    It seems that this blend has an issue with newer versions of blender. You will have to remove the rotation from the empty, and enable auto run scripts for it to work as expected.

    @MiD-AwE I installed every version of Blender going back to 2.49 as they came out. They don't take up much room and it allows me to open and edit any model.

    This is an impressive piece of work.

    I read the whole Blender Artists thread ID 243551.

    I don't understand the concept of zero-point energy, despite http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero-point_energy.

    But the pattern produced would make it easy for colouring a child's inflatable swimming ring with a nice swirl design, say two diamond's width for each band, just going one way.

    I could accomplish this by selecting faces manually but wondered (only idly) if there were a mathematical formula that would select these diagonal bands.

    You may find this tip helpful. Follow these steps:

    First:

    Add>Torus

    (Keep it selected the whole time)

    Then:

    Properties>Modifiers>Add modifier>Subdivision surface

    Catmul clark algorithm (default setting)

    Subdivisions: 2

    Apply modifier

    Finally:

    Properties>Modifiers>Add modifier>Decimate

    Change the setting to Un-Subdivide

    Iterations: 1

    Apply modifier

    VoilĂ .

    @FayZee, no formula that I know of.

    I finally found some time to convert this for Blender 2.8. Found @ blendswap.com/blend/25794

    I finally updated this on to work under blender versions under 2.8. This one is compatible with existing web exporters.
