Fractals are ubiquitous as in natural objects and have been applied in designing porous structures such as micro antenna and porous silicon. The seemingly complex and irregular structures can be generated based on simple principles. In this paper, we present three approaches to construct 3D fractal geometries using a recently proposed periodic surface model. By applying iterated function systems to the implicit surface model in the Euclidean or parameter space, 3D fractals can be constructed efficiently. Porosity is also proposed as a metric in fractal design.
