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. MultipleListPlot[mycircle,SymbolShape->MakeSymbol[{Line[{myelipse}]}]] 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. Thanks, Dimitri Vorkapich pennyrue at aol.com -----------------
