# Generalized Straightedge and Compass Fractal

Requires a Wolfram Notebook System

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

Define "the circles of a triangle" to mean the three circles centered at the vertices of the triangle with a radius equal to the "length multiplier" times the edge length of the triangle (it is most natural to let the length multiplier equal 1).

## Snapshots

## Details

An exploration of the dynamics of this system is given in my YouTube video [1], where I describe how to make this fractal using only straightedge and compass.
