### Cogwheel brush

I thought I share a cogwheel shader brush for those that are interested.

\$this->bbcode_second_pass_code('', '
// From: http://mercury.sexy/hg_sdf/
float mod1(inout float p, float size) {
float halfsize = size*0.5;
float c = floor((p + halfsize)/size);
p = mod(p + halfsize, size) - halfsize;
return c;
}

float2 toPolar(float2 p) {
return float2(length(p), atan2(p.y, p.x));
}

float2 toRect(float2 p) {
return float2(p.x*cos(p.y), p.x*sin(p.y));
}

// From: http://www.iquilezles.org/www/articles/distfunctions2d/distfunctions2d.htm
float unevenCapsule(float2 p, float r1, float r2, float h) {
p.x = abs(p.x);
float b = (r1-r2)/h;
float a = sqrt(1.0-b*b);
float k = dot(p,float2(-b,a));
if(k < 0.0) return length(p) - r1;
if(k > a*h) return length(p-float2(0.0,h)) - r2;
return dot(p, float2(a,b)) - r1;
}

float circle(float2 p, float r) {
return length(p) - r;
}

// From: http://www.iquilezles.org/www/articles/smin/smin.htm
float softMin(float a, float b, float k)
{
float h = clamp(0.5+0.5*(b-a)/k, 0.0, 1.0);
return lerp(b, a, h) - k*h*(1.0-h);
}

float cogwheel(float2 p, float time) {
float pi = 3.141592654;
float tau = 2.0*pi;

float scale = 2000.0;
float embeddedOffset = 0.15*scale;
float smooth = 0.0375*scale;

float2 pp = toPolar(p);
pp.y += time*2 + tau/32.0;
float2 cpp = pp;
mod1(cpp.y, tau/16.0);
cpp.y += PI/2.0;
float2 cp = toRect(cpp);
float dcw = softMin(ds, dc, smooth);
// float dcw = min(ds, dc);
float2 ipp = pp;
mod1(ipp.y, tau/6.0);
float2 ip = toRect(ipp);
float dic2 = circle(ip - float2(embeddedOffset, 0.0), embeddedRadius);
float di = min(dic, dic2);
return max(dcw, -di);
}

float df(float2 p, float time)
{
float d =cogwheel(p, time);

d = abs(d) - 5.0;

return d;
}

float4 main(idatas i)
{
float fuzzy = 1.0;

float d = df(i.pos - i.strokePos, 0.01*i.nbUserStroke);

float s = smoothstep(-fuzzy, fuzzy, d);
float4 b = float4(0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0);
float4 col = lerp(i.color, b, s);
return col;
}
')

### Re: Cogwheel brush

I'm really happy that someone start to use the BSL seriously
Anyway you code produce nothing here. Can you share the .bkbrush ? ( I don't have time now to debug the thing myself now )

Hi.

I am unsure what a .bkbrush is? I am quite new to Black Ink so I might have failed to implement the brush in a portable way. You know what they say, works on my machine.

### Re: Cogwheel brush

Took me some time to figure out how to create a user brush but I think I succeeded now. Share using dropbox link:
