Voxel Shape Generator

Written 11:36 am 7/4/2012 Modifed 10:09 pm 2/8/2015

Use this tool to make spheres for Minecraft and the like. Idea originally stolen from Neil Fraser, but more recently inspired by friendly competition with my friend Jesse, whose Circle Generator seems a little two dimensional.

Update (2/8/2015) Attempting to make this a little more bad-ass. See here

Update (3/14/2013) GUI makeover- I'm attempting to speed everything up by only rendering tables when you're ready for them. I also added isometric modeling (with culling this time) in canvas that should let you preview the shape.

Update (3/12/2013) You can now draw your own shape with Bezier curves! Adding SVG rendering methods for speed, although it's not as easy to read as tables. I'll try to make that work a bit better.

Update (9/30/2012) The script has been updated to generate cones and domes. If you have any suggestions, add them to the comments.

Is there a way to change the central coordinate of a sphere to (0,0,0)?

Not sure how to delete a post, but I retract the question. I was thinking about being able to input a starting point coordinate from Minecraft for example and then have the program calculate map coordinates for me relative to that point. Based on the way I build or excavate my shapes, it's relatively easy to do this manually.

Love this tool. I've used it for many projects.

I've built a couple of awesome domes using this. Thank you so much! I've got a new idea for a much larger structure (mwahh ha ha). A zoom tool would be a huge help though (no pun intended).

Question: If I put a solid sphere with diameter n inside a hollow sphere with diameter n+4, both centered at the same spot, can I be sure that the spheres won't touch each other if I rotate them in arbitrary directions?

I must not understand u but ur question doesn't make sense, if you rotate a circle on its centered point it doesn't changes because a the definition of a circle is the points that are equally far away from the middle point, just like a wheel when u roll/rotate it

Yes, but I'm talking about voxel spheres which don't consist of points but cubes with a size > 0.

It would be cool if you could make cylinders with this--For towers and the like. Otherwise, this is really useful.

Maybe a zoom tool would be nice.

I just thought of something else. An arch way generator would be very usefull too. Sorry I didn't mention this earlier, but I greatly appreciate this tool.

Not really, just go to the hollow dome and break the parts expect the preferred straight line

I forgot to mention, a rotation tool would also be nice. Then we'll be able to view the model from mutiple angles.

I agree with Eric there should be a rotation tool

If you could add something to remove specific layers, that would be helpful. Also there could be more shapes, such as bell curves, diamonds, and pyramids.

maybe you could add ring generation. picture the ring from lord of the rings. just add a structure generation similar to the structure of that. thanks
