3d Fractals for real

For a while, I have been interested in 3d fractals.
Recent 3d printing technology development has allowed me to get some of these printed for real, and for relatively cheap.

Getting a file suitable to a 3d printer is a very complicated process.

Here is a picture of me at my home desk holding a SLS object of size 15 cm, printed by 3DProd for 269 euros.

On the desk is an older smaller object (the same that is on the screen), printed on a ZCorp printer.
