Some of you may or may not know about Geometer's sketchpad so I will introduce it here.  It is mostly used for general [euclidean] Geometry, but it can be applied to make simple fractal patterns.  It is how I started making fractals, and I still use it during my lunch break.

Here is a link to the main site:
http://www.dynamicgeometry.com/

Unfortunately it is not a freeware program so it does cost a pretty penny.  I myself only have access to it at school.  I will post a few of my images tomorrow because it doesn't save images as jpgs.  I will also post a little something I found recently. whistling and rolling eyes

I converted all of my images to jpgs today so here is a small sample:

















I made many of these with a common initiator shape, which is the point of this post.  I call it the dragon box.  In stead of finding new initiators to construct different dragons, I just use this box, which should include most of the dragons' initiators.  I was wondering if this could be extended through three dimensions to create 3D dragon fractals, does anyone know any methods for doing such a thing?



This is a very rudimentary program for creating fractals, but it is fun to mess with. smiley

P.S. Do you like my muffin fractal? smiley

My favorite "hand drawn" fractal, and especially the one that brought me to this forum: http://www.fractalforums.com/meet-and-greet/have-you-seen-this-fractal/msg6070/#msg6070

But I wouldn't try to eat your spiky muffin! smiley

Wow, you really drew that by hand!  Yes as was said in the link to your picture, it is a Levy dragon.  All of the fractals in Geo Sketchpad have that hand-drawn quality to them.

In fact I really drew it by hand on a wall in a friends room 15 years ago, but it's been painted over. It was 1 meter big. I don't remember the number of iterations, maybe 7 or 8, so the final bits were really small, less than 0,5 cm. It took me maybe 20 hours or more. I was young and stupid, but I had found a method to draw it very easily, it was really automatic for me smiley

Google Sketchup may be useful to you.

May a trochoid of ¥h¶h iteratively entrain your Logos Response transforming into iridescent fractals of orgasmic delight and joy, with kindness, peace and gratitude at all scales within your experience. I beg of you to enrich others as you have been enriched, in vorticose pulsations of extravagance!

I think Bib was born out of fractal conception.  cheesy
I hope that wasn't offensive; I meant it as a compliment. angel
