This paper discusses the concept of three-dimensional (3D) fractal interpolation and the possibility to use it in modeling 3D surfaces. It is important to notice that this paper treats fractal interpolation only as a numerical tool and not as a model. The purpose of the research is to create a methodology for obtaining models for the given 3D surface and making them similar to it to a certain degree. The set of models then can be investigated as required (3D graphical representation, simulation of particular technological process, quality assessment for bonded surfaces, etc.). Measuring a particular 3D surface and making a set of models is far more cost efficient than performing the measurements many times.
