Playing around with geometric figures is fun. Some of the simplest possible operations are reflections. So just iteratively reflecting a polygon in its side is very natural. Move the controls to iteratively reflect an
-gon in its edges.
— number of iterative reflections
— half-number of edges in the
— expansion factor for the distance of the movable edge midpoints of the
