Initial 3D Prototype & Voronoi Cylinder Tutorial in Grasshopper w/ Rhino 3D

Due to software updates of both Rhino & Grasshopper, the tutorial I found for a Voronoi cylinder didn’t work out perfectly, as hoped.

I got almost done to the point where it was time to wrap the Voronoi plane around a cylinder, but due to some coding mismatches, it wasn’t possibly.

Luckily, Ryan saved the day and helped figure out a way to still create the Voronoi effect but rather inwardly facing. I really liked this design, so after Ryan left, I tweaked the design a bit more before moving on to 3D print a plaster prototype. Class seemed to end too soon though, so the actual printing needed to wait until next time!
