Tree-like Pergola

This is a simple example of the many applications offered by the iterative branching system developed so far.

It’s a pergola supported by tree-like structures, created with the same system, varying the parameters of the function that calculates the deviation in x, but maintaining growth parameters in z.

The pergola itself is made of NURBS joining the endpoints of each last branch.

The resulting object might be seen as a sculpture of architectural scale. At this stage, any structural calculation hasn’t been done.
