Cubics DE

Cubics DE was written to take advantage of the new generation of 64-bit computers now on the market. Export models can be up to 10 million faces or more, unsimplified, limited only by the amount of system memory available.

Cubics DE runs only on 64-bit Windows.

Cubics is an interative program that graphs 3D slices of the cubic Mandelbrot formula z^3-3c^2z+s. This is a special type of Mandelbrot quaternion; which when rendered, a true 3D Mandelbrot fractal is achieved. Extensions are supported for 2-4 extra dimensions, and six alternate algebras are included besides the traditional cubic math. Nine alternate cubic Mandelbrot formulas are also provided to experiment with.

Features of Cubics DE:

  • Getting Started Tutorial
  • Distance Estimator for Higher Speed and Accuracy
  • 10 Built in cubic Mandelbrot Formulas
  • 3D quad exports:
    • Wavefront format [OBJ]
    • Lightflow mesh [LFM]
    • Virtual reality [WRL]
    • Triangle object [POV]
    • AutoCad [DXF]
  • Palette-based and generalized (32-bit) coloring methods
  • 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 rendering option
  • Batch mode for unattended image creation
  • Integrated video routines allow easy morphing and rotating between key frames
  • 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 Cubics DE is available. This contains most of the features of the full version, except that the maximum image size is limited to 320X320 and the precision of 3-D object exports is fixed at 1000 steps. The trial version is for evaluation purposes only. Click here for more info.
