What I learned of Structure Synth for now
As part of my "learnstuff" project, reporting my Structure Synth experiences. Please don´t follow this as a tutorial since I am still a complete Structure Synth dummy :dummy:
My study was inspired by amazing works by Pasternak

STEP 1: Basic tutorial
http://structuresynth.sourceforge.net/learn.php
A short tutorial explaining the basics of the software, such as shapes, rules and transformations. At this point, I was able to create a nice little box. Even 3 boxes :la:
//Creates a huge grey box to work as base for the fractal.
//Not really needed but whatever :dummy:
{z -0.1 s 5 5 0.1 color grey}box
//those 2 commands create the small red boxes
{x 0.25 y 0.25 s 0.48 0.48 0.1}box
{x -0.25 y 0.25 s 0.48 0.48 0.1}box

Here they are =D

STEP 2: Creating rules
While the boxes are pretty neat and I was very

Learning Structure Synth
A bit more of my Structure Synth learning progress.
Step 6: L-Systems

A quick math break: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L-system
This is basically what Structure Synth does. Many fractal things can be described using L-systems, so it is a great source of ideas.
As a quick practice, I implemented the Koch Curve, with small edits.

#define sc 0.33333333
r1
rule r1 md 10{
{x -1 y 0 s sc} r1
{x -0.5 y 0.5 rz 90 s sc} r1
{x 0 y 1 s  sc} r1
{x 0.5 y 0.5 rz -90 s  sc } r1
{x 1 y 0 s  sc} r1
base }
rule base {{ s 3 0.1 0.3}box}
Here, i used #define to set a scale, so I don't need to type 0.33333... every time I scale down. Just by playing with scales and setting different scales for each dimension, I got a bunch of cool variants, such as:

Or, lets sa

Building a tower in Structure Synth
Just some previews I rendered while I was making it =)
Preview 1

The very first tower version. Tried adding windows, but it looked like poo and so I moved on.

Preview 2

Changed the base to be 3x3 and added some scaling down as the tower grows.

Preview 3

Now, there are 3 different wall types: a 4x4, a 3x3 and a 2x2. They interchange randomly (although here come pretty much in sequence). It was a major pain to implement, and I still feel smart for figuring it out.

Preview 4
The major change here is that now tower has both scaled down and scaled up levels, so, as it grows, it can get either thinner or wider. Also, added a bunch of small details.

Preview 4
Removed some of the details to make the generati

I love all types of art, but most enjoy visionary paintings, fractal art, and other psychedelic art forms...personally I have just begun experimenting with Mandelbulb 3D and creating 3D fractals :)
