3D Shape generator using OpenGL3 and OpenCL

• Tags: GPU OpenGL OpenCL

The Belgian scientist Johan Gielis discovered a mathematical formula to describe many shapes existing in nature. This formula is called the "Super Formula". To demonstrate GPGPU and to show that it can be used for many purposes including simply having some fun, we developed the "SuperShaper". A tool that uses OpenCL to create very high-detail 3D models using the Super Formula. Read More
