Grasshopper Exploration 1 – Spikes

I am interested in how simple geometric shapes like triangle could join together and form spikes.

I started this exploration of forms by folding an origami of  an interesting pattern I saw. From the paper model, I could play with the movements of the different spikes.

I transferred the pattern into Grasshopper. Below is how the whole definition and pattern looks like.

With this definition, I can edit the pattern by (1) adjust the height of the spikes, (2) adjust the size of the triangles and (3) increase or decrease the amount of tessellation.

Below are the steps involved:
