Networks of Evolutionary Processors constitute an interesting computing model motivated by cell biology. Pictural networks of evolutionary processors have been introduced to handle generation of pictures of rectangular arrays of symbols. Here we introduce an extension of this model to generate pictures that are arrays, not necessarily rectangular, and compare these with array generating Puzzle grammars. We also provide an extension to generate 3D rectangular arrays.
