Anamorphosis in GH


This definition distorts a BRep about a point in such a way that it appears the same from a particular view point. This phenomenon, by which an image appears undistorted when viewed from a particular angle, is seen most famously in Hans Holbein’s “The Ambassadors.”

As a side note, there is another form of anamorphosis, restoring a proper image with curved or distorted mirrors. If you’re looking for a way to do this I suggest you look at Daniel Piker’s work on inversion.

    Hi, I am an interior designer. I’m designing a retail store at the moment and I was thinking of doing the same to the exterior of the building. So it appears different to different sides. Is this possible? Please do let me know. Thank you.
