|Nested, nested, nested component arrays|
This pattern was created starting from a single component that can be either round or square, with a choice of colours. The component was then nested into another component and arrayed in one direction; then nested again and arrayed in the other direction. In between were a few more nestings to enable alternating patterns. All this was controlled by parametrics to choose colours, shapes and pattern repetition in each direction. From the same component it was possible to generate quite different result as seen below:

I will show a little more detail of how these were created in a subsequent post here. Those of you who were lucky enough to attend RTC 2011 can download a detailed step-by-step guide of how to create them, even if you didn't attend the actual presentation.
