Branch Formations – Intro

In a series of studies we create a digitized catalogue of naturally grown branch nodes that are used as components

parameter for constructs with continuous grain.
The resulting formations are tested with regard to ideal structural performance and potential function and then adjusted
accordingly in a feedback system.  Continue reading
