Turtle Graphics Renderer

The Turtle Graphics Renderer is a simple online platform created by Kevin Roast that allows you to create L-Sytem (“turtle”) patterns. These graphics are recursive patterns characterized by self-similarity and hence fractal-like forms. Plant models and natural-looking organic forms ‘grow’ and become more complex by increasing the iteration level of the form. To create images, choose a sample image on the right side of the screen and change the mathematical parameters (e.g. angles) at the […]

Free fractal makers for download. The community members who discovered the Mandelbulb also developed two pieces of software for rendering images of it, and its family of complex, chaotic objects: Mandelbulber (Windows, Mac, Linux) and Mandelbulb 3D (Windows, Linux). According to the site, “Mandelbulber is an experimental application that helps to make rendering 3D Mandelbrot fractals much more accessible. A few of the supported 3D fractals: Mandelbulb, Mandelbox, BulbBox, JuliaBulb, Menger Sponge, Quaternion, Trigonometric, […]
