I've been trying to make a procedural system that generates closed leaf venation patterns, based on this paper: http://algorithmicbotany.org/papers/venation.sig2005.pdf
An example of what I'm trying to achieve.
I thought I would try to extend Entagma's space colonization algorithm, since all leaf venation really is is an extension of space colonization. And I've been banging my head against this wall for months, to the point of desperation. I need help. Attached is the HIP file, if anyone wants to look at it. Has anyone of you successfully implemented this before, and if so...please help! What am I doing wrong, any ideas, any tips, etc.
Thank you so much!
