Kami – Recursive function practice

02 stacked spheres


import math
import rhinoscriptsyntax as rs

def stacktheSpheres():
pi = math.pi
dblTwistAngle = 0.0
#the z coordinate for all sphere centers
#rs.frange is the float version of range function
#rs.frange(start, stop, step)
for z in rs.frange(0.0, 5.0, 0.5):
dblTwistAngle = dblTwistAngle + (pi/30)
#this is for the twisting as it loops upwards

for a in rs.frange(0.0, 2*pi, (pi/15)):
x = 5 * math.sin(a + dblTwistAngle)
y = 5 * math.cos(a + dblTwistAngle)
rs.AddSphere([x,y,z], 0.5) #the center and radius
#this is for the first ring of spheres
