    Tarp Pattern Maker

    I recently ordered some cuben fabric and was trying to find a pattern I liked for my tarp. So I created a simulation that provides an efficient fabric pattern for a given rectangular or hex, symmetric or asymmetric tarp. I wanted to share it with the community.

    I've tested it pretty throughly, but if you find any bugs, let me know.

    Thanks so much for sharing this. I'm scared of math and you're smart.

    Cool project. Thanks for sharing with HF. As I played with it for a few minutes, I could see how this would be very helpful as I plan out a couple of new tarps.

    I was having a hard time moving the points on the lower graph. I'm on a mac if that makes a difference. Am I supposed to click and drag or what?

    If it helps, you can think about it like creating a tarp in reverse. Normally you'd cut the fabric first and then arrange it into the design you want. This simulation allows you to pick the design you want first and it will produce the fabric pattern for you. The way to design the tarp is through cells B2, B3, B4, and B5 in the spreadsheet. With the exception of point O, none of the points in the diagram are dragable.
