Now then, who doesn't do a little study into advanced mathmatics as a hobby? I still prefer theory over the actual equations...

to be honest, i don't really like math. I just view it as a tool. I like making maille, so i will use it as a tool.

but the jap6-1 is giving me problems...

This is a screwed-up formula for Jap 6-1
any comments are welcome...

    T= total rings
    F=total flat rings
    C=total connection rings
    H=number of flat rings per primary(longer) horizontal row
    V=vertical number of primary horizontal rows
    c=horizontal connection rings
    d=diagonal connection rings


please stay with me here.

T={F+C}
C={c+d}
F={(VH)+((V-1)(H-1))}
c={((H-1)V)+((H-2)(V-1))}
d={4((H-1)(V-1))}


red are flat rings, grey are horizontal connectors, green are diagonal connectors.


that is IT for tonight! no more!!!!
tommorrow....

So here are the derivatives from Chaos's formula for Jap6-1:

Total rings: T=8HV-6H-8V+7
Flat rings: F=2HV-H-V+1
Connector rings: C=6HV-5H-7V+6

Hope this helps someone (and my math has gone the right way Smile )
Please correct me if something is wrong...

Does anyone know is there's a formula for the ring count of Dragonscale?

*going cross eyed from the funky letters*

Am I missing something, or is this more complicated than it needs to be?

Ring counts for any Euro sheet is X*Y where X is the number of columns and Y is the number of rings in a column.

<Y>
(((((((((((((((((((((((((( ^
)))))))))))))))))))))))))) |
(((((((((((((((((((((((((( X
)))))))))))))))))))))))))) |
(((((((((((((((((((((((((( v

For a FP6, 8, 10, 12 etc. chain, 4X where X is the number of cells.

HP3, 4, 5, 6, etc. chain 2X where X is the number of cells.

Dragonscale you have two types of rows that alternate, large/small and small/large. For an even number of rows, both large and small rings would be (.5R*C) where R is the number of rows and C is the number of columns. For an odd number, you would add .5C rounded up to whatever size starts the odd row and .5C rounded down to the other. Rounding not necessary if you have an even number of columns.

Now, the Japanese weaves could present some interesting formulas which I'm not going to tinker with tonight.

Now, if I'm mistaken in what I've said above, let me know where my mind slipped a cog. It is getting late for me, after all.

OK here goes

This defines between the "primary"(external chains) and the "Secondary"(internal chains)

Primary being the longer of the two and the one you start weaving first.

Key:
    P= Primary large rings
    p= Primary small rings
    S= Secondary large rings
    s= Secondary small rings
    W=Ring count of "P" rings on horizontal axis
    H= Ring count of "P" rings on vertical axis
    LT=Full count of large rings
    ST= Full count of small rings
    T= Total ring count


T={LT+ST}
LT={(WH)+((W-1)+(H-1))}
ST={((W-1)+(H-1))+((W-2)+(H-2))}



or for just a fast count without distinction between ring sizes:

T={((WH)+2((W-1)+(H-1))+((W-2)+(H-2))}

If this seems a bit confusing, it is. If you need a formula for closed sheets of DS just DECREASE the SUBTRACTIONS in the formulae by one. That will give you an accurate count.

keep in mind that this still only works with sheets and can't handle any non-rectangular shapes.

keep them coming and I might actually have enough for an article. Smile



I tried this formula and the result is waaaaaaaaaaay too low. Maybe I'm counting wrong. Could you post a picture of this one (like you did for the J 6-1)?
