I guess it is time to get a new GPU ... the shader runs at 4fps on my poor laptop https://www.shadertoy.com/view/WsSBzh (640x360p)

ah man this really evokes some possibilities for me in terms of user interfaces... there are so few primitive functions being used for this model... it really seems like some live feedback, a command palette, and a really good selection mechanism could go a tremendously long way in making the creation of models like this feel as fluid as the video storytelling

btw, Dreams, Clayxels, Unbound and a few other libraries, games and tools use SDF modeling as their core primitive

so there are plenty of examples of complex UI for signed distance field modeling
oh Adobe Medium as well

Zach Tellman has used SDFs to render a million characters on a text editor here:

(it starts at 16:50 if anyone else was confused) Great little talk.
Different but similar technique here I think: http://wdobbie.com/warandpeace/

yep, they’re using bézier curves up close and a font atlas when far away: http://wdobbie.com/post/war-and-peace-and-webgl/
