    Default trouble with nested for(loops)

    ok guys, so i have a program due tomorrow that is supposed to print, (just pretend that the lines on the right side are straight)

    +---------+
    | * |
    | /*\ |
    | //*\\ |
    | ///*\\\ |
    | \\\*/// |
    | \\*// |
    | \*/ |
    | * |
    +---------+
    | \\\*/// |
    | \\*// |
    | \*/ |
    | * |
    | * |
    | /*\ |
    | //*\\ |
    | ///*\\\ |
    +---------+

    so far i have this, which will print the top half of the diamond, my question is, how do i essentially flip my code upside down to print the bottom?

    public static void main(String[] args) {
    line();
    triangleTop();
    }

    public static void line() {
    System.out.print("+");
    for (int i = 1; i <= size * 2 + 1; i++) {
    System.out.print("-");
    }
    System.out.print("+");
    System.out.println();
    }

    public static void triangleTop() { // prints the top half of the triangle as
    // well as the lines along either side
    //* of it/*
    for (int i = 1; i <= size; i++) {
    System.out.print("|");
    for (int j = 1; j <= size + 1 - i; j++) {
    System.out.print(" ");
    }
    for (int d = 2; d <= i; d++) {
    System.out.print("/");
    }
    System.out.print("*");
    for (int e = 1; e <= i - 1; e++) {
    System.out.print("\\");
    }
    for (int f = 1; f <= size + 1 - i; f++) {
    System.out.print(" ");
    }
    System.out.print("|");
    System.out.print("\n");
    }
    }
    }

    thanks!
