TactiPad CircleFrame introduction
This first video shows the different features that make up the CircleFrame, the drawing tools that are supplied with the CircleFrame, how it can be positioned on the TactiPad and how to use the different indicators as a basis for your drawings.
Creating pie charts
This next video shows how the clearly defined tactile degrees indicators along the inner edge of the circle in the CircleFrame can be combined with the wedge-shaped tool to create accurate pie charts.
Drawing a clock
Using the slots in the wedge-shaped tool you can easily draw the hands of a clock, as explained in this next video.
Drawing circles with the compasses inside the CircleFrame
This next video shows the different ways in which the compasses can be used to make beautiful circular patterns or concentric circles within the CircleFrame.
Drawing zigzag patterns
The largest of the three drawing tools that come with the CircleFrame consists of a triangle with different templates on all sides. This video shows how this tool can be combined with the CircleFrame to create interesting overlapping patterns.
Using rubber bands as a flexible radial grid
When the notches around the outside of the CircleFrame are combined with rubber bands, you can a grid of radial lines as guidelines for your drawings, as can be seen in this video.
By making different cardboard templates you can draw elegant repeating and overlapping patterns. This video shows how the small triangle can be used as a reference to make your own templates.
