Pythagorean Tree

Inspired by a design by Walter Janssens I decided to create a model of my own. The beautiful fractal “Pythagorean tree” brought to life. I printed a limited iterations model, but bigger iterations are possible. I have provided a openscad file which allows you to tweak the number of iterations, starting cube size etc.. Trivia: First constructed by Albert E. Bosman in 1942. It has been proven that the total surface area of a 2D Pythagorean tree is finite, by bounding so is the volume of this 3D pythagorean tree.”_
