With Chaos you can randomly distribute Points or Blocks using a sizeable 'Brush' in the drawing.
Chaos is an AutoCAD app, useful whenever you need to generate a large number of randomly and disorderly distributed entities, such as the representation of vegetation, the stone embossing, the stains on ancient walls.
this video show how it work:
Through the configuration command, CHAOCFG, it's possible to set the distribution modes of the elements by making CHAOS work as an 'Airbrush', typical tool of painting softwares.
these are the CHAOS configuration parameters :
- Number of items to be distributed within the brush area.
- Real-time drawing mode, if active draws the elements while carry the brush.
- Type of element to draw Point or Block.
- Size of the brush (rectangular area around the cursor).
- Randomize colors, if active, the elements will be drawn with the different colors listed in the 'Color List' list otherwise with the current color.
All parameter values can be stored in external files. In this way it is possible to reload them when needed.
on the bricks wall the random points give a particular effect to the 'spots'
unlike a pattern, the effect generated by CHAOS command can be calibrated until the desired result is obtained. Use the + and - keys to scale the size of the brush.
example of use in Real-Time mode, increasing the size of the brush with the + key while approaching the earth line.
Unzip chaos_EN.zip and copy files in a folder. Then, from AutoCAD, start APPLOAD command and load CHAOS.VLX.
Type CHAOS to start the command and, eventually, CHAOSCFG to set up parameters.
