  • For my modeling approach, I started by adding points to the grid in dynamo using cross-product lacing and flattening the list, and adding cylinders at each point. To model the pebble used a number slider for the x and y coordinates of all three pebbles and used the distance of each cylinder from the pebble as an input of a sine function. To diminish the wave I used a ratio of the max distance from the pebble divided by the distance from each pebble multiplied by the calculated height. Before offsetting them to ensure no cylinder had a negative height, I added all the respective heights from each pebble together to calculate the combined effect of all three waves.
