Random Hexagons and Other Patterns Continuities

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientific


This study focuses on generation of non-repeating patterns using regular polygon tessellations. Number of tessellations using regular polygons is limited. In this study I’m limiting used polygons to triangle, square and hexagon for practical reasons. Shapes are categorised by number of segments at each edge of the polygon as well if edge is symmetrical or not. Segments on edges are joined inside the polygon in all possible ways under certain rules, which gives us several different shapes for each polygon in different categories. Combining and rotating different shapes gives huge variation of different non-repeating, but continuing patterns. These patterns can be designed, random or originate from any source data. Using parametric algorithms different variations can be generated easily.
