SCRIBBLE BOARD 1

The Scribble Board below t can be used just like the scribbleboard at the main ScribbleBoard Page. The advantage that this page has over the main ScribbleBoard page is that you can obtain detailed instructions for each graphic library component, by pressing the associated key icon above.

If you are using Internet Explorer 8 you can also work on any of the five ScribbleBoards at the same time. However, if you are using a browser other than Internet Explorer 8, you may find that your work disappears when you switch between ScribbleBoards.

For the most part, the number keys (0 - 9) and the alphabetical keys (A - Z) are the keys most used. The top row, the function keys, are developmental keys, and have been reserved for 3D functions that will be used in upcoming version of ScribbleBoard3D,

Scroll down past the ScribbleBoard to see a summary sheet of the Function Keys (F1 to F12) library functions and a general description of the function keys that are available

Function Key Overview

The top row of keys on your keyboard, also known as function keys or F keys, F1 through F12 are development keys for 3D design applications. Unlike the numeric and alphabetical keys, the function keys do not work the same on different browsers.

In some cases, the function keys will not work on a specific browser unless the programmed functionality of the browser is disabled. Function key enable and disable are planed for future revisions of Scribbleboard.

 

The Perspective Components Keys (Function Keys)

The Function Keys are used to create different design effects and are a basis for perspective drawings that are further elaborated on in the 3D version of the ScribbleBoard.

Function keys are advanced keys. When using function keys, the function key must be depressed and kept depressed while the mouse button is depressed. The image will not display until the mouse is dragged. The function key must also be released before the mouse button is released in order not to activate the dual image feature of the

ScribbleBoard. The dual image feature of the ScribbleBoard draws two different images at once. If activated accidentally, just activate the function key you were attempting again, and the ScribbleBoard will return to single image mode.

Note: Use the Internet Explorer 8 browser if you want to work on multiple scribble boards at once. With Internet Explore 8 you can create a drawing on more than one scribble board at once. Other browsers will erase the drawing when you switch between scribble boards.

Row Five Graphic Key Overview

The keys on row 5 of your keyboard , that is the fifth row from the bottom (keys 2 through 9) are mainly used to construct closed line geometric shapes. Positioning your mouse over the ScribbleBoard and pressing keys 2 through 9 in turn will familiarize you with the shapes and shape controls for each key quickly.

This ScribbleBoard on startup is in scribble mode. If you change to pattern mode(double clicking on the pink select button), you must hold down the key and then click your mouse to display a graphic.

Exercise 1: Scribble Mode Graphic Library

Position your mouse on the ScribbleBoard. Roll your mouse cursor over the multicolored Control Buttons on the far left side of the scribble board. Note the names of each of the buttons as you roll the mouse over each colored button. Note that there is button called the Scribble Mode button (the seventh button down, just above the orange button). If this button is black, scribble mode is on (as it should be when you land on the page). If it is purple, scribble mode is off. If scribble mode is off, you can turn it on by double clicking the Select button, and then clicking the scribble button on.

Drawing Shoes in Freehand ModeThe 1 Key: Lines

Pressing and releasing the 1 key on your keyboard will turn freehand drawing mode on an off. When in freehand mode, holding down your mouse button and dragging the mouse will produce lines and curves. Releasing the mouse button stops the drawing process.

In the quick sketch on the left, the electronic pen controls were set to draw a line with a pixel diameter of 5 pixels with the flow tip. The linewidth parameter was set in the Dimensions panel in the linewidth text box (shaded gray box). The pen tip type was set in the Rotate & Tip panel in the Reserved text box ( 0 is for the flow tip and 1 is for the stipple tip). If the flow tip is selected a continuous line is produced for each mouse movement. If the stipple tip is selected a non-continuos dotted line or curve is produced for each mouse movement. A mouse movement is defined as the movement of the mouse between the time the mouse button is depressed and released.

Electronic Pencil Mode

The green buttons to the right of each panel let you move the panel as you draw. This allows you to change the pen tip width and pen tip type more conveniently while drawing. After you turn on freehand mode, position your mouse cursor over any of the green buttons, press and hold down your mouse button and drag your mouse. As you draw the panel will move with your cursor. Many designer and artists use this mode to increase their work productivity.

For even more convenience the desktop version lets you use your mouse buttons to increase the pen tip width and change the pen tip type. As well, electronic pen controls have been made even more compact as well as use multiple clicking features to quickly change linewidths, erase and change colors. See the Desktop Version tab.

House Design, Gable Roof, HouseExplorer, GeometryExplorer, FashionExplorer, ScribbleBoardThe 5 Key: Houses (Irregular Pentagons)

Creates an irregular pentagon based on the values specified for the width and height of the supporting base rectangle. Defines the apex of the pentagon (roof) as a function of the height and the base of the supporting rectangle structure.

For house design applications, the apex of the roof is set as a percentage of the width and a percentage of the height of the supporting rectangular structure.

The figure on the left has a base rectangle that is 400 pixels wide and 200 pixels high (set in the dimensions panel). The apex of the roof is set to the point that is centered at (50 percent) of the width of the structure and has a height that is 100 percent of the base rectangle's height.

The width of the triangle that sits on top of the rectangle is calculated by multiplying the rectangles width (400) by 50 percent (set in the lengthTwo text box in the geo1 panel). The height of the triangle (roof) is calculated by multiplying the rectangle's height (200) by 2 (200 percent set in the heightTwo text box in the geo1 panel).

Creates an irregular based on the values specified with values in the Dimensions panel and geo1 panels. Primarily controlled with values entered into the width and height text boxes in the Dimensions panel and with values entered into the heightTwo, heightThree, lengthTwo and lengthThree text boxes in the geo1 panel.

Pressing the 8 key when in Scribble mode, will produce an irregular octagon that has its top most width. that is its head width equal to the value in the width text box, its middle width or waist specified with the value in the lengthTwo text box and bottom width, or leg width specified with the lengthThree text box.

Similarly, the top most height is specified with the height text box, the middle height is specified with the heightTwo text box and the bottom most length is specified with the heightThree text box. All of the relevant text boxes are highlighted in gray after the 8 key is pressed in scribble mode.

In the figure on the left, the top most width, the head width, is specified as 100 pixels, the waist width is specified as 200 pixels and the foot width is specified at 160 pixels. The head height is specified at 50 pixels, the waist height is specified at 100 pixels and the foot or leg height is specified at 150 pixels.

Besides these text box values, the linewidth can be controlled with the linewidth value and the rotate value in the Dimensions panel. In pattern and animation mode, values in the shift x and shift y text boxes and values in the width and height values are used to determine the vertical and horizontal shift for alignment and copy as well as moving operations.

Application: Technical and Figure Drawing Applications. Used for the construction of architectural and interior design elements such as furniture. Industrial design elements such as packages and containers and boxes are also designed with the tool.

SCRIBBLE BOARD 3

Note: Use the Internet Explorer 8 browser if you want to work on multiple scribble boards at once. With Internet Explore 8 you can create a drawing on more than one scribble board at once. Other browsers will erase the drawing when you switch between scribble boards.

Row Four Graphic Key Overview

The keys on row 4 your keyboard, that is the keyboard row fourth from the bottom (Q through BackSlash) will display closed curve shapes when pressed. Additionally, pressing the associated key graphic tab, above, will display a sample graphic and give instructions on how to use each key.

Close curve shapes belong to a family of shapes known as parametric curves. A close curved shape can be as simple as a circle or oval or as complex as compendium of interconnected loops, ovals, arches and curves.The triquetra is a popular design that is constructed from several closed loop shapes. Leaves are also examples of closed curve shapes.

Closed curved shapes that you choose from the graphic key library include circles, ovals, cardioid’s (heart shape), lemacon, nephroids (bean or kidney shaped), petal shapes and leaf shapes. You can create and explore thousands of closed curve shapes using the base shape after the graphic key is pressed. The control panels and text boxes let you control numerous different closed curve shape variables.

The closed curve scribble keys for closed curve shape generation include the Z key for circles and ovals, the , W key for lemacon, the E key for cardioids, the I key for nephroids. The P key for petal and flower like closed curves,

Limacon of Pascal, FashionExplorer, GeometryExplorer, MathExplorer, ShapeExplorer, ScribbleBoard, ShapeExplorer, Educational Software, Graphic Design SoftwareThe W Key: Limacon of Pascal

Shape Type: Closed Curve Intersection 1

Function: Pressing the W key in Scribble mode produces the Limacon of Pascal.

Applications: The Limacon of Pascal is the basis for new designs in mechanical engineering, such as blade designs and gear designs. It can also be used as the basis for architectural shapes, such as spiral staircases.

Outside of those realms, the Limacon is primarily used as a design shape in fashion it is used for hems, trims, borders, embellishments, stitches, ornaments and embroidery pieces. Variations of the Limacon, which can be created quickly with different settings, are discussed in the illustrations below,

Shape and Dimensions Control: The shape and dimensions of the Limacon of Pascal are controlled with values set in the Automatic Drawing Generator, Timing and Dimensions panels.In the Automatic Drawing Generator the value entered in the aHeight text box controls the overall area of the curve; the value of bHeight controls the size of the inner loop in the Limacon.

In the Timing panel, the value entered in the delta time text field controls the form of the circumference that makes the shape.

In the Dimensions panel, the linewidth text box is used to control the width of the line used to draw the Limacon. The value in the rotate text box, also in the Dimensions panel, sets the number of degrees the Limacon is rotated about its axis.

In the drawing on the left, created in Scribble Mode, the Limacon was created with a line width of 5 pixels and 0 degree rotation, an aHeight value of 42, a bHeight value of 22 and a delta Time value of 1.

 

 

 

Limacon of Pascal curve, Parametric CurveIn the drawing to the left, the width and height was increased on each successive limacon by increasing the value in the aHeight text box in the Automatic Drawing Generator panel. Values of 42, 52, 62 and finally 82 were used. All the other values in the other text boxes were kept the same. The color blue was selected from the color picker for this drawing.

As can be seen in the drawing, as the value of aHeight increases, the total area of the limacon increases as does the length of the inner loop. The inner loop however increases at a rate that is faster than the area of the limacon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Limacon Pascal Plot, Math Software, Varying the Size of the Inner Loop

In the drawing on the right, all the limacon values were held constant except the bHeight parameter in the Automatic Drawing Generator panel. Decreasing bHeight tends to increase the size of the inner loop and deceases the size of the outer loop. The figure on the far right has bHeight setting of 6 and the drawing on the far left has a bHeight setting of 22.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Limacon of Pascal Variations, Math Software, Plotting Sofware, ScribbleBoard, Fashion ExplorerThe limacons in the figure on the left were created by varying the Delta Time value in the Timing panel. All of the other limacon settings were held constant.

Higher values of delta time result in limacons that have a more linear (line like) nature. The limacon on the far left was created with a Delta Time value of 1. The second limacon was created with a Delta Time value of 5, the third with a delta time of 10 and the fourth with a delta time of 15. At a delta time of 20 (not shown), the limacon loses its curved nature and becomes a set of radiant lines.

If you set the linewidth to 1 pixel, the transformation from a curved limacon to a linear limacon is more visually pronounced.

spiral iconThe U Key: Spiral of Archimedes

Pink Spirals, Curved Spirals, Linear SpiralsShape Type: Open Curve Rotational

Function: Pressing the U key in Scribble mode draws the Spiral of Archimedes. The text box controls set the number of times the spiral turns, the linearity of the spiral, the orientation of the spiral and the line width that the spiral is created with.

Applications: The Spiral of Archimedes is used in fashion design and graphic design. Spirals are found in nature. The universe for example, has a spiral structure.

Dimensions and Shape Controls: Specified with text box values set in the Dimensions and Timing panels.

In the Timing Panel, the delta time value entered is used to specify the spiral's curvature. Values less than or equal to one produce a very curved spiral. As the delta time value is increased, the spiral becomes more linear. In the drawing on the right, the top value was drawn with a delta time value of 1, the middle spiral drawn with a delta time of 5 and the bottom spiral drawn with a delta time value of 10.

The value set in the timeUpper text box controls the number of spiral turns. The number of turns is roughly equal to the timeUpper valued divided by 10. In the drawing, timeUpper was set to 10 for all three spirals. Since 10 divided by 10 is 1, the spiral has one turn.

In the Dimensions Panel, the linewidth value entered is used to set the linewidth of the drawing and the value entered into the rotate text box is used to set the orientation of the spiral. In the drawing, all of the spirals were created with a line width of 5 pixels and a rotate value of 0.

Purple Spiral ArchimedasThe I Key: Fermet Spiral

. Shape Type: Open Curve Rotational

Function: Pressing the I key in Scribble mode draws a Fermet Spiral, which produces a spiral that winds tighter turns as the spiral moves from the center outward. The text box controls set the number of times the spiral turns, the linearity of the spiral, the orientation of the spiral and the line width that the spiral is created with. The height and the width of the spiral can also be controlled with the text box values.

Applications: The Fermet is used in fashion design and graphic design. Spirals are found in nature. The universe for example, has a spiral structure.

Dimensions and Shape Controls: Specified with text box values set in the Dimensions, Timing and Automatic Drawing Generation panels.

In the Timing Panel, the delta time value entered is used to specify the spiral's curvature. Values less than or equal to one produce a very curved spiral. As the delta time value is increased, the spiral becomes more linear. In the drawing on the right, a delta time value of 1 was used to create a very curved spiral

The value set in the timeUpper text box controls the number of spiral turns. The number of turns is roughly equal to the value set in the timeUpper text box. In the drawing, timeUpper was set to 3, which resulted in approximately a spiral with three turns.

In the Dimensions Panel, the linewidth value entered is used to set the linewidth of the drawing and the value entered into the rotate text box is used to set the orientation of the spiral. In the drawing, the spirals was created with a line width of 5 pixels and a rotate value of 0. A width of 50 pixels and a height of 25 pixels was used. An ECO is in process that will scale the spiral directly as a function of the width and height values. Presently, the height value is scaled by a factor of 2, requiring that the height entered be half of the actual height.

Gear Design, Black Holes, ScribbleBoard, Graphic Design SoftwareThe O Key: Oval Variations

 

Curve Type: Multiple Lines

Function: Creates a variety of fringed and needle oval shaped effects when the O key is pressed in Scribble mode.

Applications: Flower patterns, radiance effects.

Dimensions and Shape Controls: Specified with values set in the Sinusoid Curves, Timing, Automatic Drawing Generation and Dimensions Control panels.

In the Timing Panel, the delta time value entered is used to create lines in a circular radiant formation such that the lower the value of delta time, the more continuous the shape appears. Decreasing the upperTime value and lowering the value of the linewidth tends to thin out the needle like shapes in the design. The higher the value of the upperTime and the lower the value of the line width, the more fuller and realistic the needle flowers appear.

In the Dimensions Panel, the linewidth value entered is used to set the linewidth of the oval variant and the value entered into the rotate text box is used to set the orientation of the oval variant.

 

 

 

Flower shapesIn the drawing on the left, the value of timeUpper in the Timing panel was set to 100, 200, 300 and 400 to create the four different effects. All of the other text values were held constant.

The top left most image was created with a timeUpper value of 200. The imaged directly under was created with a value of 300, the third image down was created with a value of 400. As seen in the illustration, the image created with a setting of 400 is much fuller.

The images on the right were created with a timeUpper value of 100. As you decrease the value below 100, the number of lines used to create the images continue to decrease.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Circular StripesIn the image on the right, in the Timing panel, delta time values of 0.01, 0.02, 0.2, 0.5 and 1 were used to create the images. In the Sinusoid A repeat value of 3 was used. A line width of 2 pixels was also set in the Dimensions panel,

As the figures suggest, the lower the value of delta time the more complete the circular stripes in the figure are.

The top left most figure was created with a delta time value of 0.01, while the bottom left most figure was created with a delta time value of 0.5.

The figures on the right were created with a delta time value of 1. The top right figure used a pixel width of 1 pixel and the bottom right figure used a pixel width of 2 pixels.

SCRIBBLE BOARD 4

Content on this page requires a newer version of Adobe Flash Player.

Note: Use the Internet Explorer 8 browser if you want to work on multiple scribble boards at once. With Internet Explore 8 you can create a drawing on more than one scribble board at once. Other browsers will erase the drawing when you switch between scribble boards.

Row 3 Graphic Key Overview

The keys on row 3 your keyboard, that is the keyboard row third from the bottom (A through apostrophe) will display open curve shapes when pressed. Additionally, pressing the associated key graphic tab, above, will display a sample graphic and give instructions on how to use each key. The Scribble keys include keys A through the apostrophe key (A, S, D, F, G, H, J, K,L; (semicolon), ‘(apostrophe))

There are some other open curve keys on the second and fourth rows also. Although many of the open curve graphics look similar if the startup defaults text box values are used, the type of curve they generate will ultimately depend on the values set in the grayed out text boxes that control their dimensions, shape and repetition rate.

The open curves dimensions and orientation can be preset with the values entered in the width, height, linewidth and rotate text boxes in the dimensions panel.

 

Many of the other characteristics, such as the curvature of the curves, the number of repetitions of the curves and the number of peaks and valleys in the open curves are controlled with the text box value entries in the sinusoid curves panel, the timing panel, the automated drawing panel as well as the AM (amplitude modulation) and FM (Frequency modulation) panels

The repeat text box in the sinusoidal control panels, is most often used to control the number of times an open curve pattern will repeat itself within the horizontal distance specified in the width text box. If the repeat value is set to 1 and the width field in the dimensions panels is set to 100 pixels, for example, pressing the wave key (the A key), will produce one wave and that wave will extend a distance of 100 pixels. On the other hand, if the value in the repeat text box is set to 4 and the width is set to 100 pixels, the wave will repeat itself 4 times within the 100 pixel
distance. In other words, each wave will have a width of 25 pixels and there will be four waves.

Setting the repeat value to 1, and setting the width to 25 pixels and copying the pattern four times in pattern mode would be another way to complete the same operation. The advantage of using the repeat function is that it lets you create patterns much quicker, which is especially important in complex designs.

The repeat value can also be set to a value less than one. When the value is set to one-half(0.5) only one half of the waveform will be generated.

The phaseShift is another common property set for open curve images in the sinusoidal control panel. The phaseShift determines the starting point of the waveform. A phaseShift value of 0 will begin the wave pattern at its default starting point. A phaseShift of 180 degrees will generate the waveform such that its mid point is the default starting point. The phase shift is often set between 0 and 360 degrees. Setting the phase shift to 360 degrees will not result in any shifting of the default starting point.

Drawing Plotting Sine WaveThe A Key: Wave Maker

Shape Type: Open Curve Repeating Pattern

Function: When the A key is pressed in Scribble mode a wave shaped curve also know as a sine wave is drawn.

Applications: Used in representing physical phenomena such as sound and light waves. Also used in the construction of the anatomical elements such as hair and outlines of the human figure

Dimensions and Shape Control: Specified with the numerical values entered in width and height text boxes in the dimensions panel and the repeat, and phaseShift text boxes in the sinusoidal curve panel. The height value sets the height(or amplitude of the sine wave), the width value sets the period of the sine wave(in pixels). Repeat sets the number of times the sine repeats, or the cycles of the sine wave. PhaseShift sets the point at which the sine wave begins within its cycle.

In the top drawing on the left, the value of repeat in the Sinusoid curves was set to 4. This resulted in four cycles of the wave. The total length of the waves, that is the width of the waves was set to 200 pixels in the width text box in the Dimensions panel. This waveform has a frequency of 4 cycles per 200 pixels or 0.02 cycles per pixel.

In the bottom drawing on the left, the value of repeat in the Sinusoid curves was set to 1 and the width was set to 200 pixels. This resulted in one cycle of the wave drawn drawn over a period of 200 pixels. This waveform has a frequency of 1 cycle per 200 pixels or 0.005 cycles per pixel.

 

Plotting Phase Shifted Sine WaveIn the drawing on the right, two waveforms were drawn. The upper waveform was drawn with a phasehift setting of 0 degrees and the lower waveform was drawn with a phaseshift setting of 45 degrees. The two waveforms have the same frequency, same width and same amplitude. As the figure illustrates, the bottom waveform begins at a different point than the upper waveform. A 45 degree phase shift corresponds to a point that is 25 percent of the total wave form (there are 360 degrees in a wave form).

If you compare the point on the top wave form that is 1/4 of the distance to the right, it is the same point where the bottom waveform starts.

Flares, Graphic Design, Fashion Explorer, SoftwareThe G Key: Flare Maker

Shape Type: Open Curve

The Flare maker tool is used to creates a variety of different curves used to emphasize flare in the construction of clothes and general graphic designs. The curve modulation controls the slide of the flare. As the value of curve modulation is increased, the length of the slide is increased. Increased slide is used to create longer skirts with flare while decreased slide is used to create shorter skirts with flare.

Press the G button and examine the graphic created. Examine the text boxes that are highlighted in gray. The values in these text boxes control the dimensions and curvatures of the graphic created.

Flare Settings

For a flare set the values in the gray highlighted text boxes to

Dimension Panel Settings: Width = 100, Height = 50, linewidth = 1, rotate = 0

Sinusoid Curve Settings: Exponent Constant = 0.2, Base = 4

FM Panel Settings: Frequency Y = 2

Timing Controls Panel Settings: Delta Time = 0.1

AM Panel Settings: Curve Modulation = 23

Keeping these initial settings, change the value of curve modulation to construct various flares with different amounts of slide. The higher the value of curve modulation the longer the length of the skirt and the less the flare out. The lower the curve modulation value, the shorter the length of the skirt, and the longer the flare out. Keep all the settings from above.

Set Curve modulation = 50 Press the G key again.

Keep all the settings from above but set the curve modulation value to 10. Reposition your mouse and press the G key again.

SCRIBBLE BOARD 5

Note: Use the Internet Explorer 8 browser if you want to work on multiple scribble boards at once. With Internet Explore 8 you can create a drawing on more than one scribble board at once. Other browsers will erase the drawing when you switch between scribble boards.

The second row from the bottom of your keyboard (keys Z through the Period key) produce composite images that are composed of open and closed shapes, curves and lines.

The keys on this row are also used to produce spherical, rectangular and triangle patterns and grids. The pattern and gird tools are not only useful for the creation of graphic design objects but also as layout design tools and guides for more complex drawings. Specifically, the X key and C key can be used to create spherical grids for the design of faces and multi-colored spheres.

The automatic drawing generators can also be accessed on second row( keys V and B). Pressing the V key activates the wave library generator (open waves) and pressing the B key activates the parametric library generator (closed curves and lines) .

Lace maker, Fashion Design, Fashion Software, FashionExplorer, ShapeExplorerThe Comma Key (,): Lace Building Blocks

Shape Type: Open Curve Multiple

Applications: The lace tool is used for the construction of lace designs and butterflies. Different settings of the lace tool also make the tool useful for sketches of domes used in r the design of churches, grand palaces and modern, high technology architecture. Many alternative energy structures, such as solar pavilions, have designs based on patterned curvilinear structures that the lace tool produces.

Dimensions and Shape Controls: Pressing the comma key on your keyboard when in Scribble mode will generate an oversized lace object. For workable size lace the height text box in the Dimensions panel is usually set to one. Higher values result in widely different shapes as shown in the figures that follow.

For the drawings on the left, the height was set to 1 and the width set to 50, 100 and 200. The linewidth value was also set to 1. The result was three different lace structures with widths of 50 pixels, 100 pixels and 200 pixels.

Pattern Design, Square Wave, Duty CycleThe Period Key Ruler (.): Grid and Square Wave Pattern Maker

Applications: Square waves, or for that matter repeating series of perpendicular lines, are the basis for many fabric patterns, and fashion design compositions.

Square waves are one of the easier, faster and a more flexible methods to construct customized grids and rulers. ScribbleBoard's square wave maker can be used for the construction of grid and sewing diagrams for weaving, knitting and embroidery.

Besides fashion and general design, square waves are used extensively in the design and analysis of computers and digital electronic circuits. For that reason, technical illustrators often use the square tool to expedite the development of complex digital electronic timing specifications.

Function: Pressing the Period Key ( second row from the bottom) on your keyboard when in Scribble mode activates the square waveform tool.

Dimensions and Shape Controls: After pressing and releasing the period key, a square will appear on the ScribbleBoard. Additionally, the text boxes that are used to control the waveform will be highlighted in gray.

With controls in the Timing Panel and the Dimensions panel you can set the height of the

Triangle Wave, Sawtooth Waveform, PatternExplorer, ScribbleBoard, ShapeExplorer, FashionExplorer, Fashion DesignThe Forward Slash(/) Key: Triangle Waveform Generator

Applications: Used to create repeating triangle based patterns. Triangle waveforms or patterns form the basis of a number of fabric designs and fashion designs. Triangle waves are sometimes drawn on the circumference of a circle for ornate embroidery and jeweled necklaces. Triangle waves are also often woven into garments as a series of flowing triangle stitches. Strikingly colorful knits take advantage of the optical color illusions that series of directionally oriented triangle waveforms produce.

Besides fashion, the most other common use of triangle waves is in electronics. Triangle waveforms are central to many electronic applications and to the design of analog electronic circuits. For this reason, electronic instructors find ScribbleBoard's triangle wave form tool a great way to teach online as well as one of the most efficient ways to prepare class material.

Function: Pressing the forward slash key (second row from the bottom on your keyboard) in Scribble mode will activate the triangle wave maker tool. After pressing the forward slash key, a triangle waveform will appear on the ScribbleBoard. The text boxes that are used to control the dimensions and shape of the triangle waveform will be highlighted in gray.

Dimensions and Shape Controls: The text box control panels let you control how many times the waveform repeats, the length of the waveform, the height of the waveform and the duty cycle of the waveform, Duty cycle, a term that can be applied to many fields, for a triangle waveform is defined as the ration of upward distance of the triangle waveform to the total distance of one repeated cycle of the triangle waveform. The triangle waveform in the above figure has a 50 percent duty cycle because the horizontal distance of the upward slope has a horizontal distance that is 50 percent of the total length of one cycle of the waveform.

Setting the value in the repeat text box in the Sinusoid Curves Panel will control how many times the triangle wave repeats itself. In the example above, the repeat text value was set to 3 as can be seen in the Sinusoid Control panel.. This produced a triangle wave with three repetitions,

In the Timing Panel, time Lower sets the number of pixels that the wave ascends, Time Upper controls the number of pixels that the wave will descend (the length of the negative slope). The height of the waveform is controlled with the height text box

SCRIBBLE BOARD 6

Note: Use the Internet Explorer 8 browser if you want to work on multiple scribble boards at once. With Internet Explore 8 you can create a drawing on more than one scribble board at once. Other browsers will erase the drawing when you switch between scribble boards.

The keys on row 1 your keyboard, that is the very bottom row on keyboard (CTRL, ALT, SPACEB"AR and ARROW keys) let you perform operational functions such as erasing the entire screen (the SpaceBar), toggling on and off quick erase and quick color modes (ALT) and incrementing and decrementing values in the text box controls (the up, down, left and right arrows).

The ALT Key:Quick Erase Mode Toggle Key

When in Quick Erase mode, press ALT to switch to click Delete mode. In Roll Over Delete mode, objects are removed from the design board as you roll the mouse cursor over them. Pressing ALT when erasing permits you to roll over objects without erasing them. “Unlike traditional design programs, when in erase (delete) mode, you don’t keep the mouse button depressed, instead you enter erase roll over button and just sweep the mouse cursor over the object. You press ALT to exit roll over erase instead of pressing the mouse button.
