I am RenderBot

I am RenderBot (I dream pixels)

A networked autonomous art machine consisting of a Raspberry Pi 3 with Blender and Python scripting. Every two hours, at fifteen minutes after the hour, the little bot posts the most recently generated image to its own account on Twitter.

Currently, @IamRenderBot is creating reticulated biomorphic forms based on the “superformula” algorithm by Johan Gielis and rendering them as 800×800 px images with HDR-based lighting. Now, images are also stamped with the generating parameters for recreation at higher resolution later.  

The idea for the render bot came from a Medium article by Etienne Bouteillé, who provides an excellent write-up on how to get a Raspberry Pi rendering images with Blender.

Experimental Renders

Experimental Renders

Recent visual experiments with 3D modeling and rendering, often involving procedural or generative geometric elements (and or letterforms) combined with intense physical simulation of light and surface interaction. 

Most of these images were produced with free and open source software, including Blender (with its venerable Cycles rendering engine), MeshLab and Wings 3D.
