The Most Authoritative List Of Mandelbulb 3D Resources and Tutorials On The Internet!
If you want to unlock your skills as a fractal artist, then the MASTER TRAINING RESOURCE GUIDE is just what you need!
As with any skill you wish to master, training is critical. Creativity is a skill, and it can be improved over time. When you develop your creativity skills, you will find that it helps you in many aspects of your life.
The skills you will acquire by going through the Mandelbulb 3D Resources and Tutorial training listed below will propel you to the Master Level of Fractal Art creation! This collection of training tutorials could easily be sold for a few dollars per PDF, however, I provide it here free of charge so it can help the most people possible!
Here is an important tip for new users that may get a “missing formula” error.
The first thing you should do is to try downloading the Mandelbulb 3D Custom formulas & transforms from this link. Once you download the zip file, use it to overwrite your existing formulas.
Remember that if you get a formula “options not valid” error, it could also be because you are trying to mix formulas from the last three columns with those in the first 8 columns.
You can’t do that unless you select DE combinate as a hybrid type. You might be using a formula in the last column without using a shape formula from columns 9 and 10 along with it.
Another possibility is that you could be using a formula from the ads columns without also selecting another formula from 3d, 4d or 4da columns to go with it.
If you load a set of parameters and you get a missing formula error then you need to get the formula that is missing. Once you add it to your M3Formulas folder and restart the program it will no longer give you the missing formula error.

For Linux users, you can use the windows version through the wine application.
For Mac users, the wine option might work for you too, depending on which version of the OS you are using.
Benoit Mandelbrot was known as the father of the fractals, a concept he popularized in The Fractal Geometry of Nature in 1982.
Benoit B. Mandelbrot was a Polish-born, French and American mathematician with broad interests in the practical sciences, especially regarding what he labeled as “the art of roughness” of physical phenomena and “the uncontrolled element in life.” Wikipedia

Mandelbulb 3D Random Tips
If your image disappears while you are zooming in, then you can raise the ‘far plane' setting' at the lower left corner of the nav window. Some people don't realize you can use this in reverse as well. (Obviously) If the background of your image is too busy looking or you can't seem to make the background fade or fog up by using the depth slide in the ambient lighting, then you can lower the far plane setting in the nav window.
Every time you render an image the information about that image, the parameters, formulas, colors etc. is saved in the history folder. You can revisit this folder hours, days or even years later and open an image from the history folder and tweak it any way you want.
( The history of your renders will be saved from the first day you install Mandelbulb 3D. )
If you find, when you render the image that the finer edges look ragged, try lowering the raystep multiplier value. Try a value between 0.05 and 0.01 This would ordinarily increase your total render time. Since IFS renders require a low max iteration value – approximately 5 – this doesn't add to the total render time as much as it would for a non-IFS render.
If you are stuck, do this:
1) Select the ‘fixed zoom and steps' box by clicking on it.
If you want to ONLY zoom in or out, do the following:
2) Use the extra zoom buttons to navigate in or out, (buttons circled in green) NOT THE WALK CONTROLS!
If you want to cut further into your piece:
3) Use the walk buttons to cut into your piece.

Final Thoughts About Your Training!
If you are new to creating fractals, the guide above, with all those tutorials can seem overwhelming. I understand! But I encourage you to take your time and go through them methodically and as you do, your skills will improve.
You should also find someone that has better skills than yourself and study the fractals they create. Copy the parameters they share and plug them into your MB3D software and study the settings they use.
This method of study has helped hundreds if not thousands before you. It is a proven method that will produce results.
You might also start with these two formulas alone at first and later add them together in different combinations. Amazing Box and Menger3. Other formulas can be added to either of these to create really great images with some trial and error.
Remember that with any skill you wish to Master, practice is essential. You can not just sit down at the piano and play a song without first practicing and making mistakes.
You can not break anything while creating fractals. It is a learned skill that you can do.
As for me, my madness runs deep when thinking about helping others learn and enjoy the thrill of creating 3D Fractal Art. It’s Maniacal really!
My genuine hope is that The Master Training Resource Guide totally transforms your skillset. Now go, create Awesome Fractals for your own joy and pleasure as well as the amazement of your friends and family!
By the way, if you have written a tutorial, shared a collection of maps or created a parameter pack that is not listed here, please contact me and I will be happy to add it.
