Dragon curve generator tool What is a dragon curve generator?
This tool draws dragon curves — a self-similar, space-filling, fractal-like curves. You can change the color of the curve and its background and set the width and height of the space that curve fills. You can also specify how many iterations of dragon curve to generate. Because computing it is an expensive process, we limit it to 20 iterations. As computers get more powerful, we'll allow higher order curves. Last but not least you can specify curve's thickness and add padding around the edges so it looks nicer. Mathabulous!
