Module 2 - Ripples on a Pond

## Screenshot of Model Geometry

## Modelling Approach

I created seven groups in Dynamo to achieve the ripples on a pond:

- Grid of points. Number slider and lists were used to vary the number of points in x and y directions and the spacing.
- Pebble. Number Slider was used for the x and y coordinates.
- Compute distances. Distance was between pebble and each of the points on the grid.
- Calculate cylinder heights. The wave function used was Cylinder Height = Base Offset + Amplitude x Exponential Decay Factor * Sin(360° x (Distance/Wavelength))
- Create cylinder masses.
- Set cylinder radius.
- Set cylinder height.
