Project #3 -Math 155A - Student: JOSHUA BROBERG
I made my letter, J using a variety of shapes to see how they all look when properly shaded.
The double cone across the top spins 180 degrees, then is flipped back to its original position
undetectably. It pauses after each half spin, spending 50% of its time in motion and 50% waiting.
I didn't apply the changeable MeshCount property to my elongated cubes since I wanted to leave a
few shapes that wouldn't shade as smoothly. Anyhow, they wouldn't be cubes if I gave them more
than 6 faces.
The shapes used in this project are:
- Sombrero - a graph of the function sin(x)/x over the region [0,3*pi]
- Two cones - Placed base to base, creating a sort of elongated rounded diamond
- Cylinder - A closed strip of quads with a triagle fan at either end
- Two cubes - Stuck together at a right angle to form a sort of L shape
