But the real question becomes, is a missing OP a 0-dimensional fractal?

Of course, a fractal is a shape with fractional (Hausdorff, IIRC) dimension. So if it’s 3-dimensional, it ain’t a fractal.

Maybe you’ve just answered the OP…

I use cloud and noise textures in 3D space at work that can look like ‘3D’ fractals when the camera moves or geometry swims through them.

I’ve called them fractals before - Perhaps the OP was referring to them.

What the OP probably had in mind was structures that have a dimension between two and three.

You’ve got a point there, **ftg**.

I’ll close this and invite **CuriousCanuck** to repost. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Damn… I didn’t realize that it posted blank. OK… here was my question: I am curious…

I was reading on a physics site that a 3 dimensional fractal has a Zero volume. How can this be? And while we are on the subject, what is meant when it is said that a 3D fractal really is not 3d, it is more like 2.5d.

Physicists?
