This gallery contains images made with SuperPatch.
I made some patterns from the funcion described as follows.
cos(x) * cos(z) + cos((sqrt(3)*x-z)/2) * cos((x+sqrt(3)*z)/2) + cos((sqrt(3)*x+z)/2) * cos((x-sqrt(3)*z)/2)
|First, I used this funcion in color_map.
With SuperPatch you can use any function as a pattern
in normals, pigments and textures.
This pattern has twelve-fold symmetry.
But there are many shapes like pentagon somehow.
|Next, I use the function in isosurface object.
This is generated by dividing the x-z plane into two regions according to the value of the function.
In this image I modified the function above to make three dimensional pattern.
|This is generated by dividing the x-z plane into many regions|
These images are smooth connection of cylinders made with isosurface object.
|I made a lattice using trigonometric function.|
|This is a three dimensional version of the previous image.|
|This object is made with poly object of the official version of POV-Ray.|
But it is much easier to use isosurface object instead.
