May The Fourth Be With You - Dynamo Point Attractors With Images

In this example we are using the 4th of May to look at how point attractors images can be used within Dynamo for Revit. Beyond a fun experiment, this has a very real application in the example of perforated panels in architecture or decorative walls.

First we need to generate the points the image will map to

Next, we will create the point to attract to as well as remap range. This will be helpful to control the maximium diameter of our circles.

Creates Circle Geometry

Select image from file path and coordine pixels/ratio

Map your colors and flatten them.

Apply color to circles

And boom, you have a point attractor script with an image.

Here is a screen shot of the script in it's entirety.
