## pinterrm – HW4

*May 10, 2015 by pinterrm. Filed under cs455, postmortems, spring 2015.*

My original thought was to design some sort of leaf like structure that slowly rotated upwards. I dropped this idea a while after starting because I didn’t like the look of anything I was coming up with.

I then settled on trying to design something that I might like to see 3d printed. Here is what I came up with. I challenged myself to create two items, one existing inside the other.

HereĀ is a 5 pointed star, drawn 4 times centered inside a open faced sphere

The code is as follows

`pi = 3.1415`

`push`

push

moveto 0,0,0

pitch 90

repeat 9

move 2

repeat 9

pitch pi*pi

move 2

end

yaw 90

pitch pi*2

move pi//2.3

yaw 90

repeat 10

move 2

pitch pi*pi

end

pitch -10

yaw -pi*47

end

pop

moveto 0,0,0

moveto 0,10,0

scaleFactor = 4

repeat 2

pitch 54

move 5

pitch 36*6

move 4.045*2

pitch 36*4

move 5+4.045

pitch 36*-4

length = 10.59

move length

pitch 36*4

move length

pitch 36*6

move 4.045

pitch 54

roll 90

end

pop

moveto 0,25,0

pitch 180

roll 24

pitch 90

repeat 9

move 2

repeat 9

pitch pi*pi

move 2

end yaw 90

pitch pi*2

move pi//2.3

yaw 90

repeat 10

move 2

pitch pi*pi

end

pitch -10

yaw -pi*47

end

nsides = 10
