Voronoi diagrams in 3ds Max


voronoiIn mathematics, a Voronoi diagram is a special kind of decomposition of a metric space determined by distances to a specified discrete set of objects in the space, e.g., by a discrete set of points. It is named after Georgy Voronoi, also called a Voronoi tessellation, a Voronoi decomposition, or a Dirichlet tessellation (after Lejeune Dirichlet),In the simplest case, we are given a set of points S in the plane, which are the Voronoi sites. Each site s has a Voronoi cell, also called a Dirichlet cell, V(s) consisting of all points closer to s than to any other site. The segments of the Voronoi diagram are all the points in the plane that are equidistant to two sites. The Voronoi nodes are the points equidistant to three (or more) sites.

  1. Hi, I’m a student architecture from belgium currently experimenting with voronoi. My 2D voronois I can easily create in rhino from which i can get my vertexes in max but what modifiers did you use to create these 3D voronois.

    • u can make it with voronoi.rvb script.and after that only fillet the corners (i do it in 3ds MAX with MSmooth).

  2. Hello! Very Nice stuff!

    How did you make the lattices look so nicely connected. Using ordinary Max’s Lattice modifier after I’ve ran the voronoi script, I recieve really bad looking intersecting bars at the corners.
    Thank you!

  3. Check Out Tomás Saraceno Cloud City project (currently a installation on the top of the Met in NYC). It’s very similar to your images…

  4. I’m requesting permission to use one of your illustrations in my thesis project paper at CSULB. How do I reach you?
