Big thanks to #fouriestseries and #spring-of-mathmatics for the recent post and reblog on Reuleaux Polygons. This isn’t an odd-sided Reuleaux polygon of constant width, described so well here


…but it did get me thinking about some geometry I’ve been curious about for some time and inspired me to do something with the concept. I had to do this one by hand, I am trying to sort out how generate the shape in Processing. The challenge is calculating the center points of the arcs that pass through the corners… it is straightforward I am sure but I can’t see the solution yet.
