Hello people! Nice to meet you there! Hope you'll enjoy! :la:
I got truly inspired by :iconbatjorge:'s  Mechanical Spheres by batjorge Mechanical spheres and also by :icontheli-at: :la:, then tried on my own, and liek why not? They're awesome! :la: Who wouldn't like them?

 Let's begin!!! :dummy:

Open Mandelbulb3D! (So exciting already :la:) and follow my steps!
1. As first formula pick _Fold45single and leave it unchanged (you can try experiment after all things done then)
2. 2nd formula MUST be Amazing Box and input these values:

Scale: 1

Min R: 0.0

Fold: 0.5

Iterations: 20 - 35

Still not anything magical!
3. The third formula wll affect the shapes and varies of these spheres! You can use whatever you want, experiment, but there for inspiration i use koch_cube and left it unchanged for now.
4. next formulas is going to be again _AmazingBoxSSE2 (or Amazing Box) but i prefer first one, and put these values (they're optional):

Scale: 3.0 - 3.5

Min R: 0.5

Fold: 1.0 - 2.0

Iterations: 5 - 10

Now Is time to turn Julia on choose values, which fits your spheres!

X: 0,005 - 0.2
Y: 0.05 - -0.25
Z: -6.5 - -8.5
You can try removing and replacing the box for brand new varies of spheres and fractals! Let me show you some example i made: Heavy Metal Spikes by LukasFractalizator Main Paras~ by LukasFractalizator  2 by LukasFractalizator These are only examples! I bet you can do way better! See you next time,

I need help with one of the steps, when I use the _AmazingBox formula, I don't have the fold value, and for some reason _AmazingBoxSSE2 doesn't work.:/
LukasFractalizator's avatar
In which step? For basical, I included these: 1. _Fold45Single, 2. Amazing Box (no _AmazingBox or _AmazingBoxSSE2), 3. your optional or koch formula and last mostly has to be 4. _AmazingBoxSSE3
Sorry if this not solves your problem, because you didn't specify it correctly.

Okay, got it, thanks.:) One other thing, I've noticed the fractal is really noisy, especially with the ambient shadows. How do I remove all of the grain? Sorry, noob questions.:(

Try lowering Raystep and stepwigth. (About to 0.1 - 0.05, just low as your rendering efforts)

Got it, thanks.
