Diagonal (Style) Rapport System and Its Features
Diagonal rapport used in the reporting of patterns using motifs that need to be arranged in small areas is basically the same as the soter rapport. The only difference is that shifts in one direction can be made not only in 1/2, but also in 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, 1/6 and 1/7 ratios. At the same time, the shift can be either to the right or to the left of the rapport. These choices are determined by the person who makes the design according to the structure of the pattern.
Diagonal rapport is a suitable rapport type for block patterns that maintain uniform and the same shape. Irregular diagonal rapports are also used today. These are made with integer values that are not exactly divisible (For example, 1/340, 1/520 etc.).
Pattern Application According to Diagonal (Style) Rapport System
1-Unit report dimensions are determined.
2- With the help of drawing tools, the rapport square is drawn as four axes. Then, additional axes are drawn according to what diagonal the rapport will be. While drawing additional axes, it is determined to which side and at what rate the pattern will slide diagonally. According to this ratio, two more axes are drawn. It has a total of six axles as in the half rapport, but the slip rate is different.
First, it is checked by overlapping the axles on opposite sides (overlapping AB axles and EF axles). Then, according to the rate at which the pattern will slide, the diagonal axes are overlapped (AC and DF - BD and CE axes). Since the slips in the axes will cause slips in the pattern in the rapport repetition, they should be seated correctly.
3- A pattern is drawn inside the unit report area.
Appropriate arrangements are made for the motifs that extend beyond the rapport in the pattern, as in the previous rapport drawings. Only the diagonal shift ratio should be paid attention to, and the shifts to the corresponding corners should be done carefully.
4-The pattern is shifted to the side at the applied rate.
5-Then it is shifted to the top like a full rapport.
6-The report can be reproduced in width and length as desired.
