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.

Spirals and helixes would be an interesting addition, though I'm sure this would be a tad more complicated than basic shapes and curves

I love this!, a really cool feature to add would be to be able to rotate the preview.

It would be very helpful if you could maybe link up the circle designs with the 2 Dimensional site, as I use both. I am making a structure and I laid out the plan for it using the 2-D site, but I need a dome on it and it isn't the same. But I love the site anyways, very helpful. =\:^w^:/=

you should add a way to download your model because i build over time and cant get it exactly the way i had it with the curve... cool tool for building though. ^~^

It would be nice if we could download each layer as an img because it's hard to see the whole thing when you are making something big (485, 485, 485 in my case)

Could you make the self design one more design-able so it could be a bit more complex with multiple curves???

I have been looking for a way to rotate 3d objects (not necessarily curved) in minecraft. Specifically, I want to make a pyramid with a cap that has (in appearance) levitated and spun on it's center axis to a degree of my choosing. I regularly use sites like this (and building guides in modded minecraft) to make curves, but to make something complex (like a spaceship crashing into the ground at an angle for instance) still escapes me. I have no idea how this could be done, but I am hoping some math enthusiast would be willing to tackle this problem in a relatively simple to use program. Any takers?

Assuming that the pyramid base (which is a square) is "straight" (I.e. Has a slope of 0) the Slope of the 4 lines of the cap base would be tan(a pi/180) and -cot(a pi/180) two of each and a is the wanted degree

Go to the Google Calculator and you'll find cot and tan
