I tried playing around with all your definitions (very cool, many thanks), but still haven’t quite got what I’m looking for.
I’m after the following (illustrations at the bottom of the post).
A point grid of: 0…50…#100
x = 0, y = 0, z = sine curve translation
Sine curve = Factor*Math.Sin(X);
Each ‘point line’ would thus have a different factor associated with it up to half of the max lines (25 in this case).
Point Line 1 = Factor 1
Point Line 2 = Factor 2
And so on and so forth.
After getting my X-Axis sine curve working, I would mirror the point distribution to get something akin to the first post image in the X-Axis.
I would then rotate the point ‘cloud’ 90°, remove any co-incident points and create a new ‘cloud’ based off that - hopefully similar to the above image.
It should look something like below:
Very simple defintion.
First line. Second Line. Third Line … 10th Line.
Verbose version of what I’m after (part).
