I learned recently of Chaikin’s Algorithm, a method for rounding off the corners of a polygon. The algorithm works like this:
Twoville has given me a playground to experiment with algorithms like this. I added a new shape environment called
ungon for generating these rounded polygons. Following are a couple of my first tests.
A couple of years ago I experimented with making blobby circuitous random walks with turtle geometry. Chaikin’s algorithm is far simpler.
