Truchet Generator

Hi there.

This is something that might make it into a macro eventually, but for now it's a first proof of concept.
This setup generates truchet patterns based on a couple of different shapes, generated entirely in Fusion.

To change the look, open the Usertab of the TruchetMaster,
select the shapes you want to use
and click Update Pattern.

The other controls like size/radius/...work right away without the need to update manually.

Enjoy.

Eric.

Thanks, mate.
Yep. Looking abstract and pretty is the main purpose for this.
Currently I'm experimenting with the hexagon version of the patterns.
It's definitely more prissy when it comes to tiling....:-/

I think I spot at least one eggplant in there....

That's really neat. Need to figure out how you did that.

Thanks...:-)
It's all based on the principle of rotating self-repeating patterns like here:
