A toon shader is typically used for this. Use the 'Ink 'n Paint' shader on your models, and set it for the kind of look you are after.

Here's a solution, but you'll have to change the test to something other than pDist1 > pDist2: segmentAngle = (math.pi * 2) / numberOfSides pRawAngle = math.atan2(y, x) pAngle = abs((pRawAngle % segmentAngle) - (segmentAngle / 2)) pEdgeAngle = pRawAngle - pAngle pDistanceToEdge = radius * (math.cos(segmentAngle / 2) *...

Theoretically normals are not really vectors, they are really best though of as bivectors, it just so happens that in 3D both vectors and bivector have three components so it is common to identify they two. If we lived in a four dimensional world we would not have this confusion....

In your code (downloaded), xRes and yRes are ints. Due to integer division, yRes/xRes will be zero, because xRes > yRes. You are passing this into the D3DXMatrixPerspextiveFovLH function as the aspect ratio, which will produce an invalid matrix. Instead, cast them to floats first, before doing the division, and...

The following MAXScript function demonstrates how to calculate a box2 of the safe frame dimensions, given a point2 of the viewport size and the render size. We need to account for two separate cases: one where the differences in aspect result in spacing on the left and right, and one...

If you don't use realtime shadows (it's an option, often on mobile), than you can have more or less 2 approach for dynamic objects: Use lightmap data baked into probes to approximate per-vertex lighting (no need to have realtime light). It's an approximation but can work on some contexts. Use...

A possible solution could be: to define a matrix of colour indeces: since you need 9 colours it should be a (9 x 3) matrix to use the value stored in the 5th column of your data to select the color in the color matrix (i. e. to select the...

You can do this using rgl package (interface to openGL) in R and the turn3d function ## Define a function (ys must be positive, we are spinning about x-axis) f <- function(x) 2*exp(-1/2*x) * (cos(pi*x) + sin(pi*x)) + 2 xs <- seq(0, 10, length=1000) plot(xs, f(xs), type="l") ## Rotate about...

The Box() constructor is meant for serialization only and doesn't initialize the mesh. The constructor in your upper example is deprecated. Use: tower = new Box(0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f); This will create a cube of the size 1x1x1 centered at [0, 0, 0]. Also, make sure you look at the tower....

I think your error in the 3D vs 2D surface colour is due to data normalisation in the surface colours. If you normalise the data passed to plot_surface facecolor with, facecolors=plt.cm.BrBG(data/data.max()) the results are closer to what you'd expect. Unless you have a strong reason for using imshow, you may...

Pygame doesn't have the ability to do this natively. If you really want this, you'll need to brush up on your trigonometry to map lines from the 3D space to the 2D screen. At that point, you'll essentially be re-implementing a 3D engine.

I fixed it! First thing I had to do was add my buffer binding and attribute pointing into the while loop, I guess you have to tell opengl about them every time you call useProgram. The second thing was I needed to call glUniformMatrix4fv if I wanted to pass my...

The color RGB vector is multiplied by the shade coefficient (the cosine value as you initially assumed) The logarithmic scaling is done by the target imaging device and human eyes If your colors get too dark then the probable cause is: the cosine or angle value get truncated to integer...

Using some simulated data this should get you what you want. The key is that you have to create your bivariate bins, accomplished using the cuts() function. Then treating the binned factors as levels we can then count the combinations of each factor level using the table() function: library(plot3D) ##...

Apparently, after some trial and error, the best/easiest thing to do in this case is to just to convert the r, theta, and z data points (defined as 2D arrays, just like for an x,y,z plot) into cartesian coordinates: # convert to rectangular x = r*numpy.cos(theta) y = r*numpy.sin(theta) z...

Your approach is almost correct, but you are failing at updating the info of the faces array. With every volume section you add, you add new vertices to the final mesh, so the vertices indices on the face array should be shifted accordingly. For that, keep a counter of the...

OpenGL's window space is always defined to have the origin at bottom left corner. Using some projection matrix will not flip this. It will only add a mirroring component to the transformation from eye to clip space (where later window coords are derived from). So if you feed gluUnporject with...

I'm used to solving these user-interaction problems somewhat naively (perhaps not in a mathematically optimal way) but "well enough" considering that they're not very performance-critical (the user interaction parts, not necessarily the resulting modifications to the scene). For unconstrained free dragging of an object, the method you described using unproject...

Your projection matrix is following the "classic" OpenGL conventions: viewing direction is (0,0,-1) in eye space (last row of the matrix). However, your view matrix does not follow that convention: You must put the negated forward direction into the matrix (also for calculation the translation z component there). In its...

update after further clarifications and chat The whole proint is that 3D transformatins are not commutative.

You can calculate the bounding box of your mesh, and scale it based on the number you get to make it the same size as other objects.

Are yRes and xRes declared as int? If that's the case, the division y/x may be 0. Try casting one of the variables to float. In addition, I noticed that you are calculating the aspect ratio using yRes/xRes. If you are using yRes for height and xRes for width, you...
