Dual mesh to Voronoi mesh

Recommended Posts

Is there a way I can change a dual mesh into a Voronoi mesh? Here's a link to a dual mesh video. Houdini Quicktip 004 Quick Dual mesh - YouTube

what do you call Voronoi mesh? It's sort of the same principle, so it really comes down to what you are expecting

but if you just want to go from dual back to the original topology, you can do another dual mesh operation (you may need to uncheck Convex Polygons)

surely you can work it out from here:

I don't want it to be a fracture, I want it to be a single mesh just like what's in the video I posted. I want a Voronoi pattern to generate scales like the smaller ones in this photo.

If those could be applied to a lizard mesh, that would be great!

You could look into displacing a high-resolution mesh with voronoise in a point VOP.
For the time being, here is a way to populate a surface with real scales.

I don't have a lizard model but I do have a dragon model.

I need a workflow to create real scales like the ones in this video. They are done with a proprietary tool called RepTile.

You can try to combinate some nodes like polyextrude, fuse, polyreduce and subdivide on a voronoi pattern. Here is a simple example ...

Not what I had in mind.

:lol: Confuse-a-Cat ...

Check those fingers boom bomm
 

int numPt = npoints(1);
vector pos[];
vector otherP;

for( int  i = 0; i <numPt; i ++ ) {
        otherP = point(1,"P",i);
        append(pos,otherP);
        }

float ds = ch("ds");
foreach(vector iPos;pos){
    float dist = distance(iPos,@P);
    ds = min(dist,ds);
    }
    
@Cd = ds;

If you could work out an equivalent for this paper in Houdini, that would be great! I've been trying to for a while now.

One of the things I have loved about odforce for years is how very generous so many talented artists are on here, but this thread really underscores the downside of that when people abuse that spirit.

I'm amazed that multiple artists who have generously and repeatedly provided advice and source files for various methods are simply being given repeated requests for additional free work as thanks for their time. 

Presumably you are being paid for your work generated with such specific requirements, yet at no point in this entire thread have you indicated any thanks or gratitude to those who have posted solutions to help you, simply demanded more work from theim for free in a rude manner.

Perhaps consider making an effort with some of the various methods already offered, and post a .hip file showing you've put any work whatsoever into resolving your request rather than continuing to demand that others simply hand you fully-formed solutions for you to profit off of.

I'm just asking for help to develop ideas that I can share with others.

I already got my answer which is that I can't change a dual mesh to the Voronoi mesh I had in mind, so thank you.

@ryew Typically  how World and everything around us work ...if not to for Crying Than just have Fun and Listen to Satriani and Love your nearest -nothing more really -F.ck the Capitalism.

@Bennell Eishhhh Now you have tuto completo Just warm up the Chair and share ...
With this tricks and if you search UV tricks  you can make nice Scales .
