Bricks Grid¶
destination after Beta: Generators
Functionality¶
This node generates brickslike grid, i.e. a grid each row of which is shifted with relation to another. It is also possible to specify toothing, so it will be like engaged bricks. All parameters of bricks can be randomized with separate control over randomization of each parameter.
Inputs & Parameters¶
All parameters except for Faces mode
can be given by the node or an external input.
All inputs are vectorized and they will accept single or multiple values.
Param  Type  Default  Description 

Faces mode  Flat or Stitch or Center 
Flat  What kind of polygons to generate:

Unit width  Float  2.0  Width of one unit (brick). 
Unit height  Float  1.0  Height of one unit (brick). 
Width  Float  10.0  Width of overall grid. 
Height  Float  10.0  Height of overall grid. 
Toothing  Float  0.0  Bricks toothing amount. Default value of zero means no toothing. 
Toothing random  Float  0.0  Toothing randomization factor. Default value of zero means
that all toothings will be equal. Maximal value of 1.0
means toothing will be random in range from zero to value
of Toothing parameter. 
Random U  Float  0.0  Randomization amplitude along bricks rows. Default value of zero means all bricks will be of same width. 
Random V  Float  0.0  Randomization amplitude across bricks rows. Default value of zero means all grid rows will be of same height. 
Shift  Float  0.5  Brick rows shift factor. Default value of 0.5 means each row of bricks will be shifted by half of brick width in relation to previous row. Minimum value of zero means no shift. 
Seed  Int  0  Random seed. 
Outputs¶
This node has the following outputs:
 Vertices
 Edges. Note that this output will contain only edges that are between bricks, not that splitting bricks into triangles.
 Polygons
 Centers. Centers of bricks.
Examples of usage¶
Default settings:
The same with Stitch faces mode:
The same with Centers faces mode:
Using toothing
parameter together with randomization, it is possible to generate something like stone wall:
A honeycomb structure:
Wooden floor:
