Entagma has shared a new guide to generating pattern 3D sculptures inside Houdini. The new video discusses a way you can use wave interference or the wave’s amplitude to move points of a plane in space to create an outstanding pattern.
While on season break we received quite a few questions. One of those emails pointed us to the amazing work of Loris Cecchini, a sculptor who created (among other stunning artworks) those wave pattern sculptures. At first, it didn’t seem clear what’s going on there.
However, when you take a closer look it turns out those shapes are caused by what’s called wave interference. That’s when multiple waves overlap and create more complex shapes. Usually, interference is displayed as a 2D graph or some sort of heatmap. However, if you use the wave’s amplitude to move points of a plane in space, you can create those mesmerizing patterns.
Make sure to share your thoughts on the guide in the comments.
