Structure Synth is an application for creating complex three-dimensional structures using simple rule sets. Using a few line of code, with statements condensed to a few characters, iterated multiforms can be generated consisting of thousands of individual objects. Developed by Mikael Hvidtfeldt Christensen, this free software is a direct attempt to produce a 3d version of Context Free..

    This reminds me of Greebles and Nurnies from CG 3D object (usually spaceship) creation. It also looks like a lot of fun. I hope they include some sort of export feature so the creations can be used elsewhere.

    Really nice job, mix a piece of math with a lot of C++ and you get very unusual image synthesis. For more artificial photos from another engine (Raydiant engine) see:
