## Panelization Examples

### Panelization Example6

The following is an example of drawing curves with multiple points on an input surface and extruding those curves. The sample input file used in the example is below.

```add_library('igeo')

size(480, 360, IG.GL)

IG.open("surface8.3dm")
surfaces = IG.surfaces()

unum = 10
vnum = 30
uinc = 1.0/unum
vinc = 1.0/vnum

for surf in surfaces :
for i in range(unum) :
pts = []

for j in range(vnum+1) :
if j%2==0 :
pts.append(surf.pt(i*uinc, j*vinc))
else :
pts.append(surf.pt((i+1)*uinc, j*vinc))
ICurve(pts).clr(0)
surf.del()
```

Then amount of undulation is controlled by image mapping. The degree of the curve is also changed to create curvature. The input bitmap used in the example is this.

```add_library('igeo')

size(480, 360, IG.GL)

IG.open("surface8.3dm")
surfaces = IG.surfaces()

unum = 20
vnum = 60
uinc = 1.0/unum
vinc = 1.0/vnum

map = IImageMap("map3.jpg")

for surf in surfaces :
for i in range(unum) :
pts = []

for j in range(vnum+1) :
if j%2==0 :
pts.append(surf.pt(i*uinc, j*vinc))
else :
# bitmap value is sampled. note that u and v is swapped to match with u-v of the input surface.
val = map.get( j*vinc, i*uinc )

pts.append(surf.pt((i+val)*uinc, j*vinc))
ICurve(pts, 2).clr(0)
surf.del()
```

Then the curves are extruded in the y-axis direction.

```add_library('igeo')

size(480, 360, IG.GL)

IG.open("surface8.3dm")
surfaces = IG.surfaces()

unum = 20
vnum = 60
uinc = 1.0/unum
vinc = 1.0/vnum

map = IImageMap("map3.jpg")

for surf in surfaces :
for i in range(unum) :
pts = []

for j in range(vnum+1) :
if j%2==0 :
pts.append( surf.pt(i*uinc, j*vinc) )
else :
# bitmap value is sampled. note that u and v is swapped to match with u-v of the input surface.
val = map.get( j*vinc, i*uinc )

pts.append( surf.pt((i+val)*uinc, j*vinc) )
crv = ICurve(pts, 2).clr(0)
extrudeDir = IVec(0, -2, 0)
IG.extrude(crv, extrudeDir).clr(0,0,i*uinc,0.5)
surf.del()
```

Then the depth of extrusion is randomized and pipe geometry is added on the edge of the extruded surface.

```add_library('igeo')

size(480, 360, IG.GL)

IG.open("surface8.3dm")
surfaces = IG.surfaces()

unum = 20
vnum = 60
uinc = 1.0/unum
vinc = 1.0/vnum

map = IImageMap("map3.jpg")

for surf in surfaces :
for i in range(unum) :
pts = []

for j in range(vnum+1) :
if j%2==0 :
pts.append(surf.pt(i*uinc, j*vinc))
else :
# bitmap value is sampled. note that u and v is swapped to match with u-v of the input surface.
val = map.get( j*vinc, i*uinc )
pts.append(surf.pt((i+val)*uinc, j*vinc))
crv = ICurve(pts, 2).clr(0)
extrudeDir = IVec(0, IRand.get(-3, -1), 0)
IG.extrude(crv, extrudeDir).clr(0,0,i*uinc,0.5)

crv2 = crv.cp(extrudeDir)
IG.pipe(crv2, 0.1).clr(0.2)
surf.del()
```
