Red Flake by bib993 Red Flake by bib993
See it spinning around: [link]

This is a physical object, not a render! Fractal made in Mandelbulb3D -> voxel transformed into mesh in Fiji -> optimized in Meshlab -> repaired in Netfabb -> 3D printed at Shapeways in white polyamide -> painted with 3 coats of Humbrol enamel. Get your own copy! => [link]

Thanks for the favs!

well, both hexaspheres are really lovely, they look like a mixture between limestone formations ([link], [link]) and crochet lace ([link]).

then again, the fractal flakes - both the red and the hyper - are super interesting to look at because they're in fact organic-looking cubes, which is intriguing because people rarely think of cubes as something organic.

and speaking of cubes, the Mystic HyperMenger is a lovely play between a tangible cube and a whole lot of intangible "invisible" spheres that are interlacing inside of the cube.

but those are simpler-looking. even if they're elegant, if given the choice, i'd rather have something more challenging. so ultimately, i am in love with the Cathedral [link] and the Coral [link].
They're both more complex and interesting in my opinion, and i'm calling the Bulb a Coral, because i used to have the skeleton of one at home and it looked so much like your fractal sculpture (before you applied the paint)! And... am i mistaken or does it partially use a formula that is used to simulate the structure of broccoli?

And the little cathedral... i'm totally enchanted by it, it's still got that limestone feel i was talking about earlier but then it's an urban element, and a complex one at that. Organic-looking church - a praise to nature. :)

so i guess if i were to choose, it would be the Cathedral. if i could choose two, i'd also take the Coral.

sorry for the long comment but i really like this idea of printing fractals! the past weekend i was at the Week of Design at Milan, and there were 3d-printed items... but nothing i hadn't seen before. and this, this is marvelous and new to me. :)

Thanks so much Jenny for taking the time to write this comprehensive feedback. The red flake doesn't exist anymore in this shape, I have finished to paint it, adding some varnish mixed with black paint to give a "used" finish, and then adding gold paint on all egdes, now it looks like some sort of Chinese abstract dragon :) I should take a photo one of these days! The cathedral is a good choice too, and as to the one you call "coral", I have also painted it ([link]) and I will probably order one more because I have other color schemes in mind. If you can't afford one, which I can understand, please support by sharing the links! Thanks :)
