In Topic: 3D Heart UV-unwrap needed for wedding anniversary project

31 May 2011 - 12:43 AM

I was more thinking about a wire frame like this. But instead of bending and twisting, weld or solder it (I do have the tools and experience to do that). And because I intend to make a slightly bigger one than in that picture, make the wireframe more fine (more wires). Kind of like the picture/wireframe you posted.

I hadn't yet considered the wire mesh/net though. I'll think about it. It seems like a material that is easy enough to work with.

Thanks a lot by the way for the pictures of the heart. The wireframe is nice and I think it may serve as a good basis for the design.

Thank you both for your feedback. I downloaded papercraft (nice tool, may use it more often), and found out that it could not make much sense of it. At least, it came up with something very unexpected. Using papercraft I took a closer look at the shape (having a 3D representation helps, I couldn't for the life imagine it in my head) and I understand your point sunandshadow. You can't make it without either seriously contracting/stretching the material, or having creases in the final result. I'm sure there are ways to do it (blacksmithing style) but I don't have any experience with that, let alone the tools.

So I'll have to think of something else. I saw some hearts made of wire. Perhaps I can come up with something nice incorporating that.

Thanks again

Perhaps, by coincidence, one of your RAM sticks is corrupt/broken, and you took out the corrupted one?

In Topic: This forum problem

I haven't had any issues with this forum so far. Have you tried another browser? I've seen sites that load very slowly in IE, but are blazingly fast in Opera.

In Topic: Did anyone else do this when they first started coding?

Original post by Bow_vernon
I mostly copied the coding style of ben bishop, although mine's more crappy looking. ben used to put:
//zz> ur comment here
I somehow wonder why his code looks tidier than mine even if I copied his commenting style....although I can understand it, it just somehow looks messy...

Perhaps it's because it's not the comments that make code look tidy and understandable?

I also used to insert a lot of whitespace between methods and control blocks. I also wrote long methods and huge classes, so I needed a trigger while scrolling through a file where the next method started. Nowadays I write much smaller methods and got better as separating concerns into classes. There are much fewer walls of text now.

Also when I just started out I used to comment about every line of code I wrote:

// set counter to zero
int i = 0;

Nowadays when I read code like that I feel kind of offended by the author. As if I'm too stupid to read code and need everything written out in English.

Oh, and I also find these kind of comment kind of silly:
