Apophysis 3D Blooms Tutorial by lindelokse Apophysis 3D Blooms Tutorial by lindelokse
I've received a huge number of requests in these latest months so here is the 3d version of my 2d Apophysis Blooms Tutorial :dance: this is my contribution (hopefully not the only one ;) ) to #projecteducate fractal week!!!
I tried to keep it the easiest I could and avoid xaos and such... but please mind that a basic knowledge of Apophysis is required. If you need some beginners' tutorial to get more familiar with the program or if you have a generic question about Apophysis, please send me a note, pay a visit to the #Aposhack chatroom or check these FAQ before ;)

I would like to thank and credit some friends who greatly helped me:
~muzucya for inspiring me with his lovely flame TSUKUYOMIBANA yokogaio
`Xyrus02 and ~zy0rg for helping me to refine my 3d blooms and fixing my mistakes
*DothackersDaichi =fractal2cry =ChaosFissure ~Wi6791lly and `FarDareisMai for beta-testing the tutorial

:bulletred: yes, you can publish it on your website as long as you don't edit the original jpeg and credit is provided to me :)
:bulletred: yes, I usually give permission to translate it in your language, just please let me know where you publish it so that I can check if credits to me are provided, and it would be great if you could send to me a preview before :)
:bulletred: no, I'd really prefer if you don't publish scripts based on this tutorial. If you really want to, then please ASK ME BEFORE :please:

All that you need:
:bulletred: Apophysis 7x by `Xyrus02
:bulletred: in the Aposhack Plugin Pack you will find all the plugins you need. Just don't put all plugins in your plugins folder at once, or apophysis will crash ;)
:bulletred: my 2d Apophysis Blooms Tutorial (which you may want to try before this one :) )

UPDATE: in Apophysis 7X version 15C, you will have to add flatten=1 to transform1, or nothing will appear!

HAVE FUN :squee:!!!

I think you will get of lot of feedback for this and never read my comment. But just wanted to inform you that I have created the possiblity to create solid objects (in real) of those, here is an example:…
(Materials shown are steel, plastic and sandstone)

many thanks for this :hug:! they look really nice!
are you able to print any 3d shape from flame parameters?
thargor6 Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2014
There is still trial-and-error involved, but from the theoretical point of view you could create a 3D-model of most flames with my software.
But there are certain "real-world-parameters" like thickness of walls, distribution of holes, material, size, etc. which prevent most of them from 3d-printing. 
The flame should resemble some "solid" (and sharp) shape in order to get good results. But there is still an unlimited number of possibilities :-)
And it is great fun to have it finally on your table. I think the fun is even greater than in the case of Mandelbuld3D-params because flame-fractals are usually constructed from scratch, the MB3D-shapes are more found by trial and error (IMHO). So it is actually creating something real cool from scratch :-)
