Weaver (2001)

Explorations of industrial braiding and weaving led to the design of a grammar capable of describing and generating woven strands. Weaver applies the pattern to a user-defined surface. The resulting weaves can be complex and depend both on the description of the weave pattern and the topology of the surface on which the weave is applied. Weaver is written in MEL and runs in Alias|Wavefront Maya.
