We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This Cellular procedural texture has been rendered into a volume data cube. It is a non-tiling 8-bit texture at 256 x 256 x 256 voxel resolution. Iso-surface meshes are also provided in PLY and STL. I have also included PNG codec AVI versions, one of which "fades" at the edges (for making surfaces that don't end abruptly). These textures are from an archive I made nearly a decade ago, by simply sweeping a plane through a procedural texture and rendering out the results. Here are the available formats:
RAW data 256x256x256 8-bit (zipped), 16MB uncompressed
BMP sequence 256x256x256 8-bit (zipped), 17MB uncompressed
PNG codec AVI 256x256x256
PNG codec AVI 256x256x256 (faded 16vx at edges)
PLY isosurface mesh 1.2M polygons
STL isosurface mesh (reduced) 588K polygons
This is from my series of volumetric objects created to help people explore the differences between polygonal and volumetric representations of objects.

So what's this mean?
We're sure aeron203 would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
