    In the previous episode, we created a progressively-generated starfield we moved through with the camera turtle, creating a cool flying-through-space effect. But it has a few issues we should address. Firstly, it is possible for a star to end up flying through the windscreen of our spaceship! Which is cool, but looks a bit strange. Second, ...

    In this second part of our introduction to turtleSpaces Logo, we’re going to take the stars we made in the first part, and create a ‘rolling’ starfield we are going to move through using the camera turtle, to create a Star Trek-style warp effect.

  • A Guide to 3D Printing Using turtleSpaces
    This guide is in development Valid shapes: Shapes must be closed, that is they must have no exposed ‘inside’ faces. Closed shapes include: voxel, voxeloid, sphere, spheroid, icosphere, icospheroid, cappeddome, cappeddomoid, cylinder, torus, etc. Note: the cylinders used for large pen sizes (rope) are valid shapes and appear to slice correctly. Warning: open shapes will be rejected by your 3D ...
