    Egg, I see that happening.

    Your SVG has a size of width="666.001" height="385.001".
    I trimmed these to width="666" height="385" and the lines were much reduced.
    Sorry Acorn, missed that post. I agree with what you're stating there, however I noticed the exported svg pixel sizes when opening in Inkscape. The cutting 'rectangle' within Xara states whole (integer) pixels but the export gives decimal place W x H. I've tried many methods to reduce this effect i.e. reducing the svg size in Inkscape to whole units an re-saving. but the incomplete tiling remains. I can reduce it but it's never perfect. Sometimes it is but often it's not.

    I'll try your method of restricting the image to the square root of three but this is very restrictive. Just endevouring to get the 'cutting' rectangle above a vector shape is hit and miss re tiling. I can easily achieve it using png's but not simple at all using Xara generated svg's :-(

    Nice one Keith.

    Does it matter how it's created?
    Not really but the point of the challenge was to use Acorn's method of an svg image which I was very reluctant at first to try. But it works and creates a truly scalable background that you can zoom in and out of.

    Keith, to a certain extent, it does.
    The key premise clearly has to be does it work for you.

    The Challenge is trying to focus on two concepts: a canonical form and high fidelity.
    Both contribute to making smaller image files.

    In your case, the canonical for could be any 128 x 128 px overlap on top of your mesh as your pattern repeats at this interval.

    These two PNGs can be used as examples:

    Name:  cross.png
Views: 79
Size:  15.1 KB or Name:  cage.png
Views: 80
Size:  15.2 KB

    In then picking Set as Pasteboard background, you get the same coverage as your Chain Link file.

    Building either of these as vector shapes/glyphs and saving as a SVG delivers the high fidelity and scaling that makes them stand out.

    The ABCs of Tiling Backgrounds - I often create repeating patterns for my stereograms so I tried this pattern for a stereogram as well.

    Here is a drop-dead simple one, inspired from Egg's CodePen link.
