Ars Electronica SPAXELS® Show Design Tool for Autodesk 3ds Max®

A SPAXELS show typically contains two types of show elements: dynamic animations & static meshes. Those are designed in Autodesk 3ds Max® by a show designer.




In the next step the paths of the drones between different show elements have to be computed. To guarantee safety each trajectory has to be checked for collisions which is challenging with 100 drones and becomes an impossible task with 1000 drones and more.



In the past the process of generating collision-free paths was a tedious and time-consuming process. With the Spaxels Show Design Tool this has become very simple. It reduces efforts for design process by 70%. Now a show designer can focus fully on the aesthetics of a drone show and does not have to worry about path-planning anymore.



Collision-free shows: simply add show elements to your show. SPAXELS Show Design Tool will automatically check your show elements for collisions and ensures that the generated paths are safe to fly. Additionally, SPAXELS Show Design Tool optimizes your show so you can fly more exciting formations.
