Hybrid 3D Fractals

A lot of great images have been made of the Mandelbulb, the Mandelbox, and the various kaleidoscopic IFS’s (the non-platonic non-solids). And it turns out that by combining these formulas (and stirring a few assorted functions into the mix), a variety of new, amazing, and surprising forms emerge.

I’m currently working on making it easier to combine different formulas in Fragmentarium – but until I get something released, here is a collection of images and movies created by Mandelbulb 3D (Windows, free) and Mandelbulber (Windows, free, open-source), that illustrates the beauty and diversity of these hybrid systems. Be sure to view the large versions by following the links. The images were all found at Fractal Forums.
