phyllotaxis

Sunflower (or Fermat’s, or Phyllotaxis) spiral can be constructed in Grasshopper3D according to the Vogel’s model of parametric relationships using polar coordinates. Definition file can be downloaded here [GHX: 0.8.0066] It’s a good example of utilizing polar coordinates. It’s also fun to play with parameters and constraints, also there are very interesting results if you also connect the polar angle value to the “z” of point component
