Render intricate 3D Mandelbrot fractals or edit them with ease while working in a user-friendly and intuitive environment with accessible options

editor's review





A fractal is both a natural phenomenon or a mathematical set that exhibits as a repeating pattern that keeps proportions at any scale. One of the most popular ones, the Mandelbrot fractal is used to express the correlation between complex and real numbers. Although the representation of such a fractal is 2D, with the help of Mandelbulber, you can make it tridimensional.

This handy piece of software can help you render and generate detailed 3D Mandelbrot fractals called Mandelbulb, along with other similar sets, such as Mandelbox, Bulbbox, Juliabulb and Menger Sponge.

Reliable tool for rendering 3D fractals

The application allows you to create detailed three dimensional fractals of the Mandelbrot set, also known as Mandelbulbs. By rendering trigonometric, hypercomplex, mandelbox, IFS and many other 3D fractal models, the program offers you a quick and efficient way of navigating and examining these 3D sets.

Furthermore, each of the generated models is intricately build, as the program can display complex 3D ray-traced shading, such as hard shadows, ambient occlusion or depth of field.

Intuitive fractal renderer with tridimensional camera control

Mandelbulber gives you the possibility to explore any of the generated fractals in detail, using the mouse-controlled navigation camera. This gives you an in-depth view of every keyframe of your model.

On top of this, the program is especially designed to work with both x86 and x64 processors, with the sole difference that you have unlimited image resolution on 64-bit systems.

An overall powerful fractal generator

To sum it all up, Mandelbulber offers you an efficient and reliable way of rendering and visualizing 3D Mandelbrot fractals. Using complex generation algorithms, the application can help you understand and view how certain fractal sets occur, both in nature and in mathematics.
