Welcome to the download section of my homepage. Here, you can download some useful tools and tutorials in order to make planning and building your own domino projects easier. Attention: All downloads are supposed to only be found on this page. This means that it is not allowed to include them on your homepage. Of course, a link to this page would be appreciated.
Mathematical stuff (in German only)
As my studies of Computer Science also deal a lot with mathematical topics, I have written some mathematical essays about dominorelated subjects and post them here.
 For a long time, the question of how many dominoes are needed to build a threedimensional n x n pyramid has been circulating in the domino community. However, the algorithm for that is quite simple: when a 3Dpyramid has a length and width of n dominoes on the floor, the number of dominoes needed in total can be calculated with D = (n*n) + (n*(n1)) + ((n1) * (n1)) + ((n1) * (n2)) + ... + (2 * 1) + (1 * 1). I have implemented this algorithm in my 3Dpyramid calculation application downloadable on the bottom of this page. Annodomino, however, found a compact formula for the same issue without any iterative calculations which I have mathematically and formally proven in the following essay using the method of mathematical induction: here.
 Another hot topic, also because there is a related category at Guinness World Records, is the question of how many dominoes are needed for a 2Dwall with height h and length l using the common building method. I have dedicated this essay to that topic.
Fieldplanner
Fieldplanner is a software for planning domino fields developed by me. It works on the basis of Microsoft Office Excel which means that every time when you start the planner, you have to activate macros in ordert to start the application. You then have the possibility to draw a domino field (toppling horizontally or vertically), to count its colors, to compare the colors counted to the dominoes you have at home, to print a field preview and to create the field protocol which is in my opinion the most powerful function.
The field protocol shows you exactly how many dominoes of each color have to be set up in order to build the field drawn before. In the field protocol on the right hand side, for example, you would have to set up nine yellow, four black and another 67 yellow dominoes for the second row. In a personalized field protocol, you can enter the size of your domino ruler which then will be indicated by green lines in the protocol.
User information
 In order to make Fieldplanner work properly, Microsoft Office Excel 2007 or later is required. Older versions work in most cases, but might lead to some errors.
 I also made two video tutorials for different versions: tutorial version 3.0  tutorial version 3.1
 Apart from that, there is a detailed handbook in both German and English, for version 3.4, there is an additional document outlining the new functions in English only.
 From version 3.4 on, Fieldplanner will only be continued in English.
 A huge thank you to Dimas (YouTube: dominololzz) for translating Fieldplanner 3.5 to Dutch.

Calculation applications
Based on the tutorials for 2D and 3Dpyramids introduced in the download category before, I have developed the following calculation applications. It is already enough to only enter the number of dominoes touching the ground and the total number of dominoes needed for the 2D or 3Dpyramid will be shown together with some interesting additional information.
