3D Fractals

Image

I wanted to find some why of converting textual information into 3-dimensional objects. ‘Fractals’ use numeric values to create repeating shapes.

There are lots of fractal generating programs, but I struggled to find one which could make the right kind of file to be printed with a 3D printer. The idea was to convert text into numbers which would create the shape, and then print out the resulting sculpture in an attempt to transmute language into an object.

Here are some sites and examples of this:
