Hi Gerd,
What a beautiful (and complex object) Cube
May the complexity be always with you in 2009 _________________ Cheers,

Let's play with archimedian spirals!
So copy this codes to your 'personal.k3ds' file for further experiments...
Code:  Name: PG_ArchiSpiral_1
/* Isosurface: PG_ArchiSpiral_1 clockwise spiral 1/2009 Gerd Platl */
F(): 0.5  z*z  sin((sqrt(x*x+y*y)  0.5*atan2(y,x)))^2
[x]: 9 , 9
[y]: 9 , 9
[z]: 0.71 , 0.71
; 
Code:  Name: PG_ArchiSpiral_2
/* Isosurface: PG_ArchiSpiral_2 counterclockwise spiral 1/2009 Gerd Platl */
F(): 0.5  z*z  sin((sqrt(x*x+y*y) + 0.5*atan2(y,x)))^2
[x]: 9 , 9
[y]: 9 , 9
[z]: 0.71 , 0.71
; 
Code:  Name: PG_DoubleSpiral_1
/* Isosurface: PG_DoubleSpiral_1 1/2009 Gerd Platl */
F(): 0.5  z*z  sin((sqrt(x^2+y^2) atan2(y,x)))^2
[x]: 9 , 9
[y]: 9 , 9
[z]: 0.71 , 0.71
; 
Code:  Name: PG_OverlapSpiral_3
/* Isosurface: PG_OverlapSpiral_3 7/2009 Gerd Platl */
F(): 0.05 z*z  sin((sqrt(x*x+y*y)))^2 + sin((sqrt(x*x+y*y)
 (11*atan2(y,x))))^2
[x]: 9 , 9

And here are some PovRay pictures of a 4 edges twisted torus...
Using polished metal as material gives some nice reflections...
Twisted Torus combined with a Schartz surface..
12 edges twisting around the torus...

inspired by joteros surface design I was creating this nice sculpture
Code:  Name: PG_SurfaceDesign_1
/* Isosurface: PG_SurfaceDesign_1, 6/2010 by Gerd Platl */
F(): 0.7
 abs (cos(x)*sin(z) + cos(y)*sin(x) + cos(z)*sin(y)) / 0.4
0.85*abs (sin(3*x)*sin(2*y)*sin(z)
+ sin(2*x)*sin(3*y)*sin(z)
+ sin(3*x)*sin(y)*sin(2*z)
+ sin(x)*sin(3*y)*sin(2*z)
+ sin(2*x)*sin(y)*sin(3*z)
+ sin(x)*sin(2*y)*sin(3*z))
(x^22 + y^22 + z^22)*2E14
[x]: 4.5 , 4.5
[y]: 4.5 , 4.5
[z]: 4.5 , 4.5

Stefan was rendering this figure using bright copper metal with the Maxwell renderer at http://forum.jotero.com/viewtopic.php?t=258&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=90. Isn't it brilliant?
(ps. pictures created with my 'Algebraic Surface Viewer')

Hi Furan
That's really a beautiful visualised object using that green glass.
The ray refractions and reflektions produce an interesting and contrasty picture.
Please can you give us more detailed information about the rendering process?
Which render engine do you use?
How long was the rending time ?
used CPU ?
number of light sources ?
any other noteable infos you can give to us ?
Gerd

I used my own fortran engine for meshless rendering. http://furan.sweb.cz/
This image was rendered in 10x10 AA, on three cores in several hours. Up to 20 branches in reflection/refraction ray tree. No dispersion.
I think I may have used a slight internal glow in the glass to make it more realistic (to mimic subsurface scattering).
Background function is
Code: 
DO f=1,3
BGND(f)=0.35*(0.25*f*(1+0.3*ry)+1.5*(1+0.3*rx))+8*exp(20*rx**220*ry**2)
END DO

with [rx ry rz] as the escaping ray vector and f as RGB color identifier.
This function is of course too complex, it's a remnant of a more sophisticated function.
So from the last part of the expression you can see there are two major light sources, right above and under. The camera position is [5.3 3.7 4.5] relative to the center of the object.
At the end I used a filter for bloom effect but its almost negligible.
There are still things I don't like. I mean the black areas, where my interpolating algorithm collapsed and where I decided to skip the whole subpixel calculation. Something went wrong in there, it's still work in progress. I now have a working algorithm for correcting any part of the image. I can take the image, paint all artefacts with bright green [0,1,0] and it identifies the pixels and calculates them with better precision or so. It's so cool
