Fractal space. Algorithmic curiousities.
L Systems are an algorithmic grammar that is used in several applications. They are fractals, making tree like patterns that are used all over the design industry.
I wanted to see how these branches would feel in a 3D printed textile. I later adapted this code to make a necklace.
I visualized them in Processing and experimented with several parameters. I then converted this to an SVG file and used Rhino to scale and make it more structually sound. I printed it as a textile swatch on a Formlabs printer in Flexible resin. The textile has various bend tolerances depending on branch density.
