Tile JSL part 1

8424_penroseSmall.png

Here's the first part of the code for the video in the previous post.  This is a straight-forward translation/conversion of the reference.  The generator recursively subdivides the starting space, using a set of rules that make a valid Penrose tiling.  Sorry, can't explain the rules, just the code to apply them.

On line 49, set the level, up to about 8 if you have time.

In Part 2, code to isolate the polygons, remove duplicates, and make them all have the same handedness. https://community.jmp.com/t5/Uncharted/More-tile/ba-p/21047 https://community.jmp.com/t5/Uncharted/Tile/ba-p/21259
