Abstract

Trying to combine fractal geometry and solid modeling seems to be a contradiction in itself, In this paper a new type of 3D objects is presented that accomplishes this combination in a specific way. Objects with a fractal macro structure and a 3D solid micro structure can be specified and rendered efficiently by using context free, attribute, geometric grammars. This new object type can be incorporated into the CSG-modeling technique (Constructive Solid Geometry) in two ways: a) using CSG for the specification of the micro structure of the new object type, b) using these fractal like objects as a new type of primitive in the CSG model. Ray tracing is used for generating high quality images of these geometrically complex objects.
