Flower Shop - Nodevember 2021

Timelapse:

I bundled a handful of prompts together for this one so I am covering 6-sided (with the floor), round (with the spiral staircase), Red (with the flower), and Green (with the foliage).
Partly this was just a fun experiment to see how far I could push Geo Nodes in its current state but also an excuse for me to test out a bunch of different methods at making systems that generate lots of things in parallel.

I know there’s some proposal for loop nodes but right now, all we can do is use the instancing system and some maths to process lots of data in parallel. I was getting pretty close to something but it definitely needs more work.

I was leaning on my toolkit add-on a lot (a bunch of premade group nodes) and otherwise it’s just 100% good ol’ fashioned noodling.

For anyone interested the Flower Shop node tree has 4127 nodes including group contents and it performs terribly :smiley:

If this is the future of modelling and rendering in Blender i will never master this :slight_smile:
