A zigzag is a line pattern that results when diagonal straight lines combine at opposite points. By definition, a zigzag is a line or progression featuring pointed turns from one side to another.
A simple method for creating a zigzag line is to start within a two-dimensional surface and draw a diagonal straight line at a 45-degree angle. An arrangement of these diagonal lines connecting at opposite points from left to right results in a zigzag pattern. This method only requires a 45-degree angle for lucidity purposes. In reality, it is possible to create zigzag lines beginning with straight lines traveling in any direction.
