Flemish Bond Cal Assistance

Hello All,

I have been attempting to understand the library brick.cal procedure with
the aim to develop a new procedure for flemish bond brickwork. Unfortunately
the information in RWR (edition 1) assumes more background than I have.

For those unfamiliar, a flemish brick bond has each course consists of
alternating faces and ends, with each successive course offset by 50%.... Or
in ascii art it might look like...

Often the end blocks are a different colour/material.

Any clues to understanding the original brick.cal file based on a stretcher
bond (half brick overlap) would be appreciated if I am going to be able to
create a new flemish.cal procedure.

Hello there,

Is there a *.cal procedure out there for generating a weave mesh ?

(Metal meshes seem to become more and more popular as architectural cladding these days...)

Regards Jochen
