Hi, I am Salai. 👋
I am a creative technologist from India, helping companies at the intersection of 3D, programming, and computer graphics through bespoke software development. I am particularly interested in Python, Blender, Three.js, GLTF, web development, and 3D graphics in general.
I have a wide range of experience in building CLIs, custom tools for viewing and manipulating 3D assets, 3D visualization, process automation, etc. and I am open to contracts
I find the writings and philosophies of people like David Heinemeier Hansson, Sahil Lavingia, Daniel Vasallo, and Naval Ravikant to be very intriguing. Their world view resonates with me and I truly believe in making small bets rather than grand plans.
I am a big fan of and a true believer in open-source. Blender was my introduction to the world of open-source and my life has changed in unexpected ways since then.
I love good food and I wander around city to find good stuff to eat. Let me know if you want list of must try items in Chennai! 😀
On a tangent, I have a hobby project called Wordly Origins where I discover and write about how certain words, phrases and expressions came to be.
I constantly expand my horizons through small experiments that challenge me with learning new tools, techniques or technologies, and I write about them on my blog.
You can find some of the open-source tools I have developed on GitHub. My personal favorites:
- Blender-FreeCAD Live Link add-on for Blender
- Zen3D for converting assets to GLTF
- Modifier Stack Manager add-on for Blender
- Webinar on Crafting AR Experiences Using Blender & Three.js for IEEE Students Board, Jeppiaar Engineering College, Chennai.
