Scripted Spiral Bowl

Building on the first scripting session I had a chance to play a bit more. Using the simple equation for a spiral, I created a curve to link the points, and then a series of lines to link other points. I guess it is a spiral bowl of some sort. The black dots are text dots so I can be sure which points to link with the lines. This can be turned off or on easily within the script. Here the loop helps to create the spiral. This was much harder to do with Grasshopper given the lack of looping.

Here are a series of variations that manipulate the spiral equation to get different effects.

Here is a link to the rhino script file.
