Port the Source Code to C
Rascius's code is in Java/Processing and needs to port it to C. For graphics I use he xbgi library (an X11 port of the Borland Graphics Interface from the days of DOS).
Rascius's code is a bit messy and not very efficient. My code is a bit better but more could be done. Still it good enough for this purpose.
I have uploaded a version to the library.
I want to:
- import arbitary cutout shapes (dxf).
- export dxf and/or gCode.
- consider warping the pattern to better fit cutouts.
That is the basic idea.
Western culture seems to favour "white goods", we seem to lack any concept of extra-presentation even if it costs almost nothing. When was the last time you saw a "Greek Key"? Have you ever seen a greek key on a recent public structure or even a footpath/sidewalk?
I was in Japan last year and even the display panel of the vending machines "played games" when not in use. A sense of humour still is allowed to exist there!
Anyway, if you have seen a computer generated pattern that seems to mould around a shape I would be interested to look at it.
