In my applet, you can set the area you want to zoom in on by holding down the mouse button and dragging on the picture. You can also set the coordinates that you want to look at in the four text boxes. Press "Zoom In" when you are satisfied with the bounds you want to see. For instance, try changing "Xmax" to 1.1 and then click on "Zoom In." The program runs much faster if your computer has a floating point math processor such as that found in the Intel Pentium. You might try setting the resolution to "Low" until you find an interesting area and then have a look at the "High Res" version.

Java programmers may wish to check out the source code. Unless you're using JBuilder, you'll need the JAR file to compile the program. The JAR file contains classes for which I'm not allowed to distribute the source.

You might also wish to check out Big Blue Saw, which is a website that I created which can turn a design that you create on your computer into a real plastic or metal part. Right now, this is mostly done through the process of waterjet cutting.
