For the next three weeks we were set with the task of making a shape then repeating it to make a thing to 3d print. my goal is to make a repeated nonagon.
This is a simple nonagon code. I also have a screen cast explaining the code.
This is the division block what it does is you write 360 and then the number of sides you want on your shape. Then it will give you the right amount of sides if your code lets you do that.
This is a repeated nonagon.
This is the code for the repeated nonagon. Here is a screen cast explaining the code
Nonagon going up the z axes. Here is a screen cast explaining the code.
This is a nonagon on rotating around the x axes to make a cool ball. Here is a screen cast explaining my code and what it does.
This week 5C started creating on Turtle Art. First we played around with the blocks and then we were sent tasks to complete. Here is how I did them:
1. First we were asked to see what was same/different between Beetle Blocks and Turtle Art. Here is what i found
- Uses Math Blocks
- Uses Turtle/Beetle
- Turtle Art is 2D
- Beetle Blocks is 3D
Next we were challenged to recreate the polygons we made in Beetle Blocks. Here
is what I did:
Here I recreated my Nonagon. The code is very similar because I used the same variables and I used the division block again.
Next we were challenged to recreate our rotational design using our polygons.Here you can see I used my Nonagon code from before and added a little bit on. I added on the Repeat 14 block above my Repeat 9 block so it will actually make the Nonagon 14 times. Then under all of that i added the turn right block and the forward block. These will make the same shape turn 360 divided by 14 forming the finished shape.
Next we had to change the pen size to improve the shape. this is what it looks like.
Here it is with the pen size changed. The pen size block determines how big/small the line will be.
Next we were challenged to change the colour to improve our shapes.
This challenge simpler than the other challenge but it was interesting because the colours were sorted by numbers. So for example if you typed in 93 you would get a hot pink or if you type in 49 you will get an aqua. I found these colours because Mrs Watson sent us a chart with the colours and numbers on it. This is what the chart looked like:
I tried multiple times to get you a video of my code but my computer sound was not working and my code was to hard to do a written explanation so I am sorry I could not get the video for you but here is a photo of the code.
I am really disappointed that my computer was playing up for the last part but all together I really liked the last 3 weeks in design.
