GC: Populating Surfaces

Our initial idea was to try and model the carbon nanotube in GC and then populate it over a surface, but a hexagon has six points, GC only recognizes four of these. This is causing problems bringing that [carbon] object over a cylindrical surface. This will now have to be modelled in 3ds max instead […]

Idea:: Dynamic Structure in GC

The user recieves a cube, this represents a 2x2x2(in.) cube (grid points) in GC. Using a script that will allow this small cube to grow (which is based off of user defined variables or L-Systems), it will grow into say a 10x10x10(ft.) cube (grid points). All points are then linked to a point (pointX) off […]

Life Size

Have been reading a book (LifeSize) about rapid research / prototyping. They provide instructions for creating a programmable screen that detects motion. They are using flexinol wire and a microprocessor attached to the computer via USB. The level of movement possible is limited but the possibility of constructing a working model is kind of exiting. […]
