How to get qb64 to help you think about jigsaws and Tiling of Floors.
« on: April 15, 2013, 02:57:07 AM »
I am interested in getting help from my computer in designing pieces of a jigsaw.
Each piece must fit, leaving no gaps and chinks.
Can each piece be the same shape and size?

If you "cheat" and tell it to try equal edge-length pieces, yes it DOES discover and tell you about triangular, square and hexaganal pieces.
But HOW do we START getting it to think about other shapes.
If it could discover a Penrose Tile, it could tell us if there are any other such shapes!

Many thanks for your ideas
