A few weeks ago moderne stadt announced an architectural competition for townhouses on the WA 9 site of the Clouth district in Cologne/Germany. For the design of Schneider-Sedlaczek Architekten I created two visuals in blender. I decided to use the blender internal render engine and not cycles, because it gave me much more control over the look of certain parts of the scene.

A microscopic view

Another quick modelling task done for the weekend contest at blendernation.com. The topic aims at biomedical visualisation which I find quite challenging in tweaking the material and compositing settings to get an unrealisitic look (like a SEM micrograph). Additionally the scene should contain a hint to the gooseberry project , the 5th open movie project initiated by the Blender Foundation.

The default Cube

The weekend contest on blendernation.com suggested playing around with Blender’s default cube. I came up with this one, only using the subdivision and the wireframe modifier.

Mass-Spring-Physics

Experimenting with mass-spring-system to build larger structures and components. On the bottom left the compound rests on a bearing, on the top right a small custom force pushes downwards. The picture on the right shows the grid with the mass-spring-system. On the left one can see if the cells are are under tensile load (blue) or being compressed (red). Done in processing using the traer.physics 3.0 library.

Coding the Mandelbrot set

I never managed to code this classic, the Mandelbrot set, but now I finally tried it out in processing.
