Looks great are these photos? -In that case, great work getting them printed that perfectly!

No it is digital rendering, but the 3D model is really clean, you can see the holes are perfect square www.shapeways.com/model/143734…
I do not print it now, but i will do that soon

Yes, I see that, I am impressed by that! :) ...and I saw your discussion with bib, interesting! 
Problem is when you have both organic shapes with thin walls and geometric sharp edges in the same fractal...

I hope the developers of the software will think about us in the future version of the prog and add some new options to have a better accuracy and maybe adding some filters for the slices rendering.

I hope Jesse will be able to add color to the voxelslices too.
(It was me who asked him for the voxel export once) :)

I thing it is impossible to add colors to voxel slices, and colors will be not recognise by Fiji, to export colors with an object the mesh format must be VRML2.

Hmmm, I KNOW someone who made a printable object from colored voxelslices a long time ago, but he must have used some other app to convert themI will try to get in contact and hear how he did it...
It is the mandelbulb to the left in this image www.fractalforums.com/index.ph… (colored sandstone...)

I remember the voxels, they were black and white as usual, but the border between the black and white were colored...

So it IS possible! :)

I look to the picture in the link, yes it is a colored 3D print, i have also uploaded a colored mesh to Shapeways and it must a VRML2 format, to do this i use C4D to add the texture to the mesh and exported the file in VRML2.
VRML2 file create a link to the texture, the process is explain here  www.shapeways.com/tutorials/ex…
I have removed my colored mesh from Shapeways, but i will upload a new one soon to show you the result
Fiji image create only OBJ file wich not include textures image

There's something very appealing about this.  I like the simple shapes and colours.

Basic shapes have more eyes catching sometimes and added with primary color it's work well  :)

Amazing forms love the look, almost like a line of fine learning toy/shapes for children
