Happy 4th of July!

About 4 to 5 hours on how to figure out how to do the pattern and about 15 minutes to actually make the pattern.

No modeling. Texture displacement with wind physics applied to a plane mesh. The fireworks are particle systems with reduced gravity affects.

Added an example of what it looks like in my cnc software for reference.

Ya know it is the 18th... mid JUNE.



Hey how bout a version where the text has an outline? Let the outline spill into the bevel.
Either prismatic or incised letters. Easier to read i'd say. Neat looking O. :wink:

you make it sound like getting the party started early is a bad thing...

I should have stated the pattern is only the graphic. The second image was to show what it looks like in my cnc software.

Ronnie, I normally post these patterns the day of or the day after which kind of doesn't let people carve them for the actual holiday. I am trying to think ahead a week or two but I have a feeling it'll go back to the day of.

Stick, barbecue and beer already started. I should be fairly stuffed and happy by the time the 4th rolls around. :D

ain't not. :p but, you have rust on one side of your avatar. not that there's anything wrong with it.

Im sorry O, just lookin at it a lil differently for the design. I didnt recal posting patterns?

When did you start Stick? Good golly Labor Day isnt too far away



Whoa... "Texture displacement with wind physics applied to a plane mesh. The fireworks are particle systems with reduced gravity affects." :nerd:
Cool Deal!

The pattern is the graphic. Its a depth map gray scale image map.

The software today is crazy awesome. I imported a picture, took the texture and applied it as a displacement map and then applied a physics wind simulation to the 3d mesh. The gif is a movie of the wind action on the plane mesh. I can take any frame of the sequence and make a cnc pattern from it. All under 10-15 minutes. Just had to figure out the process on how that works (4 hours because not that sharp any more).

For any blender users: The part that was throwing me is you have to apply the displacement map texture coordinates as a UV instead of object or local.

You could make a lot of models from that gif, neat technology.
