ofxUI is an addon for openFrameworks (version 07) by Reza Ali that easily allows for the creation of user interfaces aka GUIs. ofxUI also takes care of widget layout, spacing, font loading, and widget callbacks. ofxUI can be easily customized (colors, font & widget sizes, padding, layout, etc).ofxUI is a GL based GUI and uses openFramework’s drawings calls to render its widgets. It integrates into openFrameworks projects very easily since it was designed specifically for OF. Just drag and drop the addon into your project, copy the GUI folder from an example project’s data folder into your data folder. The README in the ofxUI addon folder includes a step by step tutorial on how to use the library in your projects in under 10 minutes. There are many examples included in the download that show how to add widgets, customize their placement, get values from different types of widgets, set widget values, add callback functions for gui events, and more.
Created by Reza Ali, F3, [Form From Function], is a playful and powerful 3D design app that enables you to live code 3D form, rapidly iterate on its design, and export for 3D printing, rendering and animation. F3 uses signed distance functions (SDFs) to build forms – designing 3D forms using 2D image cross sections.
