##### Phi/ golden mean overlay/layer
« on: January 03, 2017, 04:34:58 pm »
I have been playing with the GM and Phi a bit lately and was wondering if anyone has any tools, drawings (for overlay) or other cool stuff they use.
I found an app for my phone, but doesnt really work for work stuff.

I would love to use it more for space planning in a more efficient way..

For some odd reason, the thought of "Pigs in Space" came to mind when I read that.

Sounds like a challenge to me.

How about creating a block that is a rectangle of the correct proportion.  This can live on it's own non-plotting layer, and be copied/rescaled as necessary?

that was my thought.. but using the arc and grid .. but was looking to see if anyone else was using it.. and if so, how.. ultimately having one that can be proportionately dragged would be great, but that might be beyond my skillset at this point.

that was my next move..
I had started playing with dynamic blocks but my blocks require more moveable attributes than are available.. so I stopped learning about them..

so figure might be a good time to play, but this is great!   I am going to try to create one from scratch to mimic this..
