local X axis is used as radius.

animation: newly created objects willbe animated according to spline animation. See sample movie below.

max. elements: number of elements in pattern

constant size: controls scale of instances (see images below)

create: creates pattern

constant size checked

constant size unchecked

spline used as radius reference

resulting geometry
Sample animation. First vertex of spline is at bottom end.
