That's interesting - someone is interested in seeing a presentation on Alda at Clojure/west 2016: https://github.com/clojurewest/clojurewest2016/wiki/Suggested-Topics

@meow: I guess the cat's out of the bag -- I'll be giving that talk :simple_smile:

dave23:01:19

oh, i misread

dave23:01:35

i let the cat out of the bag then, lol -- i'll be giving a talk on alda at clojure remote :simple_smile:

dave23:01:13

i did submit the same talk for clojurewest, though

dave23:01:36

good to see there is some interest! :metal:

meow23:01:05

@dave: Excellent. I'm planning to submit a proposal for clojure/west on my polygon mesh processing library. Which I want to use for virtual reality. And who doesn't want music with their procedurally generated virtual reality? So that should finally bring me around to working with Alda. :simple_smile:

dave23:01:57

that sounds super interesting

meow23:01:51

You can see some of the shapes I've created on my twitter account: https://twitter.com/ErgoAlgorithmic

dave23:01:20

whoa, cool

dave23:01:48

what degree of control do you have over the result? like, what is the input?

meow23:01:12

100% control. I'm creating those shapes from seed platonic solids that I put through a variety of operators and ultimately output a mesh of triangles as an X3D file.

meow23:01:27

I'm still fleshing it out and just switched to using core.matrix for some of the underlying data structures but all the code is here: https://github.com/pkobrien/cad/tree/master/src/cad/mesh

dave23:01:48

whoaaaa -- github actually lets you view .stl files in 3D

dave23:01:35

this is really cool. i'm gonna have to play around with this sometime

meow23:01:36

@dave: please do - its great fun

meow23:01:54

I upload the X3D files to Shapeways so people can buy them. They have a good preview tool for the full-color designs. I'll post a link to one here in a minute.

dave23:01:49

cool -- brb in like 20 mins

meow23:01:31

Here's a fun shape. I have better control over the colors now than when I posted this one: https://www.shapeways.com/model/3dtools/4161130/1/26?key=a00a912b2bdd8118c3e413918ab68bd6
