moar blender physics videos
Here is some other stuff I have done in recent months.

Some very quickly modelled apples which were array'd, made real and rigid bodied.
The video is in two parts; part 1 has a small problem with the centers of the apple object and part 2 has that fixed.

It is very interesting. Blender has no concept of where an objects center of mass is, so uses it's Origin point for the rigid body calculations. My apples all have their Origin point at the center of the scene and so fall as if all the apples are falling as little marbles in one place. As soon as I set the Origin point to the center of the individual objects geometry the simulation acts as expected.

Then there was some fun with very basic building blocks that created spheres using the Hair emitter.

and then again but ensuring the emitter location was set to volume and the distribution to Grid

Then a bit more physics. I saw this Blendernation post about Keva blocks and it has sat in my favourites waiting for ages.
My take was to add motion blur, DoF and strong lights, producing a stark contrast.

Very watchable...

live pi really
And just like that the Raspberry Pi HiRes Project is live!

The video is also live.

The file has been uploaded to https://www.blendswap.com/blends/view/92876 (currently in the moderation queue).

you disolved what limited
The Raspberry Pi HiRes Project bug bit me today(finally)

Went through the model looking at the geometry and there was quite a bit of wastage. But I found a new way of removing obviously extraneous geometry, Limited dissolve.

Here you can see the CSI connector made of lots of faces and then again after the Limited dissolve.
two screenshots showing blenders limited dissolve

Go into Edit mode and select the faces, click the Delete button in the Tool Shelf and from the options select Limited dissolve

Spent a hour repeating that and also removing duplicated or old geometry that was hidden inside other parts of the mesh.

who is blocking the project me me me
I am getting really fed up with a certain person. They are the sole reason I have not yet released the Raspberry Pi HiRes Project

I am, of course, talking about me. From illness to family concerns, I have no excuses.

I know it is bad, because rather than work on the project I watched "Howard the Duck" last night. Unfortunately I can point to many opportunities lost to TV and film.

Am I really afraid of completing the project?

I certainly have seen this sort of behaviour in the past, but I usually just get over it after a bit.

Maybe this post will spur me on...
