How to create pattern in Skatter


#1

I’m trying to create the pattern below in Skatter. I find that using the grid setting and rotating it 45 degrees achieves alternating rows and columns but only when the spacing is equal on both the x and y axis. What I can’t figure out is how to get alternating columns and rows that spaced apart at a different dimension as seen below.

I don’t think this is possible for now.

You can fake it by scattering along lines, but that will be tedious to set up.

Actually it’s possible using two separate Skatter setups and playing with offsets.

Here is an example file: skatter_pattern.skp (178.7 KB)
