The next step to modify the script is achieving a 3D shape for the canopy from the Voronoi pattern. The strategy will be to add normal vectors from the vertices of each cell within a range of height and draw curves using the points at the end of these normal lines as control points. Then applying a mesh patch command and offseting the mesh as a solid we will get the canopy in 3D with certain thickness. Drawing lines in plan using the control points of the cells, scaling them, creating a surface from a planar curve and extruding it as a solid we will get several holes in the canopy to generate different porosity conditions.
