To start off you have to choose a figure and a color. On the canvas, by means of the mouse, you will see the figure repeating itself in the area and size of your choice, until you manage to form the shape that you want. After that you will have to keep on creating shapes that complement those that you have already created. The figures that Tess allows you to create belong to different symmetry groups.
Once you have created your mosaic, you will be able to view what it would look like on a three dimensional figure, like a cone or cube. These three dimension surfaces connect mathematically with the symmetric structures of the illustrations.
Tess allows you to save your project in a native format or to export the result in DXF, EPS, WMF, GIF, PCX, or SVG.
Experiment with proportions and symmetries and easily create awesome mosaics with Tess.
