QuaSZ (Quad Surface Zplot)





QuaSZ is an interactive program that is optimized to generate hi-res 3D fractal images. QuaSZ currently supports quaternion, hypercomplex, cubic Mandelbrot, complexified quaternion and octonion renderings of the Mandelbrot set and Julia sets.

Features of QuaSZ:

  • Getting Started Tutorial
  • 208 Built in Formulas + Hydra Formula set
  • 8 Mandelbulb 3D formulas (trig and non-trig sine and cosine versions)
  • User-defined quad algebra -- invent your own quad fractal type out of thousands of possibilities
  • Detailed parser information for creating your own custom formulas
  • External formula libraries [FLL]
  • 3D object exports:
    • Wavefront object format [OBJ]
    • Stereolithography [STL]
    • Triangle mesh [POV]
    • Smooth Triangle mesh [POV]
    • Mesh simplification for smaller OBJ and POV export files
    • Virtual reality [WRL]
    • AutoCad [DXF]
    • Polygon Format [PLY]
  • Palette-based and generalized (32-bit) coloring methods
  • Import options for loading parameter files from Cubics, PodME and Hydra
  • External rendering libraries [RLL] for elaborate surface texturing
  • Perlin noise generator for realistic textures
  • Adjustable lighting model with Phong highlights
  • Random image generators and random formula generator
  • Batch mode for unattended image creation
  • Integrated video routines allow easy morphing and rotating between key frames
  • AVI object options for exporting single frames as 3D object files
  • Pilot for easy panning, zooming and rotating
  • Separate user-defined folders for file types like palettes, textures, objects and drawings
  • Context help for menu commands and dialog windows as well as a complete list of topics in the main Windows help [Html] file
  • PDF (printable) Manual

A trial version of QuaSZ is available. This contains most of the features of the full version, except that the image size is limited to 320X240 and the precision of 3D object exports is fixed at 300 steps. The trial version is for evaluation purposes only. Click here for more info.
