Gallery of New Geom-e-Tree and Twee ThemesThis is a gallery of new themes we've added to Geom-e-Tree and Twee. Screenshots are from Tree unless otherwise noted (Twee). All Twee themes are included with Tree. Geom-e-Tree 1.3 has over 40 themes total.
Still images can't convey the dynamic you see when a tree's trunk and branches swell up as the tree is moved, or a swarm of nodes move from one pattern to another.
Please note — Things Change. A theme used here may have changed slightly since a screenshot was made, so the same exact image might not be reproduced with Geom-e-Tree 1.3. We will update this gallery as time permits. (It doesn't contain any screenshot of Version 1.2 themes!)
You can Like the GeomeTreeApp Facebook page, to keep up with developments.
Allometric LinesAllometric themes decrease (or increase) length AND width of lines by the common ratio. Two themes offer a choice of round or square line endcaps.
103Interesting white space formed between the branches. [2,27°,1.603].
107The classic binary tree!
110Very delicate. It's interesting the way the tips of the branches line up with the sides of the branches.
188Ternary Leaf? [3,108°,1.615]
222A pattern replicated by many with computer graphics over the years. Also a 3D sculptural form.
Allometric and Cellular DotsDot themes show a variable- or fixed-size dot at each node of the tree. No lines are drawn. This theme is incredible. You may see all the dots merge into just a few, or arrange themselves in groups. When you "move" away from those arrangements, the groupings explode and the dots move on their way to some other such arrangement / grouping. This movement is apparent in some of the in-between shots.
I went a little overboard with dots. They may not look like much here... In many of these, thousands of dots are piled up under the few dots you see, in what I call a
113Binary Tree, 345°, with common ratio nearly 1. Both Allometric and Cellular themes produce the same pattern. (CR=1.0 results in same sized dots.)
136Allometric Dots. Interesting spaces left inside hexagonal clusters. [3, 120°, 1.042]
137Allometric Dots. This begs explanation! (Hint: it's #136 with a lower Common Ratio.)
138Allometric Dots neatly coincide!
142Cellular Dots starting to move away from a coincidence as the angle is changed.
144Allometric Dots. I like the fields that seem to form around higher level nodes. See also 149 below.
149Starting from a quinternary tree with the perfect reduction factor in Allometric Node theme, you see almost nothing. As you pinch the display, you feel like you are grabbing the fabric of the universe as form materializes out of thin air. #154 shows how this coalesces.
154A coincidence. 5 Branches, 72°, Common Ratio is 0.995. Many dots piled up.
1462D hierarchical structure. Looks like an oriental rug. When I first saw this it looked Chinese (I Ching) or perhaps like a perforated card of some kind.
151One might expect to see a pentagram figure inside a pentagon formed by a 5-ary tree.
160I love how the subtle difference in dot size communicates information.
162This is #160 above with slight change in CR.
214Fundamental Particles. Binary tree, 180° common ratio is 0.958!
218Fundamental Particles theme. Look. See hidden dots? (I purposely made CR off just a bit so they are not perfectly stacked up.)
192Fundamental Particles theme.
219Fundamental Particles theme.
217Juggler theme (Twee). This is a binary tree at 240° with CR 0.994. See #250 below.
250Juggler theme (Twee). This is #217 at 250°... 10° different. You can see dots that were hidden in #217, and how they are moving away from that coincidence.
Branching OrderThis theme colors Left vs Right, Left vs Middle vs right, ...
202Ternary Tree. Here you can see that red goes straight ahead, while white goes left, and black goes right.
173I'd say at least a branching factor of 6.
175Obviously a binary tree. Which color is left, which is right? Hint: See #184, 176, or 177.
184What does this remind you of?
176Exercise left for the reader.
178Haven't figured out what's going on here yet. Line caps will be rounded in the released version. See #185 below.
185Branching Order theme for Twee. Uses shadows since there are just a few lines to draw..
174Twee theme. Line caps will be rounded in the released version. See #185 above.
201Twee theme, but running in Tree can have 4 branches.
190Nice sea shell fractal pattern in the blackened areas.
210Left and Right nicely sorted out.
204I'm waiting for you to explain how a three-branched tree can make this five-pointed star. [3,144°,0.5].
209Ternary Tree, 90°, Common Ratio 0.500.

215No Notes Yet.
216No Notes Yet.
Lines and Nodes ThemesThese themes consist of fixed-width lines with fixed-radius dots or circles at nodes.
119Branching Nodes theme.
120Branching Nodes theme.
121Twee's Ball & Stick theme.
Other, Unique Themes
251Green Phosphor - Tektronix 4010 CRT Graphics Terminal
252Demo Tree - This is the Tree used in 'Geom-e-Tree in Action' on YouTube
253Twiggy (Twee) - Like the India Ink theme, but with red twigs!
Late ArrivalsI came up with the
Dendritic Group Theory(DGT) theme on February 19th, 2013! It's fun to see the little vectors zipping around as the tree moves.
254DGT. Ternary tree... you can see how each node points to the nodes it is connected to. Well, if you start in the middle anyway!
255DGT. Five-branched tree.
256DGT. This is a binary tree. I love the way some of the nodes are lined up around the borders of the pattern.
257Plastic Links theme. 2/21/2013. Uses alpha transparency of 70%. Palette may change. I've decided to include in Twee (as well as Tree).
More New Themes!
261Colored Wafers - Circles are centered at branch midpoints, with the branch as the diameter!
262Cosmic Circles - same geometry as Colored Wafers.
263Three Ring Circus - same geometry as Colored Wafers. (With 3700 rings... should just be 370!)
264Diametric Colored Nodes - Circles are centered at nodes, but with diameters equal to length of branches on next level. Got that?
265Graph Theoretic - Classic Graph Theory - Trees with black nodes & edges. Twee will have Jr Graph Theory.
266This theme is fun to play with because leaf-nodes-on-other-branches creates surprising geometric figures. The whole is greater than the parts. What about those nodes in the middle of the star? Where did they come from? I guess you'll just have to try it and see.
147The Send/Save tab of Geom-e-Tree. Note the new Tab Bar icons for Help and Themes. These were done for PolygonFlux by Gus Miller. He did the Tree and Arboretum icons for the current version of Tree.
165Another Send/Save tab of Geom-e-Tree.
193Colorful Arboretum! This shows how the thumbnail images now accurately represents all geom-e-trees. Version 1.2 did not do so well.
