carbon nanotube NEM animated in Blender

This is a version that won't be used, so I decided to post it here. I'll post a flow chart on how to visualize actual dynamics data in Blender when I get back. It has all the steps, but not all the steps are finished yet on my end. Maybe it will be a good stroy arc.

molecular rotor animation rendered in Blender

I think blender can be a very useful tool for scientific visualizations, particularly with respect to visualizations of molecular dynamics simulations. There's a couple of missing steps as far as I can tell, but I'm working on them and will save that for the next post. However if you just want to make some eye candy, you can pretty much dive right in. This is a good example of something I've come to understand: modeling stuff is easy, the tricky part is making those models represent something relevant.

free stickers!

I came up with this a while ago as a purposed emblem of a certain sub-culture that, if you're reading this, you may belong to. I don't want it to go to waste, and I'm not even a bumper sticker guy. Email me a mailing address, and when I get a good collection I will send them out. Or you could always make your own, but that's not really the same, is it?
