What are the commands to tesselate one equilateral triangle and two regular dodecagons. which is the vertex figure
Tesselated figures always share legs, so there cannot be two different dodecagons. But the tesselation of a dodecagon and a equalateral triangle is shown in the attached project.
I have little doubt this project could be substantially improved. It is not based on any deep understanding of tessallation, but is more of a brute force drawing generator. It will make the tessellation with user-provided leg lengths up to about 25. Larger than that, and you get into "wrap" problems that make the drawing confusing.
