Gosper-Peano Curve in Grasshopper

Anemone components are still working great, extending the abilities of Grasshopper. Here, I studied a space-filling fractal called Gosper-Peano curve. You can download the Grasshopper definition here. Be very careful about the number of iterations (the N input) because it can crash your Rhino if you change it to bigger numbers. Also you should have Anemone components installed in order to run this definition. The generator curve is a special one. Direction, length and angle of every segment make it possible to create this beautiful fractal. I love to use this one in both the introduction to computer drawing classes (as a manual drawing and planar transformation exercise) and parametric modeling classes (as a nice introduction to recursion and fractals in Grasshopper).
