Geomerative Polygonizer

polygonizer_lengthHave just uploaded a new code bundle, featuring:

  • A bug fix to the polargraph_server_polarshield firmware. The command to set the pen lift height wasn’t working properly. (v1.3.1)
  • New feature in Polargraph Controller, the polygonizer can now be swapped between two styles, ADAPTATIVE (0) and UNIFORMLENGTH (1) by clicking CYCLE POLYGONIZER. The latter one has a parameter too, to actually set the length (POLYGONIZER LENGTH). The pic above is shows changing the length, so you get some pretty tasty effects from it. The polygonizer is part of Geomerative, which is a beautiful library.
  • Also in Polargraph Controller, the zoom works better now. (v2.4.0)

The polygonizer work was prompted by some excellent troubleshooting by Visualbyte and DaniK on two threads in the forum:

I’m not convinced it will point-blank solve your problems, but gives you an extra tool to experiment with.

This bundle (2016-03-29-10-23) contains the updates

(But here’s a link to the most recent release to help this post stay relevant in the future.)

    • Mark when someone sends me a Mac I’ll build it! Seriously though, I’ve got no way to build for OSX, so I’m reliant on the kindness of strangers. You can build from source though, right?

      I wonder if I can borrow a mac from work to do it.
