Diagrid Box Tesselation [Grasshopper]

Many of us have probably used the popular method of proliferating a component over surface using the box surface and box morphing components which actually is very useful , however it has the limitation that you can only arrange your components in a quadrangular grid and there maybe sometimes we need a different arrange or sequence for populating our surfaces, last weekend I was talking about this with Marysol Kraviez a student of the DIA Master at Dessau of and she send me a discussion from the Grasshopper page of people addressing this problem, I found very good and interesting approaches and I decided to make a  small contribution by making a definition based on one that I saw over there for creating box surfaces in a diagrid arrange using a VB script I have used for other works , hope you find it useful.

    And then I want to know how the 3rd picture convert to the 1st and 2nd pictures.That is to say each components merged very well.

    with latest grasshopper (build 08.0007). you would need to replace the previous bbox with new bbx (with world and orientation plane coordinate options).
