]]>Viewing the images on a big 3D TV, in all their glory, is priceless ;-)

]]>“Plotting the points that trend away from Z, using their rate of escape as a 3-D coordinate is something I’ve wanted to see for a long time, and I’ve always wondered why nobody was doing it.”

A couple of months ago I thought about this question and did it. I added the third dimension to the Mandelbrot Set (to its border, actually) based on two principles:

- The original Mandelbrot Set is a 2D photo of the “extended 3D set”.

- The more the iterations needed to know that diverge, the more the distance to a point from the observer. The Mandelbrot Set points are at infinite distance.

I developed an algorithm to calculate what each eye would see and created some 3D images: http://www.flickr.com/photos/in4ur. You have to download the images in original resolution (1920×1080) and view on a 3D TV in Side By Side mode. I’m also making a 3D video that will be finished in two weeks or so.

Mathematically, perhaps, there is nothing new, but visually… It’s worth a (3D) look.

]]>You can absolutely design objects in Haskell. It’s a more powerful interface than extopenscad. Most people are scared off by the word “Haskell” so I don’t advertise it much.

Import “Graphics.Implicit” into ghci and take a look. :) Sorry there isn’t a tutorial.

Sadly, I’ve been very focused on machine learning research for some time and haven’t worked on ImplicitCAD. The gcode generator works for hacklab’s laser cutter, but doesn’t support anyting else. It could be easily modified to support many 2D CNC devices.
