Our honored Master Yoda from thin instances

Hey guys!

Many of you already know that I am obsessed with thin instances. I’ve created a 2D to thin instances PG already. If you already saw it, just skip this link or enjoy it one more time :joystick: https://playground.babylonjs.com/#W3JRUJ#25

It’s so cool because of the genius image choosen by @Necips :vulcan_salute: and the associated thread can be found here: HTMLCanvas to Thin Instances

Now I’ve added another dimension to the algorithm and created this: https://playground.babylonjs.com/#EZSR9B#36

Guys, I am going to create another topic in the evening (I am going to write Azure APIs for the rest of the day now :clown_face:). The topic will containt a link to a PG, where I will show you exactly how did I achieve this and how easily is it possible to turn ANY 3D mesh to cool cube based (or any prefab) thin instance model and some models are also coming, such as the famous Star Destroyer, a First Order Tie fighter, a Sith Temple, thin instances Force Field… I will also share my ideas how to improve this. So if you want to try your models and/or change the code, there is a commented version coming. So just wait for it.

I didn’t have time to test the PG on multiple machines, hopefully the framerate will be high enough for everyone.


What are your thoughts?



This is insane lol… So I definitely love it :slight_smile:
