Universal Idea

Mandelbulber creatively generates three-dimensional fractals.

Explore trigonometric, hyper-complex, Mandelbox, IFS, and many other 3D fractals.

Render with a great palette of customizable materials to create stunning images and videos.

The possibilities are literally infinite!

Building and Deploying

Download the latest stable version from Releases or clone git repository for actual development version.

After downloading, unpack the file and follow our instructions from the README file. Please see additional information in mandelbulber2/deploy folder.

Easy Preparation for Development

The software is natively developed using Qt Creator for Linux (Debian or Ubuntu).

The file mandelbulber2/qmake/mandelbulber.pro specifies the build system configuration for Qt Creator. To be able to compile the program, the host operating system requires preparation:

Use the following scripts to prepare your Linux environment for development. These scripts install all dependencies, compile the program, and create symbolic links in /usr/share/mandelbulber to your working directory.

Prepare Debian for Development

Prepare Ubuntu for Development

Arch Linux AUR Package (Current release)

Arch Linux AUR Package (Current git snapshot)

In addition, there exists an MSVC Solution located in this git package. The solution accommodates all dependencies with NUGET for autonomous compilation of OpenCL accelerated binary.

The system requires the QT5 framework in conjunction with LZO for real-time data compression and GSL for scientific resources.
