Discover a world beyond limits.

The iOrnament Crafter is an app that allows you to create transformations and deformations of geometric patterns. Not only does it come with a huge collection of gorgeous patterns, but you can also import seamless ornamental art from the iOrnament App, or, with an in-app purchase, import your own photos! The Crafter lets you create new artwork from these images in various ways:

Build 3D Models:
– create ornamental platonic solids
– experience kinematic kaleidocycles
– give them a unique touch by your own artwork

Create videos and animated gifs:
– use artwork or photos to create moving spirals
– create mesmerising infinity loop videos
– export as animated gifs or videos

Explore kaleidoscopes:
– put your art in a kaleidoskope
– generate kaleidoscopic animations
– experience Eschers world of circle limits

Mathematical transformations:
– apply conformal maps
– create loxodromic double spirals
– let your photos deform into fractal like shapes

– create personalised 3D objects
– use artwork and photos to create animated greeting cards
– decorate your Christmas tree with unique objects:-)
– give geometry workshops for children
– play, play, play
– relax
– ......

The Crafter can be used as a stand alone app, but it is also the perfect post processing companion for the symmetry drawing app iOrnament.

A very cool sequel to IOrnament!

If you love iOrnament you will love this because it is an extension of that app although owning IOrnament, is not required. Again, it's about making math cool, accessible and artistic. You can make cool, ornate gifs and movies you can save and share as well as create beautifully decorated, 3 dimension objects and print out the patterns that can be folded into whatever shape you desire. I believe you can import artwork from (iOrnament, for sure) and elsewhere, as well but cannot guarantee that part. I do believe the ability is like a one time IAP of 99cents or something close to that. In other words, super cheap for everything you receive :) Love it; love all of this developer's apps.

Meticulously and cleverly engineered app

I love the cohesiveness of this app and the iOrnament app. It works best with the iOrnament Pro as it switches back to the pro version if it’s installed on the device. I have both versions of iOrnament on my devices. I have been using them interchangeably. I’m more accustomed to the older version. The text on the interface of the newer version is harder for me to read.

But now I have a new problem: I am unable to save files or videos, since I have upgraded the iOS software to 16.1. So that needs to be resolved hopefully very soon. The best I’m able to do is to make screenshots of the 3D shape layouts. I haven’t tried printing them directly yet. I’ve been taking files to a copy shop for laser prints.

My favorite game!! ,

This is sooooo cool!!! 👍👍👍👍👍

I have never came across an app that you could have so much fun with! Not only is a VERY kid friendly....but me as adult am loving it too! So I'm sure other adults will as well. I think it's so cool that you can play with this on your iPad or whatever device you prefer and then print it out and have even more fun constructing your creation and playing with it. It's absolutely perfect for parents and kids to do together as a family activity. There are endless possibilities for the creations you can make. So cool. I cant hype this app up enough! Thanks to the creator for this awesome masterpiece!!!! Well done! 10 stars!!
