These are very useful in making backgrounds and textures and it is up to the designer’s imaginative creativity on how to maximize this kind of resource. Grasses are very common in our everyday life.

Automake Automake is about combining generative systems with craft knowledge and digital production technologies to create a new way of designing and making objects that blurs the boundaries between maker and consumer, craft and industrial production. Automake’s product creation process in relation to traditional craft and industrial processes. Automake was developed as a research project that aimed to investigate the potentials of using generative systems to digitally design unique one-off works and produce them using a range of rapid prototyping/manufacturing technologies and CNC equipment. We have created form building software that is designed to be extremely user friendly and allow anyone to design their own craft/design works. In addition we have developed a system for outputting construction files so that you can send us your new designs to be physically produced.

Unfortunately I haven’t experimented with SymmetryWorks for a while now, but I will as soon as I find the time. I really enjoy exploring the world of patterns and watch how even the simplest of shapes can be the foundation of a great pattern. More to come, I promise. Editor Description Acrylic glass GS sheets are produced by means of liquid PMMA polymerizing between two sheets of glass. This process produces a material with outstanding characteristics: it is fracture resistant (compared to glass), weather resistant, highly transparent and lends itself to being shaped and processed. Please note High Quality Patterns Resources Oct 25 2010 When used well, patterns can be a great way to add an extra element to your designs that take them to the next level in terms of aesthetics. Creating your own repeating patterns is one way to go about this, but it’s not always something you want to spend a lot of time on, especially if you’re working with a tight budget. And why reinvent the wheel when there are thousands of patterns out there that could work? The resources below can help you find the right pattern for your project. Rather than just round up the best patterns, we’ll leave finding the perfect pattern to you, since every project has different needs.

The mockup opens in a new window since I haven’t figured out how to embed processing into wordpress yet.
