The aim of this thesis is to show how the use of parity in tandem with the triangular grid as well as a newly introduced and similar method are insufficient to provide proof for why convex regions composed using the full set of shapes known as "proper tridrafters" have a portion shifted in a fashion known as against-the-grain. These two methods are applied in a combinatorial fashion.
