The Algorithm for 3D Lotus Construction Based on Fractal

Part of the Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 169)


This paper gave the flower structure patterns on the observation and statistic. It provided computer simulation based on plant morphology and the principles of fractal graphics technology. The longitudinal curve of the petals is self-similarity. According to the results of observation and a lot of mathematical experiments, the author gave the 3D IFS code of lotus. The method generates the 3D petals and 3D flowers based on a second curve. The simulation result of the flowers is more realistic.
