I wanted to give an update as to the apps I’m working on right now, what’s in-review, and ask what people would like to see.
Here are the apps being reviewed by Inventables right now:
Allows you to scale shapes about a specified point
Allows you to rotate selected shapes about a specified point.
Allows you to move selected shapes from one point to another easily and accurately.
See how to use the app here: YouTube Details about the inputs can be found here: Google Slides
The top most volume in the selection set will be used to intersect with the remaining selected volumes.
App based on https://xoihazard.com/tools/halftone/
And here are the apps I’m still experimenting with:
Image to Height Map
Import an image and use the settings to generate a height map of your image. Max Height / Width - Resizes output to fit within these bounds. Resolution - Granularity of the resultant shape. Smaller values = more detail. Layers = 1 to 255 layers possible. Each layer is comprised of all the pixels that fall within that color range. (High number of layers will likely crash your EASEL session. Use with caution.)
(All images are resized down to 1024 pixels max within the app.)
Smooths the sharp corners of a shape to give a smooth continous curve.
Convert to World Space
Absorbs all transformations to a shape (rotation, scaling, flipping, etc.) and converts the shape to world space removing the transformations but leaving the shape where it is.
TSP Art Generator
Create traveling salesman problem paths from pictures. this generates a single line that represents your image.
Stippling Art Generator
Similar to halftoning, stippling uses consistent depth holes that are more densely packed in in darker areas.
Gives the user the ability to close open paths to generate closed shapes. Also can combine multiple lines into a single open line or a single closed shape. Allows for smoothing the resultant curve.
Create v-carve inlays. Generates a positive and negative shape for generating the inlay.
If you all have anything else you would like to see that an app could accomplish, let me know! I have fun making these apps.
