Usage

NPM

float sphere(vec3 position, float radius)

Returns the signed distanced between position and a sphere at the origin with a given radius. For example, to draw a sphere in a raytracing shader:

#pragma glslify: sphere require('glsl-sdf-sphere') 
 
vec2 doModel(vec3 p) {
  float id     = 1.0;
  float radius = 0.5;
  float dist   = sphere(p, radius);
 
  return vec2(dist, id);
}

Note that you can move the sphere around in this case by offsetting the position vector, for example:

uniform float iGlobalTime;
 
#pragma glslify: sphere require('glsl-sdf-sphere') 
 
vec2 doModel(vec3 p) {
  vec3 offset = vec3(sin(iGlobalTime), 00);
 
  float id     = 1.0;
  float radius = 0.5;
  float dist   = sphere(p - offset, radius);
 
  return vec2(dist, id);
}
