Find interesting patterns in three-dimensional cellular automaton (CA) images and colorize segmented parts based on their volume at different steps by varying the controls. Change the clipping to remove a portion of the volume to show hidden components inside the graphic. Increase the total number of components by unchecking "corner neighbors." Change "clipping" in one dimension (the direction) to see all the slices in that direction.
