My attempt to render a sculpture made by the "Scherk-Collins Sculpture Generator", following similar renders by *matrixmode and *BarberofCivil.

Kind of looks like the world's most bizarre mag wheel. :-)

Unfortunately, the actual sculpture generator requires MS Windows, so I can't run it, and ended up just rendering one of the example models on the site... :-/

The model is a bit low poly, maybe some surface-subdivision would be a good thing.

Hi, nice render.
I've downloaded Sculpture Generator, but it gives me an error when i try to open it:
Application Initialization failed
can't read ''errorInfo'': no such variable. and it just opens the program as a small grey window with no menus or anything. Im running winXP pro sp2. Does anyone know what's wrong?

Thanks

Nice lighting anyway! I like how you've got it propped up with a couple of cylinders. Sorry you can't run the program. It really is a blast.

Pretty cool. Does seem pretty low poly though. I guess you could run the mesh through some subdivisions still even if you can't run the actual program.
Hmm, I recognize that background...

Ugh, yeah, a mesh subdivision function would be a nice thing all-round (plenty of low-poly models on the net) ... more code to write. :-) I don't think it's hard in general, but there seem to be tons of picky little special cases you need to worry about to get good results.

[There's actually a subdivision framework in the CGAL (Computational Geometry Algorithms Library) library, but that library uses the braindead QPL license, so I can't distribute it with my code. Thanks, but no thanks...]

Oops, double post!
BTW, you'll see I tactfully rotated so as to hide that dumb lady in the background...
