5. Set the Interior Type control to Filled, in order to fill the baseshape interior voxels.
6. Increase the iteration Depth to 4, also change the baseshape Radius.
7. Enable the Show Baseshape option in order to show the uniterated baseshape

10. When the Volumetric render process starts, the render wheel will begin to turn.
11. After a time (depending of the fractal complexity), press the Export Volume as STL Mesh button in order to start the mesh generation process.

12. Incendia will perform several analyses to the rendered volume and will begin to generate the resulting mesh.
13. Now you can end the volumetric mode by pressing the Close the Volumetric Mode.
