I have a Glowforge Laser Cutter that I purchased during the initial crowdfunding stage for about half-price. The thing is, it took more than two years to arrive, and when it did, I had already kind moved on to other things. Now I have a project in mind. I want to create coral-like shapes that feel like specimen collections from nature but are made from recycled materials like cardboard and heavy paper stock.
In the video above, I walk through how I use Cinema 4D and X-Particles’ Cell-Auto feature to create organic shapes with Cinema 4D and X particles that look like coral-like shapes.
Check out the next post to see how I create vector shapes and laser cutter files from the black and white images.
