To change the "thickness" (relative porosity) of the structure, change the last number just inside the function, 1.4, to a value between 1.47 (thick) and 1.47 (thin); change the other coefficient proportionally (0.51) otherwise you'll get square shaped struts.

Thank you jotero, but I have the v0.6.1. The maximum grid resolution is 60 on this version.

Hi all,
happy it works for you . For the "else" instruction, if the value of the fct =1, then it's a constant > 0 ==> the surface is not defined in this area.
If you're using windows version, then you can download
the more advanced version 0.6.1.3dev :
See here for more infos
You can also compile this version for Linux (go up to 120x120x120) : http://kdeapps.org/content/show.php?content=50062 _________________ Cheers,

Hi all,
Waw jotero, thats a vevy very beautiful shape!
I would be happy to see the formulas of how your imagination is working too _________________ Cheers,

Very beautiful images, jotero. I was wondering if you can render this:
if((x<12*pi)&(x>0)&(abs(y)<4*pi)&(abs(z)<4*pi),1.0*(cos(x)*sin(y)+cos(y)*sin(z)+cos(z)*sin(x))0.0*(cos(2*x)*cos(2*y)+cos(2*y)*cos(2*z)+cos(2*z)*cos(2*x))1.46*(x6*pi)/(6*pi),1)
with x between 0 and 12*pi. y and z between 4*pi and 4*pi.
If you make something really catching, it will be the cover for this conference:

hello all
hi lophiol,
very interesting test ask times :*)
Grid=179
Code:  F():if((x<12*pi)&(x>0)&(abs(y)<4+2*pi)&(abs(z)<4+2*pi),0.83*(cos(x)*sin(y)+cos(y)*sin(z)+cos(z)*sin(x))0.0*(cos(2*x)*cos(2*y)+cos(2*y)*cos(2*z)+cos(2*z)*cos(2*x))1.46*(x6*pi)/(6*pi),0.83)
[x]:0, 12*pi
[y]:4*pi, 6*pi
[z]:4*pi, 6*pi 
and new pc
ciao

It's awesome!
But could you keep the rectangular shape it has and give it a bony aspect?
The point is that this file has already been distributed in three university in United Kingdom for a set of trials on Selective Laser Sintering. So the shape should not be changed. Additionally, the conference is about new materials and this part will be a bone substitute, so it will get more chances of beeing accepted if it is rendered like a rough, opaque white material.

very interesting.

Work also on it. Bone replacement

You caught me!
Yeah, I am actually try to characterize mechanical properties of porous matter dependence on geometricaltopological factors. One of the biggest problem of bone substitutes nowadays is that they have low strength.
Calcium phosphate is the material (better tricalcium phosphate and hydroxyapatite). I also would like to sinter this material via SLS and I notice you have a section in your forum on RP techniques. Have you ever tried to laser sinter your shapes?

I can not give you an answer about your question because of some secrecy agreements. sorry

What a pity. This literally kills the forum...
Anyway, here is my new structure made with a periodic lattice.
if((x^2+y^2<900)&(abs(z)<8 ),
cos(sqrt(x^2+y^2))*sin(24*atan(y/x))+cos(24*atan(y/x))*sin(z)+cos(z)*sin(sqrt(x^2+y^2))
+0.08*(cos(2*sqrt(x^2+y^2))*cos(48*atan(y/x))+cos(48*atan(y/x))*cos(2*z)+cos(2*z)*cos(2*sqrt(x^2+y^2)))
+2*(1.2(x^2+y^2)/450),1)
x and y 30 to 30, z 8 to 8.
Hope you all enjoy it!

Hi all,
I disagrea with that, jotero has the right to say or not what he want and we are grateful to him for what he already showing as. Also, if he choose to not talk about his work and if this kill the forum, then this is not his fault but ours: He already did more than most of us.
Anyway, great structure... _________________ Cheers,

I didn't say he has not the right to say what he wants. He can do what he likes. And I reckon he's great (just have a look to his forum... ). But sometimes work agreements can limit freedom. I worked 1 year for General Electric and I well know what Jotero is talking about.
For the same reason I am now in the academic sector, where sharing ideas is almost compulsory.
Here is a bone wedge.
if((x^2+y^2<900)&(abs(z)<30)&(x+z>0)&(xz>0),
cos(24*log(sqrt(x^2+y^2)))*sin(24*atan(y/x))+cos(24*atan(y/x))*sin(z)+cos(z)*sin(24*log(sqrt(x^2+y^2)))
+0.08*(cos(2*sqrt(x^2+y^2))*cos(2*24*atan(y/x))+cos(2*24*atan(y/x))*cos(2*z)+cos(2*z)*cos(2*sqrt(x^2+y^2)))
+2*(1.2(x^2+y^2)/450),1)
Enjoy!
