Projection method for the Stampfli and the Socolar tiling
In “A tiling of 12fold rotational symmetry from two hexagon grids” and following posts I have already discussed the projection method for the Stampfli tiling. It is quite similar to the projection method for the AmmannBeenker tiling. But there is … Continue reading
12fold rotational symmetry from projection
I use the “Projection method for 10fold rotational symmetry” with 6 instead of 5 sets of parallel lines, setting “numDirections=6;” in “projection method with polygons – the code“. Then, the program searches for 12pointed stars and gives a quasiperiodic design … Continue reading
The Voronio diagram of quasiperiodic tilings
In the post “Beautifying the double grid” I have shown how to get an interesting trellis by distorting the grid of a quasiperiodic tiling. Here I am showing Voronoi diagrams of the corner points of tilings, which make nice trellis … Continue reading
Doubling the tesselation of dodecagons and triangles
It is still too hot for my brain to do something really new and thus I continue with the semiregular tessellations. Today I am looking at the tessellation of dodecagons and triangles. Dodecagons are regular polygons with twelve sides. The … Continue reading

Doubling the tesselation of hexagons
We continue with the dualization method. Here again I am not presenting something really new. I am just trying to put things together. It was probably Socolar who first used the dualization method to get a quasiperiodic tiling of 12fold … Continue reading
