The following projects were created using a combination of python code in Cutter and Maya 2018 with Arnold and Renderman.
For this project our class was introduced to the process of creating a Sierpinski Triangle using Python script. The Sierpinski triangle, also known as the Sierpinski gasket is a fractal that is constructed from taking a equilateral triangle and then subdividing that triangle into smaller equilateral triangles using the midpoint between each vertices.

Menger 3D Sponge
Below are a few experimentation I did with the Menger 3D Menger code. In addition, I constructed an environment out of the menger variations that I did. The environment references that of an underground crystal cave. However, the final end product was not what I had envisioned because unfortunately Maya could not handle an excessive amount of shapes. Whenever I tried to render the scene with Renderman, Maya would close the render view before it started rendering, so I had to delete many of the shapes I had put in the scene. Though it was not how I envisioned, I still am happy with the results.
