I’ve been meaning to do this for a long time: create the simplest possible genetic fractal based on a binary string. Let me explain. The nice looking fractals I post here and elsewhere are all driven by a genetic sequence. This goes something like: bend to the left by so much
After 9 nine months of building the Genetic CNC router in 3 generations, I have finally produced the first non-test cut. A couple of speakers for my workshop to enjoy Spotify when the CNC router isn’t destroying my ears.
Previous article: Accessory functions Next article: Going for 3D In the first 3 posts on this subject, we implemented the creation equation, added branching and dressed the resulting L-system fractals with color and width. Lovely. These fractals all have binary branchings, i.e. whenever a branch splits,
Previous article: Implementing the Genetic Equation Next article: Accessory functions In the last post on 2D genetic fractals, we introduced the Genetic Equation without branches and saw that using the driver functions we generate any path that we want. The Excel example was useful for messing around with the driver functions. But for branches, in particular…
One of the main motivations in developing genetic fractals is in their use in systems. A fractal is a peculiar object that branches infinitely many times whilst it is still contained within a boundary. Each of the branches is connected with a root and with each other,
