About this blog

This blog is a diary and about a cooperation between Flemming Tvede Hansen(Ph.D-Scholar, DKDS) and Marcin Ignac (CIID/DKDS).

The cooperation is based on an idea by Flemming about a dynamic designtool and Marcin's skills for programming in "Processing".

This cooperation was initiated 10 October 2008.

26 November Question: A test for a 3d version?

DesignToolPosted by flemming Thu, December 04, 2008 22:54:09

Have you had time to make some further experiments with the wii and the possibility to change the 2d into 3d?

I think I have solved the problem about the hidden geometry, but it could be very useful to test it with a 3d obj. object from your programming. If "the wii issue" hasn't been solved yet, I wonder if it is possible to make some test just with the mouse as device but with 3d geometry, - or is it a long way round and in a wrong order?

But it could be very useful since I could start working on that issue already now.


Regarding upcoming parameters and modes I was wondering of the possibility of choosing in between and a combination of:

1. Making a track as we do in the present version and 2. The emitting modes:

A: the cubes emerge from origin but in a spiral pattern in the x-y plan.

B: like A, but with two spirals in opposite directions.

C: several of cubes emerge and grow from the origin in all direction (linear) at the same time in the x-y plan.

Regarding these modes, maybe some more complex pattern must be found instead, some which are based on 3d growing algorithms. Do you know anything about fractals? Does "processing" have any of these embedded for use?
