    For those of you who saw my previous animation (I was too embarrased to leave it posted) I took your advice seriously and I generated a new robot. In this scenario there are 180 robotic agents working together to generate the tower.

    I appreciate your input and it has definitely helped to improve my project.

    BTW, here is the previous version:

      That is both wickedly cool and terrifying. Love the structure that forms but the tiny robots, which look like a cross between cockroaches and those giant swimmy machines in The Matrix, I could do without. Nice work :o)

      Hi Mark,

      nice work as usual! :-) I'm just looking at weaving patterns and would be interested in hearing about your experiences in using them to generate your form. Were they driving the form in the tower you are showing or did you use other parametric influences?

      Best,

      Daniel
