Make Parametric Object (vuo.scene.make.parametric)

Creates a scene object in a shape defined by parametric math expressions.

This node creates a mesh whose vertex positions and texture mapping are defined by a set of math expressions. The expressions can use the variables U and V. This node calculates each expression for evenly spaced values of U and V. Each calculation becomes a vertex in the resulting mesh.

The math expressions can use:

For a complete list of the operators and functions available, see the Calculate node’s description.
