Truchet Pattern Explorer

Experiment with the Truchet square below, by rotating the individual tiles to form differentent patterns. Try turning the symmetry rules off and on, and clicking the 'apply rule' button. The same underlying pattern can be displayed using different versions of the Truchet tiles, some with no rotational symmetry, some with 2-fold rotational symmetry (the Smith and Diagonal tiles).
