When L-systems are applied to large and detailed 3D objects, the inherent serial geometric interpretation limits the speed of image generation. To accelerate the interpreting procedure, a Graphic Processing Unit (GPU) based method utilizing Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA) is proposed in this paper. The focused approach involves two phases: first is a sequential scan on the state string generated from the derivation of L-system running on CPU; the second is the parallel computing on GPU with CUDA.
