I-Liner is experimental software designed around the study of tilings for the plane. The software was written to help pattern designers more easily develop seemless patterns and to make the advantages of geometric design accessible to users. The program makes use of the 14 wallpaper groups, allowing the user to draw a motif and have various geometric transformations applied to the motif automatically. Only basic functionality was implemented and the software was written to run in a web browser using ActionScript 3.0.
This video (1.5 min) is a demonstration of the software. Several test-runs are shown. The interface consists of various tilings and lattices available on the left side of the screen, below the tools. A render window appears on the right, and the artist draws onto the square in the center of the screen.
