Rotation Tessellations

To make a reflection tessellation, you must start with a(n) 60°/120° rhombus. You can create one of these very easily.

Getting Started. . .

1. Place points B and D on the screen. Select B, then D and make a circle by center and point.
2. Next select D, then B and make another circle by center and point.
3. Label the intersections of the two circles A and C.
4. The points A, B, C and D are the four vertices of your rhombus. You don't need to draw in the segments because you're going to have to hide them later anyway.
