We now proceed as we did earlier for the projection method in “breaking the ten-fold rotational symmetry“. The sets of parallel lines are moved alternatingly back and forth from the origin. Thus s_i=0.5+xTrans*cos(i*PI/n)+yTrans*sin(i*PI/n)+plusMinus for even i and s_i=0.5+xTrans*cos(i*PI/n)+yTrans*sin(i*PI/n)-plusMinus for odd i. Using n=5 and plusMinus=0.405 I get a quasiperiodic tiling of 5-fold rotational symmetry:

Again the positions of the stars of ten rhombs and the points of the projection method agree.
