The Binary Kite – even more cubes with Py4D

The Binary Kite - even more cubes with Py4D

There are those popular structures we all know and love because they simply look fascinating from every angle – like the Sierpinski triangle, the Pythagoras tree or the Menger sponge.
Generative geometry is one more proof that math is beautiful no matter how basic.

Recently I stumbled upon a new pattern that is also phenomenally simple but produces rather complex shapes – the “Binary Kite”.

Strange Attractor Finder and C4D/PY4D Particle Bench

Strange Attractor Finder and C4D/PY4D Particle Bench

Strange attractors are fractals that emerge at certain, sensitive parameters within the three-or more dimensional phase space.

They are are researched since the early 70s and strongly related to the chaos theory as they allow to watch the transition from chaos to order/geometry.

Good things first: see the result and try the chaotic attractor finder!

Smart Outline – a C4D plugin

Smart Outline - a C4D plugin

Cinema 4D offers the function “create outline” to offset a spline as contour.

Sadly it is only accessible while editing a spline in pointmode- so it´s destructive.

Smart Outline offers the same functionality but is animateable, can exclude the sourcespline and works with all types of splineobjects.

Its available for R10 and higher – PC/MAC (supports 64bit) – …and it´s free!

Update: The new version 1.2 now also has an animateable chamfer- option
