concept: combining a modern „wireframe“ graphic with a classic vintage poster look
i edited the image above with the free ONLINE tool Sumo Paint to create a vintage look like i would do in photoshop. sumo paint is a great alternative to apps like gimp if you have to do small corrections on the fly because you neither have to install software nor register on the page. the handling (shortcuts,…) is similar to adobe’s photoshop and the images will not be uploaded to a server what makes it incredible fast (i at least tried a picture with dimesions of 4000 x 3000 px – no problem)!
my CONCLUSION: awesome online tool !
i’m currently working on an easy-to-use stair design script for rhino. the goal is to make it that fast, that it should take only about 3 clicks to build a full working 3D stairset.
1st click define the length of your stairset
2nd click tweak the extrusion via slider-controls (not even a keyboard required)
3rd click bake the thing out – DONE!
for extreme accuracy and functionality there are other sliders and toggles included to mirror and move stuff around. at least it takes about 2 mins to set up your stairs (in a relaxed work flow). best of all: NO calculating is required. the script automatically checks your stairs‘ proportions up on the current standards.
the script will soon be on available for free download.
