Abstract arrangement

Here I am using 3 different cutting methods one after the other in 3 separate foreach loops and introducing geometry at various stages in the chain of nodes.

    Is there any chance to learn the process?

      I put a quick file together for you to show the cutting process. After that it's just a case of setting up a random extrude to get the different heights of the blocks. On a polyextrude I used the output groups and applied a transparent material to some random faces within the extrudefront group.

      Also, in that that file I posted, in the for loop on the right, if you copy the transform node directly under the bound node and place it underneath the boolean node you will get the rotations of the blocks in the circle similar to the image posted above. Add circle_group to the group selection in the pasted transform node otherwise it will affect all of the shapes. You can do a similar thing with the for loop on the left, just need to create the metadata node and reference the detail in a transform node. Let us know if you need any extra help.
