These are tiled geometry patterns in obj format, some of which would be troublesome to create by hand.

MORE IMPORTANTLY the download contains the C code that generated these geometry patterns and exports them to .obj  - potentially, a powerful tool.

 

Author's description:

This archive contains meshes of all of the regular and semi-regular tilings of the plane. Here a "regular" tiling is one consisting of only a single regular polygon. A "semi-regular" tiling may include more than one type of polygon, but every vertex will look identical. The archive includes:

  • meshes of the three regular tilings
  • meshes of the eight semi-regular tilings
  • the C source used to generate these meshes

Each mesh contains roughly two thousand faces. The source can be used to generate tilings with more faces.
