Input the rectangle inside dimensions - height and width and the circles outside diameters.

Default values are for *0.5 inch* circles inside a *10 inch x 10 inch* square. The calculator is generic and any kind of units can be used - as long as the same units are used for all values.

### Rectangular Pattern

### Triangular Pattern

**Note!**

- In some combinations of rectangular shapes and circles sizes - one or two more circles may be added with a minor modification of the circles layout. In the default triangular example above - two more circles can be added in between if the left and right bottom circles are moved to the left and right border
