AGM: Resize & Stretch
Change the size or dimensions of a knot
One of the coolest parts about Advanced Grid Maker is the interactive image it creates. With the Resize and Stretch features, you can resize the image to either resize a knot or stretch it into different dimensions. Here’s a quick demo of both.
Here I’ve highlighted the Resize and Stretch buttons – they’re nowhere near the image 🙂
AGM starts off in Resize mode – when you resize the pattern image, you are changing the size of the knot. Notice the number of bights & parts – shown below the image – update dynamically as you resize.
The Stretch feature lets you change the dimensions of a knot without changing its size – notice the number of bights and parts do not change. This is handy when you’re trying to estimate what a knot will look like covering different objects.
