shape_superformula


Returns shape points of a Superformula shape. They can be used with xxx_extrude modules of dotSCAD. The shape points can be also used with the built-in polygon module.

Parameters

  • phi_step : The phi step of Superformula.
  • m1, m2, n1, n2, n3, a, b : The parameters of Superformula. The default value of n2, n3, a, and b is 1.

Examples

include <shape_superformula.scad>;   

phi_step = 0.05;

polygon(shape_superformula(phi_step, 3, 3, 4.5, 10, 10));
translate([3, 0]) 
    polygon(shape_superformula(phi_step, 4, 4, 12, 15, 15));
translate([6, 0]) 
    polygon(shape_superformula(phi_step, 7, 7, 10, 6, 6));
translate([9, 0]) 
    polygon(shape_superformula(phi_step, 5, 5, 4, 4, 4));

translate([0, -4]) 
    scale(0.8) polygon(shape_superformula(phi_step, 5, 5, 2, 7, 7));
translate([3, -4]) 
    scale(0.25) polygon(shape_superformula(phi_step, 5, 5, 2, 13, 13));
translate([6, -4]) 
    polygon(shape_superformula(phi_step, 4, 4, 1, 1, 1));
translate([9, -4]) 
    scale(0.3) polygon(shape_superformula(phi_step, 4, 4, 1, 7, 8));
