Hello,
I know a lot of things in Carrara, but there is a symbol which intrigues me since always… “Formula” !
Is there somebody who could explain in simple manner to what that is useful and what can one await from this option.
Thank you!

Just as the title implies, you enter in a formula, it creates the result. I’ve never tried this, but I found a topic on just what you’re asking, if you’re interested in learning wink

Cool, ‘cause I wasn’t finding any fun at that link I’ve posted! This is much better!

This site is in French, but it lists some formulas and shows pictures of the results.  Most them are pretty complex, but they give you a good idea of what’s possible…

Excellent! That’s exactly what I was looking for! But now I’ll have to find a way to translate that main menu! shock
Thanks for this!

Dart, I looked at all the links of this topic and I see only sites not very cool.

Ramble, super!
I suppose that, by making a “Copy/Paste” of the formulas and one will have the stuff automatically?
I will test !

Merci.

I actually fiddled with it once to do this
two objects with the p2 sliders animated in reverse to each other
r1=10*p1;
r2=10*p2;
t=2*PI*u;
p=PI*(v-0.5);
x=r1*cos(t)*cos(p);
y=r1*sin(t)*cos(p);
z=r1*sin(p);
that is just the carrara torus formula BTW, I have no idea about maths!

                  you know I have always seen the formula thingy and never really tried to make use of it——It seems at first glance to have some powerful possibilities and seems maybe even a spot for some additional plugin help maybe?

I’m with you on that. But clicking on some of the links in that french page makes me want to try it more - so I bookmarked it. Once you click on a french word, it takes you to the Carrara settings (the same for most languages, I think….) with a visual example of what it creates. We’re talkin’ shaders, models, etc., very cool site!
Now if only DuDu would find it in his heart to tell us which word means what, in English… well…. wink
