I used S68’s bag tool to do this (exactly what I dreamt to do when I first saw his tool, something I tried to do with Excel charts a few years ago duh ). Thanks S68, you rule: It’s really great.
My computer is so slow it drives me nuts. I really would like to decrease the number of vertices. If you guys can look at the large version of the pic, and the code, and tell me where the catch is, I’d appreciate: eventually, I don’t want to see the moiré anymore…
The bag file I used (I parametrized some elements):
<BAG version="0.0.4"> <Reference>Cylindrical</Reference> <Label> Fading Wave (yeah, right) </Label> <F1> u </F1> <F2> 2*pi*v </F2> <F3> cos(u*a)*exp(-u/b)*h </F3> <ParU Min="0.0" Max="10.0"> 300 </ParU> <ParV Min="0.0" Max="10.0"> 160 </ParV> <UserPara Name="a" Value="1.0" Index="0"> No of hops </UserPara> <UserPara Name="h" Value="2.0" Index="0"> Ampliture </UserPara> <UserPara Name="b" Value="2.0" Index="0"> Exponential Amortization </UserPara> </BAG>
Because I’m at work (on lunch) , it may take me some time to get back to you (no offense).
