“Writing surfaces” [parametric variants – Mathcad]


These variants have been developed from the original seed (top most image) sourced by George L. Legendre. This is work in progress, part of an ongoing investigation into the methods of “writing surfaces”. All the variants have been developed from a single piecemeal seed that builds on 5 separate functions describing each of the 4 “wall surfaces” and the single “top surface”. Reference reading – ijp : The book of surfaces.

Apparently, this hasn’t been a successful attempt of hard coding math yet. There seems to be an extremely close resemblance to free form control point deformation in any of the other animation packages and unfortunately, does not reflect the rigors of coding different math for each of the 5 surfaces and yet managing to stitch them . I was vaguely aware of this issue ever since I began working on the seed, and quite naturally, attracted a critique on the same lines.

More updates to follow later.
