paraview.simple.Mandelbrot(*input, **params)
Mandelbrot source can be used to add a uniform rectilinear grid with scalar values derived from the Mandelbrot set to the 3D scene. The equation used is z = z^2 + C (where z and C are complex, and C is a constant). The scalar values in the grid are the number of iterations of the equation it takes for the magnitude of the value to become greater than 2. In the equation, the initial value of z is 0. By default, the real component of C is mapped onto the X axis; the imaginary component of C is mapped onto the Y axis; and the imaginary component of the initial value is mapped onto the Z axis. If a two-dimensional extent is specified, the resulting image will be displayed. If a three-dimensional extent is used, then the bounding box of the volume will be displayed. The output of the Mandelbrot source is image (uniform rectilinear) data.

Data Descriptors

The value of this property specifies the limit on computational iterations (i.e., the maximum number of iterations to perform to determine if the value will go above 2). Values less than 2.0 after the specified number of iterations are considered in the fractal set.
The four values of this property indicate (in order) the components of C (real and imaginary) and the components of the initial value, X (real and imaginary).
The three values in this property allow you to specify the projection from the 4D space used by the Mandelbrot set to the axes of the 3D volume. By default, the real component of C (represented by 0) is mapped to the X axis; the imaginary component of C (represented by 1) is mapped to the Y axis; and the real component of X, the initial value (represented by 2) is mapped to the Z axis. The imaginary component of X is represented by 3. All values entered must be between 0 and 3, inclusive.
The four values of this property indicate the length of the output in each of the four dimensions (the real and imaginary components of C and the real and imaginary components of X). The three dimensions specified in the Projection Axes property will determine which of these values specify the length of the axes in the output.
This property specifies the rate at which to subsample the volume. The extent of the dataset in each dimension will be divided by this value.
The six values in the property indicate the X, Y, and Z extent of the output data. The first two numbers are the minimum and maximum X extent; the next two are the minimum and maximum Y extent; and the final two are the minimum and maximum Z extent. The numbers are inclusive, so values of 0, 250, 0, 250, 0, 0 indicate that the dimensions of the output will be 251 x 251 x 1.

Methods inherited from Proxy

GetProperty(self, name)
Given a property name, returns the property object.
GetPropertyValue(self, name)
Returns a scalar for properties with 1 elements, the property itself for vectors.
InitializeFromProxy(self, aProxy, update=True)
Constructor. Assigns proxy to self.SMProxy, updates the server object as well as register the proxy in _pyproxies dictionary.
Returns a list of all property names on this proxy.
SetPropertyWithName(self, pname, arg)
Generic method for setting the value of a property.
Destructor. Cleans up all observers as well as remove the proxy from the _pyproxies dictionary
