Re: Graph Paper Maker

Indeed I do.  Silly me.  shame

OK, that looks good.  Is it possible to vary the scale?  That would do it nicely

Thanks

Re: Graph Paper Maker

Hi Bob,

By "vary the scale" do you mean that you want to define how many lines there are (such as from x=10 to 50), or do you want to control the "skew".

The skew could be created by a transformation, something like (x,y) => (x + y*0.5, y).

Re: Graph Paper Maker

hi MathsIsFun

It would be wonderful if you can arrange it so that the number of lines is variable and the skew too.  As to how you make the skew, that transform would do it or just specify the angle between the lines.

Thanks,

Bob

Re: Graph Paper Maker

Bob, a slightly improved version: Graph Paper Maker  (look for v0.87)

You can change the scales (but not skew yet)
