Dragon Curve Fractal in GoogleSketchUp

The dragon curve (also called the Heighway Dragon fractal) is a self-similar fractal which you can create rather easily in SketchUp starting with just a single line. It looks a lot more complicated to create than it actually is.

This project will work in any version of SketchUp, including SketchUp 8.

For this project, it helps to have some basic knowledge of Google SketchUp (though detailed instructions are provided). In particular, it’s important to know how to zoom and pan the view. If you need more information on how to get started, and a description of some basic tools, please read 3DVinci’s Getting Started Guide (PDF):
