  abstract =     "The properties of engineering structures, such as
                 robotic arms, aircrafts or bridges, rely on the
                 properties of the materials used to build them. The
                 internal architecture of the material or microstructure
                 determines its properties and therefore, its study is
                 of great interest for engineers and material
                 scientists. Although there are tools that can provide
                 2D microstructural information, tools that can be used
                 to obtain 3D characterisations of microstructures for
                 routine analysis are not yet available to material

                 In this paper we will describe Microconstructor.
                 Microconstructor comprises a genetic algorithm that
                 evolves populations of Cellular Automata inspired by
                 developmental biology that self organise into 3D
                 patterns that can be used for microstructural
