Lately I've been attempting to build some realistic-
trees out of our Lego collection. Coming up with sturdy
to have organic angles and limbs out of plane is always a
of a challenge as we AFOLs know. It would be nice to
few Lego bits that are fractal-ish in basic
as simple as a V-branch upon which you can place more
branches until you run out of space.
Some Mandelbrot leaves would be nice. Mold design
be simple. Just have the machine pull in a one and a
needed to build self similar patterns at various scales [kdf, Aug 31 2020]
and going the other way... [kdf, Aug 31 2020]

||I love both lego and fractals +1
||Be interesting to see if there was more or less foot injury
potential with these. [+]
||My granddaughter is the Queen of all that is Lego. She builds
shit faster than anyone I've ever seen. She is also the fastest
and most patient puzzle completer. Bigger the better.
||Anyway, I'll stop with the bragging and just say this, she would
love to be able to make a forest. I'm so very sure. So +++++
||If you're going to build fractals - self similar patterns at
varying scales - you'll need pieces built at different scales.
But how to you get the nubs of different sized pieces to snap
||Reminds me of Penrose tiles.
||See Anton Bakker's fractal tree piece in link.
