This node provides a subset of the complete L-System mechanism to generate complex shape curves.
Usage: 1. copy LSystemNode.py to Maya's plugin path 2. copy LsCore.pyc to Maya's script path 3. copy AELSystemTemplate.mel to Maya's script path 4. within Maya, import launcher.mel run this script in script editor and call createLSystem() to build a L-System network.
For full description for the L-System gramma supported, check the README.md file in the package
Parameters: Generation: time of rewriting recursion Full Step Size: the length of a full step drawing Step Scale: scaling factor of step size Angle: default rotation of drawing direction Angle Scale: scaling factor of rotation
Probability Seed: seed value of random growing probability of single drawing step Random Angle Seed: seed value of random rotation of drawing direction Random Angle Range: range of random rotation
Initial State: premise of the growing system Rule[1-10]: user defined growing rules
------------------- update 2.2: - Core module rewritten for more precise recursion control - Smooth interpolation on growing steps and rotation supported - Remove useless parameters - Bug fixing
