Is there currently a more elegant way to create expressions for `Make Parametric Grid Mesh`

(et al.) besides using `Append Text`

?

In general, no, but feel free to create a feature request.

For this particular math, maybe the hot-off-the-press `Make Supershape 3D Object`

node would help? Available for testing in the 1.2.7 alpha version.

Awesome, Jaymie! Well, mine was a “wonder if I can get this to work” moment, and it does, pretty much, still working on getting the formula in order as I’m still not 100% on the proper way to approach the expected formulas for the parametric nodes. And one advantage of using `Make Parametric Grid`

, of course, is plugging in numbers where they weren’t meant to be plugged in…

Would it be too much to ask what the proper supershape formulas would be for X, Y, Z on `Make Parametric Grid`

? Relying a little too much on trial and error… Just looking to learn about the node!

The formulas are in the source code, which you can get from https://vuo.org/releases . Both `Make Parametric Grid Mesh`

and `Make Supershape`

call the same function to generate their mesh, `VuoMeshParametric_generate`

. In `node/vuo.scene/vuo.scene.make.supershape.c`

, search for `VuoMeshParametric_generate`

and you’ll see the formulas. You can compare them to `node/vuo.scene/vuo.mesh.make.parametric.c`

.

Oh yeah, thanks, Jaymie! (Hmm, I need to turn on notifications, I missed this when you wrote it).
