Vector Wizard

Auggie Vector Processor,  also know as Vector Wizard, is our fun yet controlled  play space to deal with vectors. Start link found in Auggie,  click CONS button to activate. It is our workspace to build,  design and simulate workflows.  It offers most of the usual tools found in CAD drawing programs but with an added twist. Vectors you make or load become concurrent to the laws of physics in movement principles as part of our kinetic engine in Auggie Vector Processor. Not only is it fun to use but combining it with Gearotic, Vexx and Auggie offers a full solution to making your design actually real. You'll also find another one of Gearotic's first of its kind  module called Harris Vines in Vexx or Flourish in Auggie Vector Processor., a tool that actually lets you grow  a vine  into comformed space.  We suggest you review our videos and give it a  try , don't forget to tell us what you think?

Auggie Vector Processor, not to confuse it with Vexx,  was originally designed as a tool to connect the workings of Gearotic and Auggie a little closer together. The platform had to include most basic tools found inside CAD drawing programs to build  things with an added twist. Our main objective was to bring Auggie and Gearotic closer together so combined they would help us decorate clock faces, let's face it,  Gearotic exports the code for making one, why not decorate it ?  We  also wanted to pre determine vane shape interactions when spun for optimum effect. Since this platform was very specific to kinetic and got somewhat convoluted , Vexx was born. Vexx is our stand alone drawimg program for vector cad only, this page shows features of Auggie Vector Processor.

Auggie Vector not only a vector drawing processor, but also a kinetic engine that deals with the physics  of vectors while in motion. You'll find  global properties to  each vector you design or draw that is configurable to your specifications. It  lets you release and view a simulated real life effect while in action mode for many applications. From applying gravity to locking  central pivots, all of this becomes possible with Auggie Vector Processor.. You can now add things such as motors, clutches, 4 bar linkages, magnets, springs, gates and so much more to any mechanism and watch it go. How cool is that?  For those interested in gear mechanism, you can now simulate your mechanical creation and deal with errors prior to building it. The physic interactive method allows users to interact with forces, friction,  and mechanical motion in general.  This way of working with vectors is not only fun to play with but  extremely addictive too.
We found similar tools to be absent  in other CAD programs, so this is our attempt at something different and cool. It may not be able to predict the future, but if you are building a Ted  Crawford rolling ball sculpture  or a mechanical device of some kind, I suspect this processor could be useful to you.

Vexx Kinetic Vane Manipulation


Flourish module covered in the Flourish tab, was designed as a way for us  to digitally grow vines to decorate a project. The theory we used to do this is derived from the study of compacting circles, which then motivated us to explore it further and come up with this application. Below are the 6 steps to making one.
In this example, I plan to generate a vine inside a box, but around some text. To acheive this,  I first generate the text "Gearotic", then perform an offset around the letters. Since vines can grow beyond the borders at times, I decided to create an offset so my letters would clear any vines.  
I then created a square to be my outline for the vine. Once done, I selected both vectors and grouped them to become one chain in my main layer. Since our processor deals with layers, you must copy or move these chains to the appropriate layer in order for it to work.. Once I click the flourish button, it asks to set contours. Simply copy or move your chains to the flourish layer and click the Floiurish button once again..

This should open up the Flourish type box. We need to select" Auto" for vectors,  but you could use "Photo Based" on pictures also. 

Gearotic Flourish 3

Once Auto is selected, the Flourish parameters box opens to accept your input on specifics, and how you want to grow your vine. The smaller fertilizer value you use , the larger the roots become, therefore using a higher fertilizer number means more roots and the smaller the clusters in your vine. The Motif number can be set to anything. It is used to represent a specific algorytm function depending on the number you input, other than default values, duplicates are highly unlikely,

Once you select OK, your vine is grown and ready to be used or exported as a new vector.

This is the end result of a digitally grown vine within a specific area. Vine may be exported as a DXF, or you can expot it as a image for decorative purposes

Auggie Vector Processor, the kinetic physics engine of vectors in motion.

Below is a series of clips taken while designing motion inside Auggie Vector Processor.

Vexx Global Properties

Since default settings are set to work in most cases, user continues to have access to these parameters and can change them to meet new specifics. Some of these vector options are to apply gravity, have a pivot point, or simply be static. You basically set the rules of your vector object as part of your design and play it out as a simulation.  
Springs offer many advantages in certain mechanical designs and are beneficial to have in your library of tools. When springs are used,  user may set forces applied to them in a positive or negative way, depending on your application. This image show the movement of 2 springs between 3 bars released but held at one end.

Vexx using .4 Bar Linkage

4 Bar linkage offer users that coupling reaction to alter the flow of movement. Many applications exist and can easily be utilized in Auggie Vector Processor. User selects 4 bar linkage, connects both end points , and just like that watches as the effect transforms movement to the mechanism.. 

Auggie Vector Processor. using motor to rotate vectors.

Auggie Vector Processor. also has the ability to add a motor to a design amongst other things, These can be useful when attempting to power a movement or rotate something. Motors can be set as static or floating vectors and will combine with other assemblies if instructed to. Of course speed and direction are configurable, not to mention their interaction with magnets or springs should they be applied to the project. I suggest you view our videos to get a better picture on how to use it all. If you do have any questions however, we're an email away.

Auggie Vector Processor. may look different in some of these video's, due to revision of developpement, however the theory and content remains the same..
