Tao (Red Giant) pluggin ... something similar in Blender?

Hallo !

This is a very simple, cheap and straight forward way of creating complex geometries along a path.

Is there a way to do something similar in Blender? Or to interact with both apps??

This took about ten minutes in geometry nodes Blender 3.0, this is not the only way to achieve it either, probably do it all with some arraying tapering and a mirror mod, but I like geo nodes.

So yeah, I’d say pretty trivial for Blender!

Happy Blending.

Thanks for the hints!

But… is there an add-on or a way to do it straight forward?

There are so many areas that I am learning and dealing with (learning 3D since one year), that building my own procedural geometry generator seems a bit daring at this moment …

Just with modifiers then?

have a Blender 3.0 file…

Do you have a blend for this to share or a higher res node tree image?

Sure… Blender 3.0 daily build from this week,

Ive fiddled more with it.

Thank you!

Great … but after downloading the file (thanks a lot for the work), I just was not able to make any changes or to understand how to tweak it or do something similar… and I took my time!

After one hour with Tao AE plugging, I just created such a mesmerizing and beautiful geometries that I almost faint.

…I am starting to learn Houdini, so on the other hand Blender seems so easy and straight forward compared to it.
