335

December 1. – 335

MathMod & Morenaments – I started the year with SURFER from Imaginary.org. I might as well close the year with the Imaginary.org programming community.

MathMod is a mathematical modeling software. It visualizes and animates implicit and parametric surfaces. It  was created by Abderrahman Taha and is available at SourceForge

Morenaments was created by Martin Von Gagen and is available on the Imaginary.org site. The program creates symmetrical patterns in one of the 17 symmetry groups of the Euclidean space.

The combination of the mathematical objects from MathMod and background patterns Ill create in Morenaments should make for an interesting visual dialog.

Today’s object is a cube-sphere – how to turn a cube into a sphere – which is done by connecting the mesh/vertices from one to the other. I slightly tweaked the script to make them overlap instead of just blending – still an all in one cube in a sphere. I used the Morenaments background to create the drop pattern around and in the spherecube.
