I needed a cool mesh to test some true voronoi patterns.
And in the spirit of Easter;
the Stanford Bunny seemed like the perfect subject!
The cell-center distribution for the voronoi patterns was generated using charge particle simulations:
The particles can move freely within a 1mm thick voxel model of the bunny. They repel and attract each other. And over time they form a near perfect distribution across the surface.
Next, the 1mm wide voronoi pattern was generated within the same 1 mm thick voxel model, resulting in round 1mm wires.
And finally the voxel model was polygonized using a marching cubes algorithm, and cleaned using VCG lib functions.
Stanford_Bunny - Voronoi pattern stl
Is based on single charges, producing a smooth distribution and a honeycomb like pattern.
Stanford_Bunny - Voronoi2 pattern stl
Is based on sets of 2 linked charges, or lines actually. This produces slightly elongated cells. Resulting in a more more crackly pattern.
And although it is not a derivative,
hat-tip to Roman Hegglin's "Stanford Bunny Voronoi style":
Happy Easter everyone!
