CinderISO Studies

Hai Nguyen has ported over his Maya Moonshine plugin to Cinder. It is now called CinderISO. It is a multi-threaded particle mesher and it's a beauty.

In the following images, I have created a dynamic metaball from a group of flocking particles. All of the rendering was done from within Cinder using GLSL shaders. Eventually, I saved out the form as a .obj file and then converted it to a .stl using Blender. I uploaded the 3D files to Shapeways and made some nice 3D prints from these metaball shapes.

The CinderISO Cinderblock creates water-tight meshes. Simply export the .obj, convert it to a .stl, and upload it to Shapeways to get some great 3D prints.
