A Tree Made From Some Other Trees

I wrote a procedural fractal tree generator in OpenSCAD designed to produce something resembling douglas fir. To be honest, I’m impressed with how well I did, design-wise, but maybe I’ve been staring at it too long.

It’s probably hard to tell from the picture, but each and every branch is different, and they’re different on each of the six parts, too. No two pieces are exactly alike.

The printing is iffy on the smaller details. Lots of charring. Also my zooms and pews were off, so there’s a lot of scorching on the bottom, despite masking both top and bottom. The top surfaces look great, though.

Update: Here’s the tree decorated and safe in our cat proof vault.
