    Stratne-3Dprint-fractal-fluid-path

    Using fractals to design complex shapes Fractals Intro Fractals are geometric patterns that repeat at different scales. They exhibit the property of “self-similarity”. Fractals appear complex in shape. But they are just iterations of simple geometries in a pattern. Consider an equilateral triangle, inscribe another equilateral triangle within and continue doing this. You will end up…
