Bumpy's Seamless Heart Tutorial

During the Christmas break, bumpy has written this well detailed tutorial to show how to make a seamless heart:

http://www.bumpy3d.com/tut/heart/index.html

This tutorial should be of value to you anyone who wants to understand seamless better, even if you are too tough to have any interest in making valentines :) In this tutorial bumpy shows how to take advantage of seamless's versatility, using the Stem node to make only half the heart first and the SineTug node to modify the initial shape made by a BezierLathe node.
It is written from a bumpy's perspective, so this should help to get a more well rounded understanding of seamelss concepts.
I have followed through his step by step instructions to verify it works and makes sense ;)

I have added bumpy's tut to my tutorial index:

Many thanks to Bumpy :)

Thanks Lilly and Alain for your kind words :D

And thanks thyme for adding it to your list 8)

This is my first seamless3d tutorial so I do hope it makes sense. It was interesting trying to put into my own words how seamless works. I think it's improved my understanding at least

Thanks for showing what you have done Alain :)
From this wrl I am wondering if you have missed where it says to uncheck the joinEnds field instructed at:

5. Setup the triangle grid

iii. Make it so the left and right sides of the triangle grid are not joined:
Uncheck joinEnds

From Matthieu's translation of the tutorial:

5. Ajustez le maillage de triangles

iii. Faites en sorte que les extrémités gauche et droite du maillage soient disjointes :
Décochez joinEnds (joindre les bouts)


Sorry if this was intentional Alain :)

You are welcome Lilly :)
All I did was use a Stem node with a texture mapper and without a SurfaceGenerator to make this flat canvas for your beautiful texture. Showing how to do this might make for a good demo/tutorial because it would be useful and would serve as a simple way to acquaint anyone with the Stem node. But then if I add texture mapping to the new RectangleBuild node (when I add texture mapping to the new specilised build nodes), one could use the RectangleBuild node instead which would be a little simpler but would not then aquaint anyone new to the Stem node which would be kind of sad because the stem node can lead to so many more exciting paths not possible from a speciliased node.

I have just finished putting some images of 3d models made by me on my new web site http://www.bumpy3d.com/gal :D
The models are all made in Seamless3d, of course, and output to POV-Ray using seamless' wondeful output to POV-Ray feature :D

Hi thyme,

Wow bumpy some Great new povrays I never seen before :D

Thanks, I'm very happy you like them :D

I have been playing with the CCLath node the last couple of weekends. I think it really is great for making "cute" and "beautiful" types of curves. I've just finished making these seven pots using it 8) .

bye :),
