Star Polygon Generator

Hello.  I am new to the forums, and I wanted to share my Star Polygon Generator (the link is above) that I thought others may find interesting.  It has been available for awhile, but I have never really told anyone about it.  I hope you enjoy it (please "Like" it if you do in fact like it, and also "Like" the Facebook page for it).  The main features I assume most people would be interested in are:

* Randomize button alters the parameters for you.
* Display Star Properties shows the math of the current star.
* Show Breakdown shows each individual star and allows you to view it and its mathematics.
* Download Vector Graphics buttons allows you to download an .svg version of the star for infinite zooming/scaling.

Any feedback is welcome!

Re: Star Polygon Generator

Hi Ardentum;

Welcome to the forum. Thanks for the page.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.
