Sandify Patterns

Some folks here have suggested that a system of sorts be set up such that patterns can be shared amongst community members. In an attempt to kick off what I hope will become a large repository of sandify-generated patterns, here’s my first submission.

Parameters:

;  Content type: shape
;    Selected Shape: Web
;    Large circle radius: 21
;    Small circle radius: 19
;    X offset: 0
;    Y offset: 0
;    Number of loops: 135
;    When transforming shape: smear
;    Spin: true
;      Spin (+/-): 1.2
;      Spin by: function
;        undefined: (i-(6^1.75))*sin((i-(i^1.15))/(6*(i/18.5)))
;    Grow: true
;      Scale (+/-): 125
;      Scale by: constant
;    Track: false
;  Path reversed: true


Reversed: (center->out)

I also have the SVG file, but can’t figure out how to share it here. If anyone knows, please let me know.

Open to comments and feedback. Hoping others share as well!

Looks awesome. Thanks for sharing. @vicious1, can you enable uploads of .SVG files?

Looks like I’ve got a bug with the math function saving as undefined :blush:

Just added it, does it work?

Sorry my notifications seem to be delayed a few hours.

Just tried. It allows the file type, but was disallowed due to file size. My file is 4.4MB.

It looks like the new svg optimizations have improved the svg output size by enough to allow uploading :tada:!

It is 2.0MB now.

I’m not 100% sure I got it exactly right. The starting size doesn’t seem to be in the notes…

Interesting. I went back and looked in the original gcode and the starting size wasn’t captured in the notes. I think the starting size was around 0.6. In any case, I think you got it pretty close!

The spin value also didn’t seem to be captured. I think bob is working on a better format for the notes anyway.

We may be missing values… I’ll review to be sure all are captured in the comments.

211 layers (using 0.2.4) …

Nice! You put that together fast.

That is freaking cool!

This was drawn over a simple horizontal wipe:

; Track: true
; Track size: 73
; Track length: -15.95
; Number of loops at each track position: 1
; Track grow: false
