SMN v4.0 Dynamic Draw

SMN Dynamic Draw is an SMN based dynamic canvas that evolves as one draws on it. Later SMN examples will be extended to arbitrary systems, not just pixels or particles (see v3.2).

This version illustrates some of the functionality of SMN, such as the use of sparse matrices and energy flow processing.

This is a DOS based program and it should run on all windows systems (linux versions coming soon).

View the Public Notice that accompanied the release of SMN Particle Simulator v3.1, but which is relevant to all of these SMN examples.

Download Software [370 Kb (it includes some pre-computed models), Dos/Windows], just unzip and run “Draw.bat”. Note: this version will be updated regularly until it reaches a steady state (this version uploaded on 2006/02/06) Note: any d40 files made with previous versions will need to be re-computed and saved again.

More information on the SMN system modeling paradigm. In particular the SMN high level design.

There are also other programs.

Note: the simulation is not meant to be a fully featured drawing program, this is just a simple illustration of some of the capacities of the SMN modeling paradigm.

This image is a representation of the form of the system matrix that is used to implement the topology of the 2D interaction space through which the systems (pixels) interact.

Some Images created using SMN Dynamic Draw

Here I began with a blank canvas, pressed pause then wrote SMN with a moderately fine black brush.

Then I un-paused it for a second and it evolved into this image.

Which continued to evolve further.

Then I carved it up a little using the eraser (right mouse button).

Then changed brushes and coloured it further as it evolved.
