Bringing it Together
We're now going to bring together everything we've used in this chapter to create our final image and close out this part of the book.
We've built a whole raft of methods that all work with a common abstraction of
Angle => Point functions.
For example, we can use
on, which we developed to compose wheels, with any parametric curve.
In the example below we have a rose curve rotating around (
on) a Lissajous curve, which gives an interesting curve that would be difficult to come up with by hand.
Placing a wheel on a Lissajous curve also gives an interesting result.
Remember we're not restricted to interpolating splines. Here's the same curve, but I'm drawing circles at selected points (where the size and color of the circle depends on the angle).
Now it's over to you. Give yourself a good chunk of time and, using the tools we've made, create an image that you're proud of to mark completion of this part of the book.
