I am trying to rotate an elipse about a fixed point, so that
every pi/16, or so, increment is shown. A sort or spirograph type effect.
So far I've got the elipse rotating around a circle, but the
axes stay fixed as it rotates, it looks like a fat football.
Is there a way to transform the myelipse list as it rotates
according to mycircle or the origin?
Another related question. Increasing the size of myelipse is easily done by n*myelipse, but what about increasing the line thickness?
I assume there must be another package beyond standard add-ons
that can allow both of these tasks?
By the way I'm actually rotating complicated looking parametric equations following other parametric equations, I just thought a circle and elipse would be easy to visualize. Thus a solution that would work for any object to follow the path around any other object with orientation towards the origin would be ideal. For example, a W looking line rotating around a circle so the result is a starburst/ray effect.
