The artist M.C. Escher drew many lovely tilings, which he called regular divisions of the plane. He worked hard to ensure that his tilings were of lifelike animal forms such as birds and fish.

The Tactile libraries – Isohedral

september 2019 by pfctdayelise

The new Tactile library is slick, fast, lightweight, and easy to use. It’s been quite fun to play with so far, developing small demo programs that draw tilings, like the random tiling generator in the banner at the top of this page.

The library comes in two flavours: there’s a portable C++ version simply called Tactile, which should easily compile into any application. There’s also a Javascript version called TactileJS, which should make it easy to incorporate live tilings into web-based applications. The two links above will take you to Github repositories for the two libraries. They’re both offered under the permissive 3-clause BSD license, so feel free to use them however you like!

Aims

* Provide a comprehensive collection of high quality images of geometric tiling patterns;

* Provide a means of locating images by means of their geometric properties;

* Provide an authoritative source for such patterns.

Taprats Software « Composite Bodies

july 2010 by domesticat

Taprats is a great little java applet that explores Islamic tiling patterns. It can export to EPS format so it is easy to bring vector data into Rhino, Illustrator, or other programs.
