Blender 3D: Lego Fluid Effect

By Ray Mairlot

The new lego-style fluid simulation is an amazing development in the field of 3D graphics. This technology makes it possible to create realistic looking liquids and gases on your computer with just a few clicks! The user interface looks really familiar because you are using blocks like they did back when we were kids building houses out of bricks, but now these cubes can be programmed for any number or type substances that exist anywhere throughout space (or even beyond!).
A 2007 article written by Dr Nick Sheridon gave this insight into how he creates his models: “By creating molecules layer upon layer until each has its own distinct shape…it’s possible not only simulate what happens inside real chemical reaction occur” Making accurate representations takes time though – typically about one week per.
