Welcome to Stereo Imagination, a command-line tool to automate the creation of 3D models with many repetitive elements, such as staircases or colonnades. The results can be fed into a game development pipeline, or used by themselves as visualizations. Generated models can be saved as STL files, and only include geometry information -- colors or textures are outside the scope of this software.

Getting started

Stereo Imagination is used from the command line. After downloading and installing the software (see below), open a Command Prompt, Terminal or the equivalent for your operating system, and enter the following command:

stereo sheet 2 2 > sheet.stl

If everything is all right, you should now have a file called sheet.stl in your working directory, with the following content:

solid 
facet normal 0 0 0
    outer loop
        vertex -1.000000 -1.000000 0.000000
        vertex 1.000000 -1.000000 0.000000
        vertex 1.000000 1.000000 0.000000
    endloop
endfacet
facet normal 0 0 0
    outer loop
        vertex -1.000000 -1.000000 0.000000
        vertex 1.000000 1.000000 0.000000
        vertex -1.000000 1.000000 0.000000
    endloop
endfacet
endsolid

Open this file with your favorite 3D viewer to make sure it depicts a simple square as expected.

For a more advanced example, type the following script into a file called something like spiral-stairs.lulz (the file extension doesn't matter):

for i 0 19 1 do
    make phi mul :i rad 18
    make d-z mul :i 0.25
    print rotate-z :phi translate 0.5 0 :d-z box 1 0.5 0.3
end

To run this second example, enter:

stereo load spiral-stairs.lulz > spiral-stairs.stl

which you can test as above. In fact you'll find both of them in the samples.

Features

  • Ten geometric primitives: box, bucket, cone, cylinder, disc, octahedron, prism, pyramid, sheet, simplex.
  • Five transformations: translate, scale, rotate, shear, distort.
  • A friendly scripting language to work with all of them.

More information

Stereo Imagination is powered by a scripting language called Lunar Logo, with the addition of thirty-something procedures related to 3D graphics. You can learn all about it from the included documentation.
