Rendering 3D fractals without a distance estimator | Syntopia

Rendering 3D fractals without a distance estimator | Syntopia | Fractal Advanced | Scoop.it

I have written a lot about distance estimated 3D fractals, and while Distance Estimation is a fast and elegant technique, it is not always possible to derive a distance estimate for a particular system.

During the last two years, the 3D fractal field has undergone a small revolution: theMandelbulb (2009), the Mandelbox (2010), The Kaleidoscopic IFS’s (2010), and a myriad of equally or even more interesting hybrid systems, such as Spudsville (2010) or theKleinian systems (2011).

All of these systems were made possible using a technique known as Distance Estimation and they all originate from the Fractal Forums community.
