Pretty dang cool! :) Reminds me of lego. xD

The new feature, grid scaling, opened up the possibility to construct (or fontstruct) true isometric structures for the first time. There are two ways to do this: stretch the square grid vertically by 1.1547 or compress it horizontally by 0.8660 (= sin60º). I spare you the mathematical details here. Instead, let us enjoy the true triangles and rhombi.

Makes you wonder if this can be constructed physically...
The 4 is a bit ambiguous to 9, but other than that, it's awesome :D
Does the 01 mean this is a series?

Beautiful triangles and beautiful font too, master Frodo7!

@Frodo7 - Perfect voxels here! Would you mind posting a pic of what 1 grid square looks like? I'm having a hard time seeing what bricks and spaces make up your pattern. If not, I understand. Thanks!

Maybe using this brick...
Comment by elmoyenique 3rd April 2013
2x2 filters I think… anyway, great job. :-)

Aaah, thank you again Frodo7 with another wonderful work of art!
Comment by jphturtle 3rd April 2013
Wow, the first true isometric fontstruction. Another very impressive project, very different from Hommage à Escher and any other fonts in this genre altogether. The indents on top and bottom give this font a unique touch.
Comment by four 3rd April 2013
Wow. New possibilities opening up. This is inspirational.
Comment by Aeolien 3rd April 2013
@elmoyenique - I guess the empty spaces between the bricks has me confused. They are arranged so perfectly!

@demonics - According to Frodo7's sample pic, it appears only the Horizontal Grid scale is not 1 (looks like 0.866); the other three settings are 1...

Thank you very much for your comments and generous ratings. This is an exiting moment for all of us - having isometric grid and true triangles for the first time in Fontstruct. This was made possible by Rob Meek's brilliant new addition, the grid scaling feature. I know, I repeat myself and echo others, but it can't be emphasized enough: grid scaling is such a simple and elegant solution to a complicated problem. If true hexagonal patterns are possible at such ease, I wonder, what else is also possible? Spherical or hyperbolic distortions of the grid?

Some of your guesses were incorrect, but indicated smart lateral thinking. No doubt, there are several solutions to construct isometric patterns with true triangles. To answer your questions I present my version (see picture).

Typography... meets Science... meets Art... and the ghost of Funk_King SOMA... Welcome Back Frodo

@Frodo7 - Thank you for the second picture with the grid displayed. After I posted, I realized that the pattern was likely much, much larger than a single square to get the "outline" spacing between the triangles to look so nice. Mathematics ftw!
Comment by Goatmeal 4th April 2013
I thought it had to do something with the 1/4 bricks that stick on top of each other with a white space in the middle (if that makes sense), but then realized some things would work out (but I'm fiddling with them right now). Amazing :)

I bet you were the toughest geometry student in your class back in high school :)
Amazing!
Comment by architaraz 4th April 2013
Wow! Wow! ... WOW! The return of the King of geometry. Beautiful use of the new feature. 10/10+++++

This is great
