Graphics

Autodesk

  • 123D is a great set of seemingly free tools for Hobbyists

Blender

3D Printing

WebGL

Way cool WebGL demo…makes me want to take Computer Graphics to build my own ray tracer just for fun :-)

Signal Processing Images

  • Univ. of New Mexico Cool intro page that you saw before. Talks about how different images look in the frequency domain. Talks about filtering them as well and their effects.
  • 2D FFT of Goofy :P

Structure Synth

  • Much better than Sketchup for rendering large (>1000) shapes dynamically. For Sketchup, 6-level Sierpinski took 5 minutes, never finished 7-level.
  • Looking into how to export it into a good rendering program. Looks like main two are Sunflow and Blender. However, if other programs recognize .OBJ files, they're good to go as well.
  • Already installed Sunflow, not sure on Blender.

Tut Examples

Cubic Crazy Balls Sierpinski Cubic 2

Sunflow Usage

  • Command Line Usage: (Adjust 4096(MB) to your memory size)
java -server -Xmx4096M -jar sunflow.jar
  • Problem is, changing the camera position is a pain. You have to set it up just right in SS and then export. Luckily, SS has a primitive RayTracer built in.

Google Sketchup Notes

Drafting in Sketchup

  • Possible source for making a rounded cube here
