Is it possible to create a Nautilus Shell (which is a natural fractal a.k.a. Phi Spiral) with Mandelbulb 3d current set of formulae?
If not would it be crass of me to ask for such a formula in MB3D format.. I am hopeless with such things, but the mathematical formula can be found here:


Thanks in advance for any help!

I am planning something ... But I should study in this period. Wait ... undecided
