Tiling has been a mainstay of generative art for many decades. Truchet tiles are one of the first tiling methods that were actively studied. Truchet tiles are capable of producing interesting art and patterns, but are somewhat limited in the variations due to the fact that 4 sided tiles are used.
Recent research in Truchet tilings have produced Generalized Hexagonal Truchet Tiles. Hexagonal Truchet tiles triple the number of potential tiles and hence produce much greater variation. In fact, even with small tilings, the range of variation is essentially infinite.
Hex Truchets uses Hexagonal Truchet tiles with a large number of palettes and other rarity traits to produce unique works of art. Each print will be entirely unique in the patterns generated.
The rarity traits include a layout trait which is the tendency of a tiling to favor left, right, or centered patterns. There is a 5% chance of getting a left or right layout, and a 1% chance of getting a centered layout. The common layout is called a mixed layout. And, there is a one in 500 chance of getting the very rare wide paths with a centered layout. With the size of the current mint, there should be 1 or 2 of these ultra rare prints created.
Remember, Hex Truchets are produced on demand directly from the Ethereum blockchain. You will have access to your print forever, or as long as the Ethereum blockchain exists, whichever comes first!
After you mint, you can view your print immediately on OpenSea.
On Chain means no dependencies on anything other than the Ethereum blockchain.
On chain art is vital to the integrity of NFTs on Ethereum. What happens to the art if the company it was minted from ceases to exist? In many cases, you may not know. But you should know, and the only way you can be certain that the art will exist forever is if it is truly on chain.
On chain art comes directly from the Ethereum blockchain on demand. It is returned in a standardized NFT metadata format that any vendor such as Rarible can understand. Further, you can even display on chain art by pasting the payload directly in a browser!
Many NFTs have enormous value. On chain art is the only way to guarantee the integrity of your NFTs forever into the future.
On chain NFTs have been very limited for several reasons, mostly related to lack of knowledge of how the EVM works. We have achieved astounding results because:

These are our values, in order.
