## About Archimedes' Regular PatternsThis kind of Patterns consists of regular geometric figures: regular triangles, squares, hexagons, 8-angles and 12-angles. Each pattern is named by its regular figures. E.i Archimedes' first Pattern has the Type (6 6 6). This means that each joint is bounded by 3 Hexagons (6). I read all this in a book of Hans Lauwerier: "Symmetrie, Kunst en Computers" To Archimedes' Regular Pattern Number: [2] (4 8 8 ) [3] (3 6 12 ) [4] (3 12 12 ) [5] (4 4 4 4 ) [6] (3 4 6 4 ) [7] (3 6 3 6 ) [8] (3 3 3 4 4 ) [9] (3 3 4 3 4 ) [10] (3 3 3 3 6) [11] (3 3 3 3 3 3 ) |
