The internet makes it so easy to use someone else's ideas without giving intelectual acknowlegement. I don't want to steal. So......Does anyone here have a good tesselation pattern to share.

Good question.  My favorite Tesselate is Alt-J's.  Seen this?

How's about a little Alt-J background mood music, for while you work :)  Let's Tesselate

Jrgpots, Does anyone here have a good tesselation pattern to share.

 

A rather large subject, can you give some idea of what you want to do with them? Regards, Peter

 

My first thoughts:

- Islamic tilings

- Girih tiles (behind much/most Islamic tilings)

- Escher's work

- The seventeen wallpaper groups (most of them present in the Alhambra tilings)

- Quasicrystals

- Celtic knots (regular tesselation, varying pattern on the tiles, smooth joins)

... and -- coming from a different direction -- Wang tiles. Where the aim is to have a small set of

patterned tiles that can be used to produce an infinite tiling where the joints and the periodicy of

the tiles are hard to see.

 

Some of the space-filling curves almost qualify.

Most draw and paint programs have tutorials on the web on how to do a tesselation using the program. Just another option.
