Convenience build, recompiled for Vuo 2.4.1 and support for M1 Macs. Most of the functionality from this nodeset should now be doable natively in Vuo.

Node set for playing with points in different configurations. Added Arc generator.

  • Make 2d Point Grid - makes a point grid in 2 dimensions.
  • Make 3d Point Grid - makes a point grid in 3 dimensions.
  • Make Arc Points - makes a 2d Arc.
  • Make Cube Points - makes points along the edges of a cube.
  • Make Rectangular Cuboid Points - makes points along the edges of a rectangular cuboid.
  • Make Phyllotaxis Points - makes points in a phyllotaxis pattern
  • Make Spherograph Points - makes points on the surface of a sphere from polar coordinates.
  • Make Spirograph Points - makes points in a spirograph pattern

As usual, they work for me, might not for you. Use at your own peril, no guarantees, etc.

The spherograph should be considered somewhat experimental. I haven't really found a good way to interface with it that makes for amazing results, but it is what it is. Ideally it should have phases as the Spiro, but polar coordinates are a bit above my understanding. Maybe it will be cool one day.





Pop it in your modules folder, and you should be good to go. Examples and descriptions is in the node set itself - if it works (it might not work).

The newer version of the node set doesn't have the example compositions for some reason. Here are the example compositions from the older version:

Having those compositions won't fix the broken links to examples in Vuo, but you can open them just as normal compositions.

In case you're interested, here's how we extracted the example compositions from the older version:

  • Download the "MM.Points July 2020" version. Just leave it in your Downloads folder; don't install it in Vuo.
  • Rename the file from MM.Points_0.vuonode to
  • Double-click on the file to unzip it.
  • In the unzipped folder, find the examples in the examples folder.

The same process should work for any node set that contains examples.
