I can create patterns like this, but I have not yet figured out how to convert them into Things!


I have created software to generate these types of patterns in unlimited number and variety.

In those picture I interpret the connected paths as X- and Y- coordinates. It looks like a chain mail to me. You should add a vertical height (Z coordinate) to make it a thing.

I suggest to have two different height levels (0-nothing there, 1- first floor, 2- second floor). Because it is easy to make flat surfaces, you can imagine some floors on the picture. When the paths are intersecting you should separate them on different Z-heights (different floors), by using a step up or down.

If you have a list of all paths and their coordinates, you might be able to build the structure in OpenSCAD. Well, I have not done this before. Just an idea.

I think I get your idea. I wonder if we can do a 2-level Thing where black areas are level 0 and other areas are level 1. I will take a look at OpenSCAD to see how to do this.

Can you share the code? If it was usable in processing you could post it on their forum to let the world help with the next step.

What type of code would be useful for these png files?

You said you had created software...that implies you wrote code to compile or execute to produce the png files. If so it was in a computer language. What or how did you create the "software"?
