# Hilbert fractal

World's simplest fractal tool
This utility lets you draw custom and colorful Hilbert fractals. You can customize Hilbert fractal's width and height, fractal curve's color and width, as well as the background color. You can also set its orientation and change the number of recursive iterations. As the Hilbert fractal is space-filling, then given enough iterations, this fractal will eventually fill entire space.

## What is a hilbert fractal?

learn more about this tool
This online browser-based tool illustrates Hilbert fractals. It's useful if you want to create your own personal Hilbert fractal. The Hilbert fractal is actually a variant of the space-filling Peano fractal and it grows exponentially with each iteration size. The space-filling property means that given enough iterations, it will always fill the entire given space without ever crossing itself. Mind blowing and ingenious at the same time, or as we love to say – fractabulous!

## Hilbert fractal examples

Click to useFourth-order Hilbert Fractal

In this example, we set the iterations count to 4 and that created a 4th-order Hilbert fractal. We love colors so we also chose cardinal pink as the background color and Paris daisy yellow as curve color.

**Required options**

Fractal width.

Fractal height.

Recursive depth of the fractal.

Fractal curve color.

Fractal curve width.

Background color.

Padding around the fractal.
(In pixels.)

A Vertical Hilbert Curve

In this example, we're drawing a Hilbert curve in a 500x800 space. As the height is larger than width, it creates a vertical Hilbert fractal curve.

**Required options**

Fractal width.

Fractal height.

Recursive depth of the fractal.

Fractal curve color.

Fractal curve width.

Background color.

Padding around the fractal.
(In pixels.)

A Hilbert Maze

In this example, we've set the recursion depth to 6. We've chosen a green color for the curve and it makes this example look like a maze. We call it a Hilbert Maze. (Fun stuff: If you change the depth to 7, then the fractal will fill entire space. Try it!)
