Well... it's just a guess, but I'd be very surprised if you could get something like the structure you draw from a simple equation... There is a possibility to use the third dimension to parametrize the start value of Z. There are formulas like this in mmf.ufm for Ultrafractal. But you won't get anything like you draw... So unfortunately the (very nice, btw) intuitive generalisation you imagine is not the mathematical one. But maybe there is a trick I didn't see...

You should try asking this in the forum. Sometimes people like Kerry Mitchell peek in there.

Hello! Thanks for commenting... In search of an approximation i made these in "Processing" A transition from xmin to xmax, where y is ZERO : http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/41724431/ and, a try to do the 3D mandelbrot which i have drawn. Still lacks of 4 axxis symmetry and round bulbs: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/41724135/ :tresamie: Thank you for advice, i could post my question there, like i did also in other forums...

Hello, I'm current working 3D fractal renders. Heard you are used Processing to create Mandelbrot set, I wonder how to apply this example. Are there any good references for the 3D M-set?
