In first part penalization and decomposing a surface while all elements remains responsive.Panels which are on XY plane are created from the same original object.Position of control points are actually result of the same transformation derive from the surface with respect to local coordinate system of the objects laying on the surface. In part two […]

Introducing Parametric Mesh node

Posted in: In Action!- Mar 31, 2013 No Comments

Para 3d v3.0 offers new function which allow users to create parametric meshes by giving a set of vertices. In the beginning of the video I managed to create a SIN curve using math controller and in the second part a parametric mesh creates an envelope connecting the frames.

Parametric trusses using pattern controller

Posted in: In Action!- Mar 30, 2013 No Comments

Pattern controller in Para 3d v3.0 allows users to interweave result of other controllers by user defined pattern, in this video you see how to use the pattern controller to switch between two splines of a curve. The curves themselves belong to another array and a parametric array link controller is extracting them from the […]
