    Thumbs down Can one display Fractal images with lasers how does one limit points when using trace

    If I were to try to covert some type of fractal art as I have recently seen in a Nova episode and elsewhere . Does the nearly infinite number of points present a problem to display?

    At some point I guess the actual number of points are limited when converted to an ILDA frame?
    clicking on my avatar will show the tricolor photocoagulator resonator cavity from a Lumenis Varia eye surgery medical laser, which i am attempting to refit. It originally was designed to produce 50-1500mw of 532 / 50-600mw of 659nm / 50-600mw of 561nm (Yellow)
    Clicking on my Avatar will show a picture of the inside of this cavity with a 1cm bar diode in the first of 3 OEM postions & KTP holder.

    This is the first free software I ever got for a PC! I got this when my dad had a 286!

    It will generate "L-systems" that are really neat line drawings that should translate to laser art pretty well.

    Like any other kind of laser image, it's only going to be a reasonable approximation of the real drawing and too much detail just wont look good.
