# Mandelbulb3D Apollo dIFS Tutorial

## Deviation Actions

Well, I've seen you really enjoyed mine and most of you asked me for tutorial! Alright, here it comes. Be sure you do only amazing pieces with this!! ..
I hope you opened Mandelbulb3D... Now Let's start.. But it's not easy as it seems to be!
1. Click Fo.2 (2nd Slot) in Formulas window, and insert here Apollo2DIFS - It's located in last (3rd) dIFS collumn! (Under amazingIFS) And now input these values (These are just optional. Different formula can get affected by different rotation, PolyFold, etc.) and change Max. iterations from 60 to 10
Mul Z: 0.65 - 0.85
RotationX: -1.5 -1.9
RotationY: 5.9 6.4
RotationZ: 0 (keep unchanged)
Polyfold Order: 12-44 (determines number of petals of your future flower, this value range is recommended)
Global XY-Scale: 0,05 - 0.1
- 20
Now It's not easy to choose from formulas which decorates flower, or which makes these wonderful petals.... This is just about some simple type! Try experimenting further for putting more Apollos, or transforms for crazy, unussual and of course amazing variations!
2. In Fo.1 (1st Slot) Put the formula, which forms decoration! I prefer heartKluch, greekIFS, loxodromeIFS, or just heightmap or hexgrid,! It's all up to you. I put in 1st heartKluchIFS and leave it unchanged!
3. In Fo.3 (3rd Slot) Put (for example) CommaIFS (best for realistic blooms!) But unleash your creativity and use other formula! But you must be playful one and play with most sliders! Okay, So you've got in 3rd slot ComaaIFS! Not looking like bloom? Increase Iterationcount on '3'. Still not looking "bloomy"?!? Let's change the values!!!
R1: 1.275
Scale: 1.275
R2: 0.24
Apply Scale+Add: 1 (try switch that sometimes on 0)
R3: 1.175
R Sphere: 0.82
Flip X-Z, Flip Y-Z: 0
Signs: 0 (try experimenting with these! You may reach some real cool stuff!)

And We're done! It should look like this:

But as I said. It's up to you. Main role is playing Apollo here, other formulas helps make it look real! Hope you like this one and use well! Can't wait to see your blooms! Comment them if you come up with any nice finds!
Feel free to ask anything! I'm free to help! Hope you enjoyed, use well,
Lukas

All I got is a green heart. Checked and double checked.
At last a got a flower thanks to you: my very first flower with MDB3D
I'll upload when I feel better.
Thank you and thank you again for all this help I got from you, Lukas
Glad I could help. I hope you'll get well soon
Have a great day!
I don't find heartKluch
In the first dIFS collumn.
1-The first of dIFS collumn is boardIFS

2-Else yesterday I got

{Titel: Test}

but why those black points?
I meant it's located in that COLLUMN, not the first in it..
It's called heartKluchIFS but when you said heartKluch I didn't understand.
Else a very stunning tutorial: I wanted to make this flower since 10 years ago
Thank you so much Lukas
you have been featured here fav.me/d8x8wnl
Thank you most kindly
Thank you Lukas for sharing this....
You're welcome
Great work, Lukas !
For sure something which is worth to be tried out
Thank you very much! Hope you enjoyed!
Honestly I still need to go into the details. But the pictures look promising, and Apollo has much potential.
