Twist again

twist1-14672Often, mirror-symmetric figures are too static for my taste. I prefer pure rotational symmetry. Thus I added to the growth method of the last post a new tip growth step. It changes growth directions by an angle of 45 degrees, destroying mirror symmetry and leading to rotating shapes. I let the computer apply this step with only a very low probability. Yet, this new step strongly alters the ornaments. Simply compare the results shown here with those of the last post.
