Using pressure formulas we compute the Hausdorff dimension of the basic set of 'almost every' C1+α horseshoe map in ℝ3 of the form F(x, y, z) = (γ(x, z), τ(y, z), ψ(z)), where |ψ′| > 1 and 0 < |γ′x|, |τ′y| < 1/2 on the basic set. Similar results are obtained for attractors of nonlinear 'baker's maps' in ℝ3.
