dropshadow in processing

Nikolaus Gradwohl2010-06-29T05:16:00+00:00

I made a little "workflow"-diagram, that draws boxes with a little dropshadow. I do this by calling a paint method that does all the drawing. Then I apply a blur filter and shift the whole image slightly to the upper right. Then the paint method is called again, and draws the boxes, arrows, and text entries.

Custom Cookie Cutters for the Makerbot

Nikolaus Gradwohl2010-06-27T19:34:00+00:00


there is a new version of the CookieCutter-Editor!

Recently some very awsome cookiecutter-designs started to show up on thingiverse (like the escher cookie cutter or the jigsaw cookie cutter, and many more) (and one of the local radiostations has played "last cristmas", because it's only 6 months till x-mas O_o )

So i thought about how the generation of such custom cookie cutters could be simplified and i developed a custom cookie cutter generator in processing.

Click here to download the processing sketch.

Basically it's a very very simple vector graphic programm, where you can design the cookie form you want to have. to export the design as a stl file press the letter 'e'

this is my day 26 project for 30daysofcreativity

This is what the cookie-cutter-editor looks like


This is what the generated stl file looks like

And this is what the printed cookie-cutter looks like (still have to fiddle around with my skeinforge settings a bit)

I also made a bigger version, to make it a bit more readable on a computer screen
