Mathematics and Art come together!
First - just play with it! Draw on it. Try the different tools and see what happens.
You can control the spacing:
- Blue dot controls x-y spacing of grid
- Red dot controls rotation of the grid
Best to just try dragging the dots to see what happens!
You can draw regular polygons using the polygon tool. Choose the number of sides, from 3 (Triangles) to 12 (Dodecagons). You may also need to adjust the angle to get the desired effect.
Nudge and Undo
You can nudge the most recent addition by using the up down left right keys.
Press ctrl to make smaller adjustments.
You can also use "Undo" to remove the last shape.
What Can You Make?
You can make all kinds of interesting patterns! Have a look at the Tessellation page - there are lots of examples of tiling patterns that were made using tessellation artist (some color was added using a simple paint program).
