I am trying to make a sunflower. The seeds in a flower grow in a spiral. Whenever I add an array spiral and make it follow the curve, it doesn't seem to look quite right. This is because it doesn't follow a Fibonacci sequence. How can I fix this to look more like the real thing? How can I make my array follow a Fibonacci spiral without running into spacing issues?
My current pattern with the array modifier following the spiral curve:
The pattern I am trying to create:
Pasting the following code will create vertices in the distinct pattern, however it will not place any specific objects instead of those vertices. How would I go about modifying the script so it will place down an object instead of a vertex?
import bpy import bmesh import math n = 1000 # number of points c = 0.1 # scale factor mesh = bpy.data.meshes.new(name="Spiral") bm = bmesh.new() for i in range(0, n): theta = i * math.radians(137.5) r = c * math.sqrt(i) bm.verts.new((math.cos(theta) * r, math.sin(theta) * r, 0.0)) bm.to_mesh(mesh) mesh.update() from bpy_extras import object_utils object_utils.object_data_add(bpy.context, mesh)
