A Radial Tessellation Using Three Types of Rhombi

The yellow rhombi have angles of 40 and 140 degrees, while the blue rhombi have angles of 80 and 100 degrees, just like in the last post here. However, that post did not include the red rhombi, which have angles … Continue reading

A Radial Tessellation Using Two Types of Rhombi

The yellow rhombi have angles which measure 40 and 140 degrees, while the blue rhombi’s angles measure 80 and 100 degrees.

Fractiles’ Mandala, Based on Angles of Pi/7 Radians

Although this was based on something I constructed using the Fractiles-7 magnetic tiling toy, I did not have enough magnetic pieces to finish this. The idea was, therefore, converted into a (non-Euclidean) construction using Geometer’s Sketchpad, and then refined using … Continue reading

Octagons Can Tile a Plane III

Unlike my previous octagon-tiling discoveries (see previous post), this is a chiral, radial tessellation, with the colors chosen to highlight that fact.

Order-Six Radial Tessellations of the Plane, Using Elongated and Equilateral Hexagons, Rendered with Different Coloring-Schemes

I explored radial tessellations of the plane, using only hexagons, in this earlier post. Order-three tessellations of this type are the familiar regular-hexagon tessellations of the plane. With higher-order all-hexagon radial tessellations, though, the hexagons must be elongated, although they … Continue reading
