Greek patterns in tiles

Cyprus, Greece, has a long history of decorative patterns of noteworthy geometric complexity and students from the University of Nicosia are keeping up the tradition.

In a course for Advanced Computer Aided Design, the second year students were assigned to first create a 2D geometric shape. They then used the shape to create a 3D pattern in Rhino and Paneling Tools. The students designed 18 tessellated tiles. 

Each tile took an average of nine hours to print on ZMorph 3D printers with a 1.75 plastic extruder and white ABS.
