NB Video. Jump forward to ~1:30 to begin!

NB 1.  When there’s a length or an option, you can type it (if you can)
NB 2.  Use a two button mouse, use a big/second screen (if you can)

drawing: (you can either click to draw or type the dimensions you want)

  • points
  • circle
  • line
  • rec
  • polyline
  • curve


  • length: length of line or curve
  • distance: distance between two points
  • area: area of a surface

geometric transformation:

  • orient: good when the thing you’re moving is asymmetric/sided/chiral
  • offset: scale and copy
  • scale1D: good for resizing lines
  • scale2D: good for resizing flat shapes
  • scale (you can indicate with numbers the scaling factor)
  • move
  • copy
  • arraycrv: orient and copy


  • loft: make connecting surface between two lines/curves
  • extrude
  • make2d: create 2d shape of selected surface, according to current view
  • unrollSrf: turn a volume into flat components
  • dupBorders: produce curve from boundary of a surface


  • explode
  • split: divides a line/curve/surface at a center point/line/intersective-surf/curv
  • trim: split + delete
  • extend
  • rebuild

make many out of one:

  • divide: dividing lines/curves into equal parts
  • rebuild: either turn cuves into lines or make ugly curves pretty curves


  • layer: show layers window (use many layers!)
  • show/hide
  • setPt
  • zs: zoom set, show you just the selected object in the active transport
  • join: make one curve out of many segements
  • group

DUE Monday April 16: Presentation on Final Project

Assignment,Description — Ali Momeni @ 11:01 pm

Please be prepared to give a 20-seconds/20-slides presentation on your plans for the final project:

  • Prepare a Google Presentation or Prezi to give us a clear sense of your conceptual intentions and technical plans for the project
  • Include the following in your presentation: concept overview (text), technical plan (diagrams, sketches, photos), inspiration (links, images, artists), foreseen difficulties (technical, conceptual)
  • Bring your collection of objects to show and discuss

Advanced Interactivity with Max

Max — Ali Momeni @ 10:57 pm

Here are a few places to search if you want to know whether something is possible in Max:

  • Cycling ’74 Forum: Many years of conversation among max users; use the Advanced Forum Search to see of someone else has come across your inquiry
  • Excellent database of 3-rd Party development for Max; this are patches and externals made by people outside of Cycling ’74 that do cool and quirky things.
  • Jitter Recipe Books by Andrew Benson: A great set of “simple” Max patches for advanced video applications; excellent tutorials for advanced Jitter work.

Here are the patches I made in class today that demonstrate simple motion tracking controlling a LED, motion tracking for assessing activity in zones, sensor connected to playback speed and filter parameters of a sound file, sensor connected to servo with recording/playback i.e. memory.

Remember also to download the newest version of Maxuino; throw out the old version (alpha-12) and replace it with the new (alpha-13).  This version allows you to save the settings of your teensy (i.e. serial port, pin-mode, …).
