It extends a 2D stroke along a path to create a 2D shape. This module is suitable for a path created by a continuous function. The returned points can be used with xxx_extrude modules of dotSCAD. The shape points can be also used with the built-in polygon module.

When using this function, you should use points to represent the 2D stroke.

It depends on the `rotate_p`

function. Remember to include “rotate_p.scad”.

## Parameters

`stroke_pts`

: A list of points represent a stroke. See the example below.`path_pts`

: A list of points represent the path.`scale`

: Scales the 2D shape by this value over the length of the extension.`closed`

: If the first point and the last point of`path_pts`

has the same coordinate, setting`closed`

to`true`

will connect them automatically.

## Examples

```
include <rotate_p.scad>;
include <shape_path_extend.scad>;
include <circle_path.scad>;
include <archimedean_spiral.scad>;
$fn = 96;
stroke1 = [[-5, 2.5], [-2.5, 0], [0, 2.5], [2.5, 0], [5, 2.5]];
path_pts1 = circle_path(50, 60);
polygon(
shape_path_extend(stroke1, path_pts1)
);
stroke2 = [[-4, 0], [0, 4], [4, 0]];
pts_angles = archimedean_spiral(
arm_distance = 17,
init_angle = 180,
point_distance = 5,
num_of_points = 85
);
translate([120, 0, 0])
polygon(
shape_path_extend(
stroke2,
[for(pa = pts_angles) pa[0]]
)
);
```
