PhylloMachine can be used to model plants using some properties of phyllotaxis. The basic idea is that a mesh with phyllotaxis proportions has a topology described by two Fibonacci numbers, and its topology (indices of vertices of faces, parastichies spirals, cycles and topological neighbors) is described by simple number sequences without geometric calculation. Thanks to these, it can be modeled parametrically plant organs such as branches, leaves or petals, with very nature-like results.


Bezier Curve (BezierCurve)
Quickly creates a Bezier curve from a mesh face
Extrude a mesh face controlling their subdivisions
