### 7- Image Attractor

In this grasshopper tutorial, I will model a facade louver system based on scaling. First I will divide the facade into louvers and then I will extract the lines and scale them based on the height of the surface. then we will remodel the louvers with another technique and use point attractor and image attractor to affect the facade.

### Sorting Data

In this Grasshopper tutorial, I will teach you how to use sorting data to produce a spiral based surface and then convert it to smooth Mesh. First I will produce a surface by revolving a profile curve and then we will divide the surface with isotrim. By connecting the corners we can produce the spirals.
