I ran some tests with one of my electronic components from Eagle3D. It 
is totally out of scale but looks nice anyway.

It appears my LEGO Lizard has had a minor overgrowth problem.  Sorry, I couldn't
help it! :-)  I like the density, but the twigs are a bit too "crooked." Great
macro!

Yeah, the ivy macro does some nice results.

My only suggestion is to use a spline instead of cylinders for the branches 
of the Ivy from which the leafs derive. If you do this, then I promise you I 
will download the macro!   ;-)

the macro works great - several csg objects here - not done yet but the ivy
definitely adds to it - thanks!

I am not the builder, only same first name. ;-) But it is a very fine 
modeller, and useful.

...or is this hobBIT's own ivy generator (2009)? I think it is.

It was a macro I found here - upon looking at the files it is Thomas Hoppe I
believe. Is he the hobBIT?

Very nice work! I played around with the generator by Thomas Luft times 
and again. His GUI takes some time to get used to. So it would be 
interesting to learn how you implemented it in POV. I cannot judge if 
you have put ivy around the stems of your trees. May be or not. In the 
case of yes, you should change for a winter scene and strip off the 
foliage of the trees.

As far as I can jugde Thomas approach, he covers surfaces only. But if I 
look at the garage next door, I see ivy building a thick layer with a 
height of more than a meter at least. But I think this will be hard to 
achieve, cause the ivy grows on itself.

Best regards
Michael

Still figuring out how to work with this macro and Constructive Solid Objects.
Beginning to get it. It uses the base position of the object prior to
transforming it to it's final position. So I enclose it in an object and
translate it into position just before closing the object bracket. In this image
the side wall was built in the center and translated to either side so the ivy
has to be moved to the position of the wall using the same transform. Thanks to
Thomas Hoppe (hobBIT) for this great macro as it adds to the texture I was
trying to achieve.
