Vectory Diary - High Quality Patterns The use of patterns in art and design projects are varied and well known. There are many sources from where you can find free raster or bitmap patterns, but there are not much when it comes to good high quality free vector patterns. So, in this post, we have listed a compilation of good quality and useful free illustrator vector patterns for download. To edit the patterns in Adobe Illustrator, you can access the Patterns in the Swatches panel.You can customize existing patterns and design patterns from scratch with any of the Illustrator tools. Everyday 3D This Christmas, at Tool we wanted to create a small interactive experience to share with our friends and clients. Since lately I did experiment with compositing WebGL objets on a video [1, 2] I thought this is a cool technique that we can use. The idea was simple enough: we would shoot a Christmas tree in a nicely decorated room and composite-in a gift box that the user can interact with while watching the video. All this is rendered with WebGL – the video runs in the background and the 3d interactive content on top, both layers are matched in perspective and movement. To achieve this effect I had to use quite a lot of different pieces of software. Here’s a breakdown of what it took to build it:

K-MODDL & Tutorials & Reuleaux Triangle - StumbleUpon If an enormously heavy object has to be moved from one spot to another, it may not be practical to move it on wheels. Instead the object is placed on a flat platform that in turn rests on cylindrical rollers (Figure 1). As the platform is pushed forward, the rollers left behind are picked up and put down in front. An object moved this way over a flat horizontal surface does not bob up and down as it rolls along. The reason is that cylindrical rollers have a circular cross section, and a circle is closed curve "with constant width."

//game dev log of martins upitis: BGE Candy It has been a busy week with real life stuff, so I am not progressing very fast. Last 2 days I have been working on environment reflection mapping coordinates. Blender currently have only view-space reflection coords reflect(viewvec,viewnormal); and of course that is not nearly enough for a proper IBL (Image Based Lighting) setup.
