Looking for advice, wisdom, resources, ideas, the usual.
Step one, I got the parabox node
Make Mesh with Values to work drawing a mesh with the mouse. Cool. Now I want to make some mesh "brushes", and any other wild thing that comes up, geometric/parametric or otherwise.
Any ideas are welcome. Are there any tools I'm missing in Vuo at present?
I'm just getting started, here are some notes for some rudimentary triangle math (middle school level is about where I'm at right now) to try and get some geometry working, hope it makes sense.
Triangle ABC A = ax,ay (previous mouse point) B = bx,by (current mouse point) C = cx,cy (the third point in the triangle, stroke width/2) Lengths of triangle sides (line segments) AC = .1 (stroke width) AB = sqrt((ax-bx)*(ax-bx)+(ay-by)*(ay-by)) BC = sqrt(AB*AB + AC*AC) Find coordinates for C (cx,cy) https://math.stackexchange.com/questions/543961/determine-third-point-of-triangle-when-two-points-and-all-sides-are-known cy = (AB*AB + AC*AC - BC*BC) / (2*AB) cx = sqrt(AC*AC - cy*cy) To orient point C, maybe calculate direction of point B relative to point A (imagining an input selector with formulas for 4 possible orientations). I guess some vector math could come in about now (direction, momentum, et al.) bx<=ax&&by>=ay??1: -cx,cy (TL) bx<=ax&&by<=ay??2: -cx,-cy (BL) bx>=ax&&by<=ay??3: cx,-cy (TR) bx>=ax&&by>=ay??4 cx,cy (BR)
