If you don't mind. How do you get the results you got. You don't have to make an in depth tutorial or anything. Just a quick tutorial will be fine if you want. Thanks Lazur URH!
brynn wrote:Well, it's not really worthy of a new thread. It's 100% trial and error. Start with....for example, the numbers you used for the rounded star in your other topic. Or just any numbers Use the live preview. The change the numbers, 1 whole unit, or even 1 tenth, at a time. Sometimes, a change of just 1 tenth, can result in a drastic change of the spirogram that's produced. When you get one you like, click Apply. And also don't forget to switch the Gear Placement (Inside or Outside), because that can also drastically change the result.
Math whizzes, who understand the formulas, can probably produce what they need, just because they understand the formula. But I'm not that. I'm all trial and error. And I should probaly say, it takes a lot of patience. Because on my system, Inkscape crashes if I try to put more than 6 to 8 spirograms in a file (depending on their sizes). I'll be all engrossed what's happening to the spirograms, as I adjust the numbers, and forget about the 6 to 8 limit. Then Inskcape crashes, and I can't get the numbers back that I was using.
When one of those 3 numbers is less than 10, and especially less than 5, that's when those wavy patterns, and other weird things, show up. And that's about all I can say!
