Fractal 3D is a powerful yet easy to use Mac OS X tool for generating and exploring fractals, such as the Mandelbrot and Julia sets.
The 2D view allows for easy surveying and customization, while the 3D view captures spectacular images that can be exported at up to 16 megapixel resolution.
Multi-processor support and an OpenGL powered renderer allow for blazing fast speed. With double precision 64-bit mathematics, Fractal 3D is capable of resolving detailed images up to an incredible 1,000,000,000,000x magnification level!
To give perspective, a single atom of carbon magnified one trillion times would be longer than two football fields. Each fractal is fully customizable and changes happening in real time.
First adjust the fractal set type, equation power/ constants, iterations, resolution, color scheme, and smoothing options. Once the fractal is rendered it can be explored with intuitive panning and zooming controls.
After a place of interest is found, customize the 3D view by rotating the fractal, moving the camera, and adjusting the lighting. Due to the nature of fractals, the number of unique patterns to be found is limitless.
Use the rendered images for desktop wallpaper, printed artwork, or just enjoy the beauty of exploring one of a kind images created by pure mathematics.
NOTE: To buy Fractal 3D via the App Store an Apple account is required.
