Default Triangulations

I saw that there is now a Triangulations 4.0. However, I cannot find it anywhere and don't want to purchase the 3.0. Has anyone found it yet or purchased it?

I googled it and found several sites selling it. Here's one (scroll down a bit):

Can you explain what Triangulations is/does?

That looks cool. What kind of paper do you use to print them out on? (If that's indeed what happens...)

Triangulations is a disc that you can load into your computer, then print out sheets of half-square triangles. You can use regular photocopy paper or you can use the newsprint type, if your printer likes that kind of paper. I have printed Triangulations using Carol Doak PP paper on both a lazer and ink jet printer.

Thanks for the help! I may have to put this on my letter to Santa (or "self-Santa it, lol!)

I have the old original Triangulations and just use regular copy paper. Wouldn't think of doing HST's without triangulations. Best invention since sliced bread.

I love, love, LOVE Triangulations software! I print it out on those scribble tablets from the Dollar Tree (40 sheets/$1). The sheets are a little too wide for my printer, so I trim them off.

Triangulations is GREAT because EVERY HST come out perfect every time, no trimming up, no squaring up needed. When making Celtic Solstice, the HST were to be 1 1/2" finished and with Triangulations, I could make 24 at a time!

To me, it is a great investment. The software also contains flying geese. I only have 3.0 version, so this new one will have to wait...

You can get 8 1/2 x 11 newsprint from Dick Blick. I got 2 reams - because the shipping was the same as for 1 ream. It is so easy to tear the newsprint off!
