Meta-balls

Meta Balls are computer generated graphics where 3-D Geometric shapes (spheres) become like organic shapes, that happens when these shapes come close to each other. the two main factors affect the meta-ball creation, the first is the finite support; which concern with the maximum distance between the two objects where the algorithm work, and the second is the smoothness where the algorithm impact the iso-surfaces smoothness.

Experiment

What we are trying to do is that building a system that generate an organic connection between a group of spheres connected populated in a 3-D space, then we will try the same system with the interactive versions we had create using the self body gravity force by scripting environments.
