It's not a specific question,but I skill need to ask it.I've understood how to use it basically by watching some tutorials and exploring the features myself.
Several works with it have been made before,but I'm not confident enough to make them released.
Now I only use some time-escaping formulas that generate regular structures like 'MengerKoch','koch_cube' and 'Sierpinskifull' to make art works.Other ones often brings messy structures and it's hard to make any art work with them for me.
And the only things I know about dIFS formulas is that I need to select a dIFS shape formula and a 'structure' formula to generate a fractal.
But at least I can handle the options in the 'lighting' window...
The 'post processing' window makes me confused again.I saw someone made good use of it and created wonderful effects,but I don't know what the options in it can do.
Almost all the tutorials of MB3D is not in my native language and many of them only tell you how to make a specific fractal instead of showing how these options works,so it will take me more time to understand it while not helping me too much...
Hope that someone good at it will help me!Thank you!

Practice, practice, practice.
There are many excellent tutorials.  Follow them & experiment.
Like all arts & skills, helps if you enjoy the journey as there are few short-cuts.
Tweak the parameters of artists you enjoy.  DeviantArt has groups specific for MB3D params.  Facebook's Mandelbulb Maniac's.  Google is your friend. 

Here's a good start

Hal Tenny's tutorials are classics
Good luck!

Thank you for yur advice!But unfortunately,I can't use some websites like Facebook and Google because the network in the place I live is limited...But at least your shared link is avaliable!Hope that I can make wonderful fractals with MB3D one day!
