So what’s that? A Mandelbulb?? Wikipedia explains it.
These two images were done with “Mandelbulber”, a nice piece of Open Source software. You can get it here. Another interesting link: Mandelbulb: The Unravelling of the Real 3D Mandelbrot Fractal.
3D sculpture rendered with Vue 6 Infinite. Click on the preview for the 2560×1600 version. A 1600×1200 render is available here. Original 3d model by Pilou.
I just discovered an exciting piece of 3D software: Groboto. At the moment I’m playin’ around with the demo version, and I’m really impressed. You can create amazing abstract structures with this program, be sure to visit the gallery at www.groboto.com. I really love abstract 3D models and can’t wait to get my full version next week. Below is a screenshot of the user interface (click for full size).
