# Can someone help me with this code?

Hi, I’m working in a project. I did some code, but which is not done. I’m very new in processing. I don’t understand properly how everything works. I’ll share the project idea and code below. Can someone help me with the code please please ?
Thanks for your time and kind help

Project Idea

The project model of the bridge is to create semi-circular and circular shapes on the exterior of the wall in a regular pattern using Bezier cubic curves which will be used in computer graphics which will create smooth curves at all scales.

An algorithm is required that will transform the shapes in such a way that some part of wall appears to be decaying or decompose. The algorithm will also show the rate of parameterizable, so that decay can be observed at certain level of when the sunlight reflects the wall.

Code

void setup() {
size(600, 600, P3D);
}

void draw() {
background (0);
lights();
drawFloor();
drawSun(width/10+60, 100, 40);
drawWall();

}

void drawSun(float x, float y, float z) {
fill(255, 201, 34);//red fill
circle(56, 46, 55);
}//func

// ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

void drawFloor() {

pushMatrix();

//stroke(111);  // gray
noStroke();
fill(65,152,10); // blue
float factor1=80.0; // dist between boxes

translate(width/2, height/2, 0);

for (int x=-55; x<55; x++) {
for (int z=-55; z<55; z++) {

pushMatrix();
translate(x*factor1 - (4*factor1/2),
height-111,
z*factor1 - (4*factor1/2) );
box(80);  // size of 40 (width, height and depth)
popMatrix();
}
}
popMatrix();
}

void drawWall(){
fill(250, 0, 0);
rotateY(PI/6);
rect(150, 350, 600, 200);
}

Interesting project! My first thought for creating a physical artifact is toxiclibs. It enables you to generate STL files that work with many fabrication devices; I 3D printed the output of a Processing sketch last week. You can install the library like so.

and just for you code, when you post it at the forum

void setup() {
size(600, 600, P3D);
}

void draw() {
background (0,0,100);
lights();
drawFloor();
drawSun(width/10+60, 100, 40);
drawWall();
}

void drawSun(float x, float y, float z) {
fill(255, 201, 34);
circle(x, y, z);
}

void drawFloor() {
push();
noStroke();
fill(65, 152, 10);
translate(width/2, height/2, -500);
float factor=5.0; // dist between boxes 80
for (int x=-55; x<55; x+=factor) {
for (int z=-55; z<55; z+=factor) {
pushMatrix();
float posx = x*factor + (4*factor/2);
float posy = height/2+100;
float posz = z*factor + (4*factor/2);
translate(posx, posy , posz );
box(20); //80
popMatrix();
}
}
pop();
}

void drawWall() {
fill(250, 0, 0);
rotateY(PI/6);
rect(150, 350, 600, 200);
}

with this small changes i see

if you draw 3D better also see 3D ( PTZ mouse keyboard operation )

void setup() {
size(600, 600, P3D);
info_print();
}

void draw() {
background (0, 0, 100);
lights();
PTZ();
}

void draw_object() { //_________________called by / from inside PTZ
drawSun(width/10+60, 100, 40);
drawFloor();
drawWall();
}

void drawSun(float x, float y, float z) {
push();
noStroke();
translate(x,y,z);
fill(255, 201, 34);
sphere(20);
pop();
}

void drawFloor() {
push();
noStroke();
fill(65, 152, 10);
translate(width/2, height/2, -500);
float factor=5.0; // dist between boxes 80
for (int x=-55; x<55; x+=factor) {
for (int z=-55; z<55; z+=factor) {
pushMatrix();
float posx = x*factor + (4*factor/2);
float posy = height/2+100;
float posz = z*factor + (4*factor/2);
translate(posx, posy, posz );
box(20); //80
popMatrix();
}
}
pop();
}

void drawWall() {
push();
fill(250, 0, 0);
rotateY(PI/6);
rect(150, 350, 600, 200);
pop();
}

@helpMe – is this project / is the instruction sheet a homework assignment?

could you test both my code versions?

@kll yes I did both 2D and 3D, I’m trying to make circles in the wall. Do you have any idea how to make circles ?

actually i am not so good with 3D,
but when i play 3D sketchup i could make a wall, and cut out windows (push pull).

( my house left / right the sketchup planning )
but in processing you can paint windows on a wall ( like rectangles on a big rectangle or slim cube )
but i worry you could not LOOK THROUGH ( but not tested transparency that much… )

so actually when CUT OUT not works must work other way, construct wall shape with arcs…
and only fill OUTside of the arcs?
that could be your next step learn createshape…

i just try a arc the shape vertex way:

PShape s;  // The PShape object
int xs   = 120, off  = 10;  // arc design
int posx = 20, posy = 20;   // arc position

void my_arc(int  xs, int off) { // my_arc( width (outside ) , width beam );
//  int xs = 100;
int ys = xs/2;
//  int off = 10;
int r = (xs - 2* off )/2;
int mx = xs/2;
int my = ys;
s = createShape();
s.beginShape();
s.fill(0, 0, 200);
s.noStroke();
s.vertex(0, 0);
s.vertex(0, ys);
s.vertex(off, ys);
for ( int i =0; i<180; i++ ) {
int x = mx+ int(r * cos(radians(i)-PI));
int y = my+ int(r * sin(radians(i)-PI));
s.vertex(x, y);
}
s.vertex(xs-off, ys);
s.vertex(xs, ys);
s.vertex(xs, 0);
s.vertex(0, 0);
s.endShape();
}

void measurement() {
line(posx, posy+xs/2, posx, posy+xs/2+60);
line(posx, posy + xs/2+10, posx + xs, posy + xs/2+10);
line(posx + xs, posy+xs/2, posx + xs, posy+xs/2+60);
text("xs="+xs, posx + xs/2-20, posy + xs/2+22);
line(posx, posy + xs/2+30, posx + off, posy + xs/2+30);
line(posx + off, posy+xs/2, posx + off, posy+xs/2+60);
text("off="+off, posx+2, posy + xs/2+50);
}

void setup() {
size(200, 200);
my_arc(xs, off);
}

void draw() {
background(200, 200, 0);
shape(s, posx, posy);
measurement();
}

hope you can use?
