Can you please tell me how to place a repeating pattern around the edge of a circular/oval plate PRECISELY i.e without leaving a gap or overlapping. Is this done by (very) accurate measurement,calculation or is there some trade method that has been used for many years? Vechietto
I am a maths teacher and my students would like to know how designers/decoraters manage to fit repeating patterns etc. around the edges of circular/oval plates, precisely. I have a feeling that this is/was not done by calculation but manufacturers often devise their own ingenious and practical methods for dealing with this kind of problem. Can anyone help please?
