Ankündigung: Chemnitzer Linuxtage 2017


Am Sonntag, den 20. März findet zu den Chemnitzer Linux-Tagen der Blenderworkshop von 2016 seine Fortsetzung. Diesmal wird die Berlin-Clock im Browser zum Ticken gebracht. Uhren in 2D gibt es viele, aber diese Uhr (3D) kann in alle Richtungen gedreht werden. Dazu passend liefert Blender die 3D-Objekte. Die Python-Logik wird im zweiten Schritt durch JavaScript ersetzt. Eine Browserdarstellung erfolgt schließlich durch den Export mit Blend4Web, einer Erweiterung von Blender.
Ich freu mich auf viele Interessenten, die vielleicht auch am Programmierwettbewerb teilnehmen wollen. Website zum Wettbewerb
Material zum Workshop & Übersicht Workshops in Chemnitz 2017

School example topics


Even if we only get information about the war from news channels war is always present! Everybody has heard about the destruction of Palmyra or from the world war one and the second world war. Two projects are focusing on the consequences of war activities in different ways.

Is 3D art able to complete topics at school? Get a first impression of these options.

The first project is reconstructing areas and sculptures from locations under threat of destruction. More background information is given in an interview. A sample of the project is given with the following 3D-Animation:


A totally different way to address the war is a short movie. It was a surprise for me to watch the movie "POILUS", which is showing the meaninglessness of war.

It is a project of students at ISART DIGITAL

Let’s Build A Simple Interpreter


“If you don’t know how compilers work, then you don’t know how computers work. If you’re not 100% sure whether you know how compilers work, then you don’t know how they work.” -— Steve Yegge

Thats the beginning of an interessting series. With python and an interesting tutorial you can learn all to answer to the statement obove with "Yes, I know how a computer works, with Python!"

Blend4Web: Labels


Create labels is described in the manual. If the commands once performed and actions copied from the *Info Window* to a script, it is easy to add labels with information and it is reduced therefore to a few clicks!

Blend4Web: Installation and first test


A relatively new development is the appearance of 3D objects in the browser. Blender also follows this trend and an interesting Implementation is the »Blend4Web« project. The viewer needs only a Web browser and need to know where the page is to be found. How this can be achieved is demonstrated in this new series of PyMove3D tutorials. This is also the last step of the »Berlin-Clock« tutorial. Follow the Menu »Blend4Web« on the left side.
