Now, going faster…

24 01 2009

“Qhull<->Maya PyMEL-GUI” don’t use any longer any temporary text files for in and output to Qhull. Now, it used effectively the libqhull, the C library of Qhull for all operations. Well then? This approach is very much faster !!!

By the way…

…please, you can stop all the privat enquiries by email to download or step by step instructions to “Qhull<->Maya PyMEL-GUI” ! Thank you so much for your vested  interest, but at this moment it isn’t possible. I will release a paper and the whole software tool-set I developed during this project once I graduated. Later you can find the download links here.





2D Voronoi Gyroid

20 01 2009

Voronoi cell structure based on a tensegrity gyroid shape. Irregular point set calculation again with my new pointset caculator within “Qhull<->Maya PyMEL-GUI”. Certainly pure geometry too – no texture!

2D Voronoi Moebius Split Torus

12 01 2009

I’m scripting a new pointset creation modul to create locator sets named “LocSeeder” for the “Qhull<->Maya PyMEL-GUI” which used some natural algorithm functions. The base model split torus was shaped with TopMod, then a syncrisis between irregular point set calculation and cell relaxation, isosceles voronoi cells, on the surface with the “LocSeeder”. The voronoi cells are pure geometry – no texture!  The greatest source of inspiration is always the NATURE !!!

Tower Cupola

8 01 2009

There’s one of my previous concepts for a tower building or a church-tower cupola, that I designed perhaps two years ago. It follows along a NURBS hyperbolic surface shell as a guide object. I’ve also used incidentally my same old 3D-pattern for a cool lamp design posterior (“LightGlobe” look for that in my gallery). That concept sketch was made with the involved tools Maya however and the unique Generizer modul in SmartDuplicate.

3D Voronoi Cell Grid

18 12 2008

There’re the first experiments with Qhull for applied research and studies. Tools involved Qhull, Maya/Pymel Python Module and my new toolset Qhull<->Maya PyMEL-GUI. Rendering with 3Delight for Maya.
