Hi All

A small update to allow zero as a gap, if triangles are exploded
it will leave straight lines not multiple lines..previous version did not
allow gaps of anything less than 0.00001 units
More patterns on the way :-) I have a few Ideas... :lol:

Cheers

Hi All

Well I've been busy today with a new pattern, it's called Weave... it can be used for many things including paving if you set both
height & width the same and tick "Enable Double Weave" :wink:
All the Tabs along the top are now sorted Alphabetically just to make it easier to find them Weatherboard was at the front for too long lol..
Also you can use the arrow keys to quickly scroll through the patterns.. see screenshots below of some possibilities with the weave pattern..

Hi All

Just to let you know, all these patterns can be altered to produce different results
simply by playing around with the settings for instance below, just swapping 2 settings
Height & Width produces a completely different pattern....
Pattern is also stable at 1000,000 Units not Tiles as previously posted from datum...
Cheers
John

Hi All

New Pattern Added "DotCirc" Read the BHT-Usage.txt on how to Simulate a Circle

Please Remember the higher the dot count the more chance there will be of the
pattern causing lag... This pattern was quite a bit of work so I hope you all enjoy :-)

Hi All

Next Version with some more options on BRICK-02 & GRILLE-02, Remember all sizes are adjustable just showing some examples below eg. GRILLE-02 with 2 lines removed resembles the installed ANGLE.PAT file but you can adjust all sides and gap to suit whatever purposes you like. Also remember that you can rotate these patterns so the 2nd pattern can be rotated to create an angle facing the other way.. ;-)
