Other Sample Definition Files

Graph Shortcuts. This custom node and sample definition illustrate how to create optimized shortest paths through a graph by creating shortcuts around a certain set of vertices with a specified custom dictionary value. (DYN, DYF)

Topology Display. This custom node makes it far easier to display any topology with custom colors, transparency and with or without edges. (DYF)

Stanford Bunny. This definition illustrates how to convert a mesh into a Topologic entity. For this definition, you need the MeshToolkit package from the Package Manager and the following Stanford Bunny OBJ file. (OBJ) (DYN)

Optimising Location of Atrium. This definition illustrates how to use Dual Graph and topology to opitmize the number of connected Cells and the remnant exterior wall area of an atrium Cell that is imposed on a CellComplex. This definition is meant to be used with Autodesk's Project Refinery or other optimisation engines. (DYN)

Voroni 3D. This definition illustrates how to slice a Cuboid into a set of Voronoi Cells based on a list of points. (DYN)

Shortest Paths. This definition illustrates how to use the Graph class to find shortest paths in a CellComplex. (DYN)

Shortest Paths By Key. This definition illustrates how to use the Graph class to find shortest paths in a CellComplex by Key. (DYN)

Spread/Growth. This definition and custom node illustrate how to use the Graph class to simulate spread/growth within a CellComplex. (ZIP)

Content and Dictionary. This definition illustrates how to use the Content/Context system and Dictionary to store custom attributes in topologies. (DYN)

Topological Queries. This definition illustrates how to determine attributes based on topologic queries of custom dictionaries. (DYN)

Boolean By Dictionary. This definition illustrates how to perform a Boolean operation based on the Topology type as encoded in its custom dictionary. (DYN)
