My Fascination with Escher Tilings in the plane on the sphere on the torus M.C. Escher Jane Yen, 1997 Young Shon, 2002

3
My Fascination with Escher Tilings u on higher-genus surfaces: London Bridges 2006 u What next ?

4
Celebrating the Spirit of M.C. Escher Try to do Escher-tilings in 3D … A fascinating intellectual excursion !

5
A Very Large Domain ! u A very large domain u keep it somewhat limited

6
Monohedral vs. Isohedral monohedral tiling isohedral tiling In an isohedral tiling any tile can be transformed to any other tile location by mapping the whole tiling back onto itself.

7
Still a Large Domain! Outline u Genus 0 l Modulated extrusions l Multi-layer tiles l Metamorphoses l 3D Shape Editing u Genus 1: Toroids u Tiles of Higher Genus u Interlinked Knot-Tiles

8
How to Make an Escher Tiling u Start from a regular tiling u Distort all equivalent edges in the same way

9
Genus 0: Simple Extrusions u Start from one of Eschers 2D tilings … u Add 3 rd dimension by extruding shape.

10
Extruded 2.5D Fish-Tiles Isohedral Fish-Tiles Go beyond 2.5D !

11
Modulated Extrusions u Do something with top and bottom surfaces ! Shape height of surface before extrusion.

15

16
Offset (Shifted) Overlay u Let Thick and thin areas complement each other: u RED = Thick areas; BLUE = THIN areas;

17
Shift Fish Outline to Desired Position u CAD tool calculates intersections with underlying height map of repeated fish tiles.

18
3D Shape is Saved in.STL Format As QuickSlice sees the shape …

19
Fabricated Tiles …

20
Building Fish in Discrete Layers u How would these tiles fit together ? need to fill 2D plane in each layer ! u How to turn these shapes into isohedral tiles ? selectively glue together pieces on individual layers.

21
M. Goerners Tile u Glue elements of the two layers together.

22
Movie on YouTube ?

23
Escher Night and Day u Inspiration: Eschers wonderful shape transformations (more by C. Kaplan…)

24
Escher Metamorphosis u Do the morph-transformation in the 3 rd dim.

25
u Bird into fish … and back

26
Fish Bird-Tile Fills 3D Space 1 red + 1 yellow isohedral tile

27
True 3D Tiles u No preferential (special) editing direction. u Need a new CAD tool ! u Do in 3D what Escher did in 2D: modify the fundamental domain of a chosen tiling lattice

28
A 3D Escher Tile Editor u Start with truncated octahedron cell of the BCC lattice. u Each cell shares one face with 14 neighbors. u Allow arbitrary distortions and individual vertex moves.

29
Cell 1: Editing Result u A fish-like tile shape that tessellates 3D space

30
Another Fundamental Cell u Based on densest sphere packing. u Each cell has 12 neighbors. u Symmetrical form is the rhombic dodecahedron. u Add edge- and face-mid-points to yield 3x3 array of face vertices, making them quadratic Bézier patches.

31
Cell 2: Editing Result u Fish-like shapes … u Need more diting capabilities to add details …

32
Lessons Learned: u To make such a 3D editing tool is hard. u To use it to make good 3D tile designs is tedious and difficult. u Some vertices are shared by 4 cells, and thus show up 4 times on the cell-boundary; editing the front messes up back (and some sides!). u Can we let a program do the editing ?

33
Iterative Shape Approximation u Try simulated annealing to find isohedral shape: Escherization, Kaplan and Salesin, SIGGRAPH 2000 ). A closest matching shape is found among the 93 possible marked isohedral tilings; That cell is then adaptively distorted to match the desired goal shape as close as possible.

34
Escherization Results by Kaplan and Salesin, 2000 u Two different isohedral tilings.

35
Towards 3D Escherization u The basic cell – and the goal shape

36
Simulated Annealing in Action u Basic cell and goal shape (wire frame) u Subdivided and partially annealed fish tile

37
The Final Result u made on a Fused Deposition Modeling Machine, u then hand painted.

55
Are There Other Rings ?? u We have now seen the three rings that follow from the Conway construction. u Are there other rings ? u In particular, it is easily possible to make a key-ring of order 3 -- does this lead to a lattice with isohedral tiles ?

56
3-Segment Ring ? u NO – that does not work !

PART III: Tiles Of Higher Genus u No need to limit ourselves to simple genus_1 toroids ! u We can use handle-bodies of higher genus that interlink with neighboring tiles with separate handle-loops. u Again the possibilities seem endless, so lets take a structures approach and focus on regular tiles derived from the 3 lattices that we have discussed so far in this talk.

What Linking Numbers are Possible? u We have: 4, 6, 10, 3 u And by splitting: 8, 12, 20, 6 u Lets go for the low missing numbers: 1, 2, 5, 7, 9 …

102
Linking Number =1 u Cube with one handle that interlocks with one neighbor

103
Linking Number =2 u Long chains of interlinked rings, packed densely side by side.

104
Linking Number =5 u Idea: take every second one in the triamond lattice with L=10 u But try this first on Honecomb where it is easier to see what is going on …
