Interface: Simple Mode

June 2, 2016 § Leave a comment

I built a Simple Mode for the interface till the new one is functional. This should make things a lot easier for you in the next release. The quick help coming soon and basic tutorials will be using this. The Assembly and Sculpt modes will be on the same screen to further simplify matters.

Crowdfunding – April 20

April 12, 2016 § Leave a comment

Crowdfunding starts on April 20 !

The campaign will be on Indiegogo.
At the end of the campaign (May 20) I will get an annual license for the development environment necessary for building the new release for Windows, Linux and Mac.

More details to follow these days !

In the meantime here are a few additions to the software and a few models I created recently:

A hexabot that will be part of the crowdfunding campaign, along with its making-of tutorial. I will do different types of simple robots and various props (guns, radar etc.) and they will all be included in the starter package during the crowdfunding. Next package will also contain a fully articulated robot-mannequin for fast character creation.

30 min assembly

I used some of the new features of Neobarok to create this model. The new Symmetry and Snap options make precision modeling a lot easier. Main tools used are Extruders and Tubes.

Inverse Kinematics

April 4, 2016 § Leave a comment

I implemented a rudimentary version of Inverse Kinematics which makes positioning complex assemblies so much easier. The method only handles linear chains of objects and does not consider transformation constraints at joints for now. A few other interesting features will be added to the IK framework in time.

Cables and lightning

Cables automatically adjust themselves to connect two objects, same as the other BiTools.


All BiTools (Hydraulics, Cables, Lightning…) are functional but still need to be fully integrated into the software core. The Lightning tool has been updated – all lightning bolts are different and are generated on the fly with little computing overhead.

A quick session showing the Lightning tool that is built on top of a BiTool (same as Guides, Muscles, Hydraulics).

A quick rig using Guides (simplest form of BiTool) to orient some eyes towards a moving butterfly.

A couple of 5-10 minute tests, using hydraulics (1,2) and complex arrays (3). I am manually rotating one wing in (1), moving the sphere in (2) and scale-rotating a spike in (3).

Muscles and hydraulics III

A 5 minute setup combining Hydraulics and Muscles in a hierarchic assembly.
BiTools (the tool that accommodates both hydraulics and muscles) can be assembled on top of each other creating complex mechanical systems.
