Growing Arteries with splines ...

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am looking for a way to procedurally 'grow' arteries - preferably with a method which generates splines.

 

Can anyone recommend a method / place to start?

 

Thanks!

Some questions:

 

Do they need to branch at any point ?

Do you have r20 ?

Do you have Xparticles ?

  • Thanks CBR - in answer to your questions:

     

    Yes - ideally there would be some branching.

     

    I do have R20

     

    I don't currently have access to X-Particles (is this the best route?)

    Thanks :)

    It would be if you didn't have R20 :) (please update your profile btw)

     

    But as you have got that then you can combine multiple sweeps within a volume builder which should nicely merge all the branches together, and you could use the growth options with those sweeps to get your arteries building on. You could also do the same thing with splines via mospline.

     

    I also bought a Nitroman Plugin last year (does work with R20) that could also help with this. Check out Nitroveins. That lets you draw splines and autojunctions things, then lets you do a growth animation of all of that, and is nice and cheap - so that's probably an easier way forward...
