Some Circular Designs (Page 6)

 
Although we began with designs in which our wedges were arranged next to one another to exactly complete a pie, the size and spacing of wedges need not be simply related. Consider the following figure, for example, where each wedge forms a 40° angle at the center of the figure, but the wedges are arranged with 45° angles between corresponding edges (as earlier, click on a design to see a larger image):

Segments = 10, Wedges = 8, Levels = 3, Angle = 40°
Segments = 10, Wedges = 8, Levels = 3, Angle = 40°

Here, we have increased the angle at the vertex of each wedge to 50°, which produces only a small degree of overlap of wedges:

Segments = 10, Wedges = 8, Levels = 3, Angle = 50°
Segments = 10, Wedges = 8, Levels = 3, Angle = 50°

In this figure, one I particularly like for some reason, the wedge has been increased to 80°:

Segments = 10, Wedges = 8, Levels = 3, Angle = 80°
Segments = 10, Wedges = 8, Levels = 3, Angle = 80°
