Well... I see both Aexion and Garth Thornton online now, so that's 3 people who've implemented mesh export... maybe we can get some more opinions?

Of course a triangular mesh of a fractal dust would be huge at any useful resolution. In practice meshes are always a compromise, especially for fractals with uniformly rough surfaces because there's not much scope for mesh simplification. Point cloud export would be more efficient for the 3D Cantor set, and the size is not constrained by memory. However, 100 million points (the current limit in XD point cloud export) is still only 464^3. You can do really cool animations with such point clouds in 3DS Max with Krakatoa or Realflow. However, for high resolution, export is a long way from competing with direct rendering (except for 3D printing, where it's currently ahead.)

Regards, Garth
