I started with the Celfuuu, February 26, 2014,. I created a few cel-named tools already (celzium/celzius in SL) & liked adding the 'fu' this time thinking about kung-fu , I added 3 uuu's since 'celfuuu' had like only 3 'automated/random' hits in google when I first checked the name.
I was fiddling around with WebGL already, but I decided to make it more a web-tool now, a bit like the sculptypaint I once wrote. And I want to add more options/tools soon, when basic interface/web-stuff is working.
For me it is also important that it's cross-platform, (can) work on windows/mac/linux etc. Wrote some in-world tools for SL, but somehow porting it to other opensim grids would take a lot of time, but still want to support them. And making it in a browser opens it up for other 3D communities as well, 3D printing etc.
At the moment I`m using the three.js library to show the 3D models in WebGL, I wrote some of my custom WebGL routines before, but decided I should first focus more on my own 3D generation tools, and let three.js handle the more advanced WebGL coding , shaders-support etc. for the moment.
For every 10$ or 10€ in donations. I can spend 1 hour developing this software further.
Add more tools and options etc.
You can help/support me and keep the project going and growing bigger, so I can create and add more tools in the near future. You must know, I`m an independent artist, living below poverty level sometimes, and not some big mega-rich corporation. Besides that, I currently work part-time doing Social-Care, helping older people / handicap / sick people with there household, real greatfull work, but getting paid at minimum wage. (About 8€ an hour work, Netto)
Every month, a still get like 200+ downloads on my old sculptypaint, but only 1 in a thousand people, seems to donate 10+ cents as support. Making me sometimes think, why just not just pull it off-line/behind a paywall? Thinking, I would make more standing on the street singing/making music, then writing (free/os) software I guess. But, I give it another try with this project.
If you like the software, a little tip would be more then welcome, and would make such a difference for (open-source/Indi) software creators.
I love seeing work you created with my tools, send me a snapshot/image, one day. always love seeing that!
I'm still looking for flexible work (around Amsterdam), could be anything, from cleaning/washing dishes/walking the dogs/computer-support etc. so I can pay the rent/food. And keep this site on-line.
When around Amsterdam, buy me a beer, a nice glass of wine or some food/snacks ^-^. Love people/tourist to show around the city as well, love to walk around, the nicer areas, and discovering new places and streets. when the weather is nice
You can donate some L$ to 'Cel Edman' in second life, or buy some of my in-world mesh/sculpt creation tools there.
Check my shop on shapeways (and buy some of my 3D prints)
If you have any other nice suggestion or question, let me know.
Version history / Snapshots
[April 2, 2014] Celfuuu v1.8c
- little bugfix for chrome, to correct the mouse-position when editing the diameter shape.
[March 20, 2014] Celfuuu v1.7a
- little bugfix on shell layout.
- added some gearstep options in the 'Ring Twister' tool.
- added gearstep on Y in the 'Spiral Shells' tool, and tuned some of the other options.
X-Shell snapshot from Secondlife (g+)
[March 17, 2014] Celfuuu v1.6g released
- The 'Spiral shells' tool added, sometimes the model can glitch on certain settings, but I don't mind at the moment.
- Added Edit Ring Diameter button in the 'ring twister' tool , now you can customize that Diameter shape.
- Removed (temporary?) the link to url thing. (things will get more complicated in the future, when people can customize more things.)
- fixed little uv-layout bug for the top right square in the 'ring twister' tool
- Rounded the precision after the decimal point. so the .dae files will smaller and take less hd-space.
[March 17, 2014] the new shell tool (g+)
[March 13, 2014] customize the Ring Diameter (g+)
early test snapshot: You can customize the ring into other shapes now, before that it was always a circle.
[March 4, 2014] snapshot: .dae file exporter working (g+)
Getting the .dae exporter working. loading the model into blender and SecondLife
[February 26, 2014] - 1st snapshots getting my own custom meshes working in three.js (g+)
I figured out how to do these twisted rings in sculptypaint around July '2008 (and still sell those on the SL-marketplace) I must say I was the first one on the SL-grid to make these as far as I know, although seen others doing them as well later on, and also other people wrote software to make them. After a dream early in the morning feb26, I tried to do it this time in WebGL.
Don't have much experience with 3D printing yet, but found some links on the web, more tips welcome

Thanks to people to keep this project going on, donators, and people lifting up my spirit
special thanks to es0 Torok ^-^
and thanks to
Family, friends and artist, GJ-Mulder, people from the three.js library, SL tool/coders: TheBlack Box, Aminom Marvin (SL's true sculpty wizzard, that discovered so much new things), Yuzuru Jewell, Anjin Meili, Qarl 'Karl Stiefvater',and a lot of great people in SL / open-grids communities (and there support during the years), the LL-crew/Torley, Toxi, the people from processing.org, the offline-collective/hell.com, from the early #java irc-days; graphics coding & demoscene; Snowcrash/Keops/Roots etc. And many more..
Celfuuu uses the trackball controls from the three.js lib from Eberhard Graether
Celfuuu uses currently dat.gui for the interface buttons/sliders.
Celfuuu uses currently Filesaver.js by Eli Grey for the save button/filesaving.
I compressed parts of the source for celfuuu, to save bandwidth etc. if you have a question about the source as a developer, just let me know.
At the moment: I allow individuals/people to use/distribute/sell the 3D models created with Celfuuu in on-line virtual worlds/open-sim-grids at the moment. Feel free to print them out in 3D etc. For larger companies (more then 5 people) that want to use / distribute the 3D models generated by Celfuuu, it would be nice to contact me first. And/or talk about customisations & modified/more-unique work.
