Requires a Wolfram Notebook System

Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.

This Demonstration lets you play with a 3D flying turtle that lays a pipeline in space. It is a generalization of traditional turtle graphics, which is planar. At each moment, the flying turtle's state is given by its position and attitude (or orientation). The attitude is defined by the heading and the normal.
