Boarders

Divide the plane into squares or hexagons with borders.

boarders

Divide the plane into squares with borders.

Type: 2D
Author: Joel and Michael Faber
Date: 16 Sep 2007

Divide the plane into squares of size 1, and make a copy of each. Shrink one copy to half size and keep it in place. Poke a square hole in the other and expand it to make a frame around the first.

boarders2 / pre_boarders2

Divide the plane into squares with borders, with parameters.

Type: 2D
Author: Georg Kiehne (xyrus02)
Date: 31 Jul 2010

Divide the plane into squares of size 1, and make a copy of each. Scale both copies by parameter c, and keep one copy in place. Poke a square hole in the other, dividing it into four trapezoids meeting at the corners to form a frame. Move each trapezoid away from the center a distance specified by parameter left, expanding them to maintain a solid frame.

To imitate boarders, set all parameters to 0.5. To imitate linear, set c=1 and left=0.

ParameterDescription
cScale factor, normally less than one to shrink the squares.
leftOffset value for the trapezoids that form the frame.
rightA density balancing factor for the square in the middle vs the frame. High values emphasize the frame (and may make the middle disappear completely); low values emphasize the square.

dc_boarders

Presumably, a direct color version of boarders, but it appears to be the same as boarders.

Type: 2D, direct color

tri_boarders2

Divide the plane into hexagons with borders.

Type: 2D
Author: Alexey Ermushev (eralex61)
Date: Early 2008

Divide the plane into hexagons and make a copy of each. Shrink one copy and keep it in place. Poke a hexagonal hole in the other and expand it to make a frame around the first.

ParameterDescription
radiusRadius of the hexagons
widthScale factor for the in-place hexagon

xtrb

Divide the plane into hexagons with borders, with julian feature.

Type: 2D
Author: Georg Kiehne (xyrus02)
Date: 17 Nov 2012

Xtrb is a cross between tri_boarders2 and julian. To imitate tri_boarders2, set power, dist, a, and b to 1 and the amount to the square root of the tri_boarders2 amount.

ParameterDescription
powerJulian power (see julian)
radiusRadius of the hexagons
widthScale factor for the in-place hexagons
distDistortion factor; increase to stretch the result
a and bControl the angles in the hexagon shape calculation; change to use non-hexagon shapes

Bug: The amount is multiplied twice, which may cause unexpected results. To work around, set the amount to the square root of what would normally be used.
