Properties and Behaviors of an Object

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi everyone.

I want to build beautiful objects in a computer - object means something which has shape and behavior. I feel comfortable in writing down behavior of an object but I am struggling with writing shape of an object.

A Table:

Wave-forms:

Is it possible to build any shape and any waveform by simply using Lines and Points?
This is Batman Curve. Is this how I can create any shape (table above, or book, or chair, or circle) and any wave-forms?
Thanks!

You started another thread about 10 months ago on pretty much the same topic - https://www.physicsforums.com/threads/a-single-or-multiple-equations-of-y.921421/. See post #9 to get an idea of how shapes can be represented in a computer. In a nutshell, a shape can be represented by a large collection of points that define the object, and the points can be connected to form small geometric figures, such as triangles or rectangles, that approximate the shape of the object. If you want a better approximation, use more points.

The graphs you showed have nothing to do with what you're asking. There are a number of software packages that let you desigh shapes on a computer. Do a search for CAD programs (CAD == computer assisted design).
