First Demo of the Mandelbulb in flash.

So I've put together a demo of the Voxel Renderer doing something - not entirely sure if it is the true Mandelbrot in 3d - but  click the image below to see the approach I'm taking -

Zoom in and you'll see how it's constructed from isometric cubes.


  1. Very cool! It is loaded slowly in Flash but actually that reminds me some very exciting moments in the 90's when I was playing with the (2D) Mandelbrot set.

    I am not in a position where I can confirm that what you are doing is indeed the 3D "Mandelbub". I do not know enough what you are doing nor enough of what the theory should be. Anyway it looks good! Good luck.

  2. Yeah it does load really slowly: and that ones only 300x300x300, I have optimized it a bit since that version though.

    I think I'm going to build up to work out the 3d one - Start where people were at a few years ago and then when I understand a bit more about hypercomplex number theory - try the Mandelbulb or maybe even something with the kind of complexity that the 2d one has (if there is one!)!
