A tessellation, or tiling, is a repeating pattern of figures that completely covers a plane without gaps or overlap.

A tessellation is a repeated geometric design that covers a plane without gaps or overlaps.

A mosiac pattern of small square blocks.

This is when the basic term for when complex objects are broken down into simpler objects. This most often referrers to 3D objects being broken down into their individual polygon components.

the process of dividing an area into smaller, contiguous tiles with no gaps in between them.

A 2-D design in which the component shapes touch each other along all edges but do not overlap, interlocking in a pattern that completely fills a surface.

Process of splitting an area into tiles.

A repetitive pattern of polygons that covers (or tiles) a plane with no gaps and no overlaps

subdividing a shape into primitives. For example, a concave polygon can be tessellated into triangles, a solid torus into tetrahedra.

(4) An arrangement of closed shapes that covers a surface completely without overlaps or gaps.

pattern formed by a single shape that when repeated covers the plane with no gaps and no overlaps

a surface in a plane covered by the transformation (translation, reflection, rotation) of a single shape. Verb: tessellate.

an arrangement of congruent figures that covers a surface without gaps or overlapping

A sub-division of space into discrete elements. Raster surfaces sub-divide space into regular tessellations such as pixels. Polygons are examples of irregular tessellations.

the careful juxtaposition of shapes in a pattern; "a tessellation of hexagons"

the act of adorning with mosaic

a collection of shapes called tiles that fit together without gaps or overlaps to cover the mathematical plane

a group of shapes that will fit together with no spaces or gaps

an arrangement of closed shapes that completely covers the plane without overlapping and without leaving gaps

an arrangement of figures that fill the plane but do not overlap or leave gaps or spaces

an illustration of one shape that fits perfectly together with itself to create a pattern

an interlocking, geometric shape that repeats without overlapping or leaving spaces, forming a continuous pattern

a pattern made up of one or more shapes, completely covering a surface

a pattern of interlocking shapes with no spaces and no overlaps

a pattern of one or more shapes, completely covering a two-dimensional plane

a pattern of repeating pieces which covers a plane without gaps

a pattern that can be made when a single geometric shape is repeated to fill a space

a potentially endless repeating pattern, which fits together like puzzle pieces

a repeating geometric pattern

a repeating pattern that completely fills a plane region with congruent figures that do not overlap

a shape or tile that repeats to fill a surface without any gaps or overlaps

a special pattern made from copies of one or more shapes called tiles

a tiled pattern formed by repeating figures to fill a plane without gaps or overlaps

a tiling of congruent shapes without overlaps or gaps

a tiling or covering of a plane with a repeated geometric design without gaps or overlaps

a way of using a fixed shape to cover the whole of a flat surface (a plane)

Reduction of a portion of an analytic surface to a mesh of polygons, or of a portion of an analytic curve to a sequence of lines.

an arrangement of polygons such that a given plane is completely covered with no gaps and whose angles, when arranged around a point, add up to exactly 360

Any repeating pattern of interlocking shapes

a covering of a plane with congruent copies of the same pattern with no holes and no overlaps, like floor tiles.

The process of dividing an object or surface into geometric primitives (triangles, quadrilaterals, or other polygons) for simplified processing and rendering.

Congruent plane figures/shapes that cover a plane completely without overlapping.

A design which can be tiled to from a complete pattern Also applied to a complex method of twisting and collapsing paper

An arrangement of closed shapes that covers a surface completely without overlaps or gaps. See also tile.

The process of covering a geometry with rectangular tiles without gaps or overlaps.

A repeating pattern of interlocking shapes.

A repeated pattern of a geometric figure that will completely cover a surface.

1. In general, the covering of a geometric model by congruent plane figures of various shapes and sizes but of the same type, without any gaps or overlaps. 2. In dynamics, the internal conversion of NURBS objects to polygons before rigid body dynamics are animated. The tessellation factor sets the approximate number of polygons created during this conversion. Low numbers create coarser geometry (and nickeling) and lessen animation accuracy, but increase the playback speed.

A tessellation or tiling of the plane is a collection of plane figures that fills the plane with no overlaps and no gaps. One may also speak of tessellations of the parts of the plane or of other surfaces. Generalizations to higher dimensions are also possible.
