Hi All

I needed a fair bit of help with this one so credits to CVH for all the trials he did to make this pattern possible :)
Pattern design by myself and the hatch pattern generated with Tile2Hatch b17 Copyright CVH..
CVH Changed some of the entities so this pattern could hold steady at 100,000 tiles from datum.
Some of the line endpoints in this pattern don't touch, this was necessary to maintain a stable pattern at a distance..
Cheers
John
PS I forgot to mention, this is a strange beast the Imperial master tile is not 1x1 it is 1 X 1.090909091
and in Metric it is 25.4 X 27.7090909114 [ This is a rectangular hatch tile ]
.
OK Now we have a pattern half the load and very stable, credits to CVH on this one see image..
Also keeping both patterns so people can see the difference a well thought out pattern can make...
:)
And don't spend all your time thinking about the design :)
Just Copy new patterns over old ones...

Hi All

Testing CVH's Tile2Hatch, thought I'd give the Orthogonal Tile Spacing a try out, IMO it works well and very useful :D
This is a Standard Retro Style Breeze Block in Australia the standard size in Metric is 290 x 290 with 10mm Appox Mortice Gap.
Sooooo the Imperial tile is 1x1 but the Metric one is 29 x 29 " or very close to it " so the user can have a preview of the pattern otherwise you wouldn't see a preview if I did it at 290 x 290 :) , if you want it to scale you will need to scale the hatch pattern by 10... 8)
.
Types A will have no Gaps
Types B will have Gaps

I wouldn't expect otherwise. :wink:
What really happens is that the 'Tile' grows a certain void space up and right.
And that was made fully possible by the non-uniform 'Tile' math.
Now shifting ... and adapt/rewrite the math to do so. :wink:

As Above you need to scale the Metric one by 10 if you want it 290 x 290 1:1 Size...
