We certainly had fun making this set of mini videos which are being put out on Anarkik3DDesign’s Instagram. These are to intrigue and here is what each one is about.
‘Fat & Thin’: This video shows easy it is in Anarkik3DDesign to change the proportions of the donut/torus dynamically on the fly just by holding down a key on the keyboard while pushing in the Falcon device handle for ‘thinner’ and pulling out for ‘fatter’. Click here for ‘Fat & Thin’
‘Sliced’: The donut is arbitrarily sliced up and each section coloured differently! So easy to do, so much fun. Here is the link to ‘Sliced’
‘Sliced & Twisted’: By not grouping the parts of the coloured sliced donut and then ‘rotating’ it all, its kind of riotously disorderly! Serendipity? Here is the link to ‘Sliced & Twisted’
‘Sliced to Bits’: By again not grouping the parts of the colourful sliced donut and then ‘scaling’ it all, both uniformly and non-uniformly it breaks up and dances! Here is the link to ‘Sliced to Bits‘
‘Take-away’: This video demonstrates a pretty sophisticated yet easy way to create unusual and colourful forms by subtracting one coloured object from another one in a different colour. This is a Boolean Geometry Operation. See this to understand it! Here is the link to ‘Take-away’
‘Take too’: This is straight forward – putting two objects together and making them into one. This is a Boolean Geometry Operation too. Here is the link to ‘Take too’
‘Take-away too’: Another take on subtracting using hot keys to make positioning dead easy. This can create complexity especially using already quite complex objects. After subtraction the form from the intersection is often interesting and beautiful – so it is not automatically deleted. Here is the link to ‘Take-away too’
‘Copy Cat’: Hot keys for precision pasting and positioning. How easy this is! Here is the link to Copy Cat
‘Mirror Mirror’: A very serendipitous way to create amazing models! Here is the link to ‘Mirror Mirror’
‘Digital Clay’: Yes, you can touch and feel your model. Its properties are easily changed from solid to squishy, affecting how it deforms. Here is the link to ‘Digital Clay’.
For these mini videos we used the torus/donut form as it is very interesting for being geometrically different to a sphere, cube, cone, cylinder, etc. as it comes with a hole in the middle. As our standard torus/donut has equal diameters for the solid and for the hole we developed a super easy way to change this. Watch ‘Fat & Thin Donuts’.
