1. hey, thanks so much for getting back to me nikitron! ill look at your site tonight! i dont speak russian but i did find that google translate can be added to firefox as a plugin to translate the whole page you sent me! (except the text in the pictures obviously! haha)

i think you've got what what i meant the wrong way round. What im actually trying to do is make the distance from the first object dependant on the area of the face of the second object (the second object only has one face). again, ill try to do this tonight on my own using the nodes youve given me.

2. we have not area node yet.
But it in plans.
And if you have squares, you may pick vertices by list item, take distance between them, use formula to calc area. it is hard way for now ))

3. You ask, we do! Area node done!!
Also I've added cylinder node, with options for top and bottom radius, subdivisions, height and number of vertices. Enjoy!

Both soon in the main branch I hope!

You can try also the new one from @nikitron: lines connection, awesome!!

4. Oh my Goodness!!!
Area node!
About my connection - it is not ready yet, but you can do simple connection. Between objects and between wrapped vertices list, so every wrapped insertion will be operated as one object. And active flag - direction of connection. Now it makes polygons from 3 and more objects without active direction. So it makes polygon/edge between two objects. Many job to be done.

5. delete.blend.pngUse Area + sum to calculate all the area.

6. screen1.pngscreen.png
New nodes - Vector Drop - it used to make layout of all polygons in floor.
List boom - to make every polygon as separate object. So, you operate with object's parts.
This is it.

7. this is awesome!

8. can we see some node setups for the area, listboom and vector drop? pretty please ^_^

9. ok,
so before i said i was trying to make a node setup which would make the objects area affect its distance from another object on the z axis only. for now i have only made this effect location. but it seems to be working. if this isnt a very good node setup or is indeed wrong please let me know

im now going to try and work on one of two things. i either need to get every object in the scene to be affected by the same formula OR i need to try and use this new list boom node to seperate all the faces of an object and affect them all that way. I think the latter will be easier but so far i cant get it to work. wish me luck. as always, suggestions are super welcome

10. I cant get the list boom to show more than one face when i plug it in... hmm

11. i think i got what you need. You do it wrong way. now i'll try to recreate what i understood.

Here it is. Try.
It is simple in fact. You find centers of initial polygons (centers of polygons not works with many objects yet) than boom polygons, drop to zero matrix and than apply center'spolygon'smatrixs to polygons-objects. So, new objects will be in place. But adding Z axis with matrix deform node. That is what it doing.

13. ahhh!! this is so close to what i need! but i need the object to stay the same shape in plan. heres a copy of my file on pasteall. the object i want to do this with is called 'canopy cell fracture REAL'. thanks so much for your help

15. this should be the file you need. im not sure why my posts are like this. i type one thing it posts another.

16. when i plug my vertex node into the viewer it just goes dead...

17. is it joke?
again my file area-up
you deleted mesh, so select your mesh and push "get object", than update several times.
So, you will get result.

18. no its not a joke... ive made another file with all the stuff in it and renamed the file jimbob2 now instead of area-up2... really sorry about this. not sure whats happening...

19. this is what im getting when i try to enter in my object in the file i sent you
