animation node cube cluster

Nikolaus Gradwohl2016-07-27T07:16:36+02:00

For this experiment I morphed a cluster of random locations into the mesh of a cube using the animation node addon for blender. The mesh of the cube is then turned into a group of splines using the "find close vertices node" and the "Splines from Edges" node.

cube rotation experiment 1

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-12-14T05:47:29+01:00

I planned to model and animate a rubics cube for quite some time, but it turned out that animating the rotation is a lot harder than I expected it to be. After some (failed) experiments I found out that the trick is moving all the origins of the cubes to the center and using quaternoid-rotation for the animation.
