spiral grow

This is another particle system that emits particles. This time the particle instance are quads that get an initial rotation speed.

particle particles

for this animation I used a particle instance modifier on an icosphere that is working as an emmitter for another particle system.

dead particle structure

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-05-22T06:32:27+02:00

I made another animation using a 3D structure built by dead particles in blender. This time the emitter is a icosaeder (aka isosphere) instead of a hexagon

I used dead particles to build a helical structure

particle tiles

I made a particle system using larger tiles that move along a curve

keyed surface

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-05-18T06:38:19+02:00

For this animation I used pyroevils cubesurfer addon to create a surface from a keyed particle system. unfortunately the python api doesn´t update particle positions of a keyed particle system so there are a view workarounds necessary to get it work (see pyroevils post in the blenderartists forum for details)

deflect particles

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-05-11T06:28:12+02:00

for this animation I used a similar setup as in my blog post last week, but instead of creating an iso-surface from the fluid particles I used the molecular addon and made sure they don't overlap.

ping goo

Nikolaus Gradwohl2015-05-07T06:29:56+02:00

for this animation I used an iso-surface on a fluid particle system. To make the particles fall back on the sphere I disabled gravity and added a negative force-field in the center of the sphere.

For the material I didn´t use a SSS-Shader but added a translucent and a diffuse shader (looks very similar in this case but renders a hell lot faster)

volume particle grid

The particles in this animation start on a volume grid of a complicated mesh with a bunch of modifiers
