Dragon Curves Using Multiple Different Angles

This Demonstration produces dragon curves based on up to five angles. With "depth" set to 1, the "angle" slider controls the number of times the first iteration bends; sliders "a" through "e" control the angles at which it bends. The "depth" slider controls which iteration of the curve is displayed; at each iteration every straight line is replaced by a copy of the previous iteration.
