Hour Re-Powered

Pre-previously on Overlord in terms of the Über-Feral, I looked at my favorite member of the fractal community, the Hourglass Fractal:

As I described how I discovered the hourglass fractal indirectly and by accident, then showed how to create it directly, using two isosceles triangles set apex-to-apex in the form of an hourglass:

Triangles to hourglass #1


Triangles to hourglass #2


Triangles to hourglass #3


Triangles to hourglass #4


Triangles to hourglass #5


Triangles to hourglass #6

[…]

Triangles to hourglass #10


Triangles to hourglass #11


Triangles to hourglass #12

Now, here’s an even simpler way to create the hourglass fractal, starting with a single vertical line:

Line to hourglass #1


Line to hourglass #2


Line to hourglass #3


Line to hourglass #4


Line to hourglass #5


Line to hourglass #6


Line to hourglass #7


Line to hourglass #8


Line to hourglass #9


Line to hourglass #10


Line to hourglass #11
