Fractal Tree in C++ using OpenGL

A 2D fractal tree using code in the site in openGL. I am intending to modify the program to make it a 3D tree.

Here is the SnapShot:(Actually the tree drawn is upside down)

Here is the code.

Points in 3D with gaussian Distribution


In JOGL this is so easy that I was amazed. Im Trying to generate blobby objects. In the hearn and baker text book its mentioned that points in a gaussian distribution with a surface where the density of the points falls below a threshold is rendered. Will keep updated everyone if this does result in a blobby object.
This piece of code does the magic:

                GL2 gl = arg0.getGL().getGL2();
for(int i=0;i<MAX_RAND;i++)
for(int i=0;i<MAX_RAND;i++)

Car Viewer in TurboC++

This project was created  several years back when I was not good at programming. I was a learner then. I knew very little of graphics. Yet I tried to rotate and do coordinate transformations. This project does viewing... For theory behind this refer James D Foley "Computer Graphics"


It was supposed to be a car but without wheels.
I am pasting the source here itself for online viewing.

Very soon I will modify the code to perform 3D viewing from any arbitrary position. Currently I am assuming many things. Will post the modified code soon. Several bugs in the software... got confused with x,y and z axis.

3D Path/ 3D Snake in JOGL

In this project I have used nio FloatBuffer and evaluators of bezier curves. Two bezier curves are joined at the intersection point. The snake winds its way through the 3D path at random. So control points to draw the bezier curve are chosen randomly. The last point of the first curve and the first point of the second curve are same. Not only that second last and last point of the first curve and first and second point of the second curve are lying on the same line.


Here is the Source.

Bicycle Riding

Copyright rests with the author Muhammed Tariq Siddiqui at the following site(Planet-source-code).

I ran the program and found out it requires no modification to run in ubuntu.


This program has used quadric surfaces such gluDisk, gluCylinder and gluSphere which are tesselations of disks and partial disks or arcs.

Conway's Game of Life

Conway was interested in a problem presented in the 1940s by mathematician John von Neumann, who attempted to find a hypothetical machine that could build copies of itself and succeeded when he found a mathematical model for such a machine with very complicated rules on a rectangular grid. The Game of Life emerged as Conway's successful attempt to drastically simplify von Neumann's ideas. The game made its first public appearance in the October 1970 issue of Scientific American, in Martin Gardner's "Mathematical Games" column. From a theoretical point of view, it is interesting because it has the power of a universal Turing machine: that is, anything that can be computed algorithmic-ally can be computed within Conway's Game of Life.

The rules of the game can be found all around the Internet. I have created a mesh of cells with randomly assigned values of alive or dead. Then iterated thorugh the mesh of cells and toggled according to the rules.
