Spiral Star art made in Excel

Hypocycloid
Excel for artists… –

Sometimes, you don’t need complicated stuff to get beautiful images. Sometimes it’s easily done. Today’s Math Art was generated on Microsoft Excel. Yes, you read that right. Microsoft Excel…. Remember those spirographs that you played with when you were a kid? If you’ve ever drawn using a spirograph, you’ve drawn a hypocycloid. A hypocycloid is a roulette of two circles, where the one being drawn on is the one inside (think the spirograph). If the outer circle is the one being drawn it’s called a epicycloid. The variable that defines the shape of the hypocycloid is the radii of both circles.

  1. hey! I’ve never seen something like this before ever done in Excel. I’m taken a class before and I’ve only ever seen the programming aspects behind it. Would you please be able to send me the file so I can check it out at blockheadbooks@yahoo.com?

    Thanks so much and keep up the good work!
