METABALLS.

This week I was going to make myself a set of sandwich boards and march up and down Low Road letting the good citizens of Auchtermuchty know the end of the world is nigh. I thought selling Indulgences would be a reasonable sideline. I realised the flaw almost straight away; global government beat me to it with all the enforced Green tax malarkey.

I then decided to have another poke about in Blender and found Metaballs. This link gives a rough explanation.
This is one of the things they do.
I don't know why I have never noticed them before. I'll have to think of something silly to use them for.
Have fun.

  1. Reminds me of the Terminator T-1000 shape shifting robot. They look like metal amoebas. Very effective

  2. Fascinating, Adrian, but I can't think of a practical use for the technique - or maybe you could replace the 'balls' with some politicians' heads to see what happens when they get melded together!?

    1. Richard, I am playing with a maze and blobs of mercury following it. The problem is the metaballs are much bigger than they look so adjusting boundaries is messing the job up.
      Politicians are bad enough individually, I dread to think what an amalgamation would be like.

  3. Now I wonder what you will do with them, if you can find a useful purpose for them. I like Richard's idea. Feel free to experiment with Jacinda.

    1. Jacinda is the product of Blair. There are too many of these clones pretending they know whats best for us.
