Default Making a Triangloid with PolyDraw

I find this shape interesting.

Call up PolyDraw and set the number of polys to 1
(This give you a 8" circle dead center)

Change the # od waves to 3 and make the wave amplitude 10% of the radius(0.4000)

You now have a triangloid.

Change the amplitude to -0.4000 and you have a triangloid that faces the other way.

Remember
Make the X radius and Y radius the same
Set the # of waves to 3
Set the wave amplitude to 1% of the radius

OK, I'll try that. Hope it works with 3 or 4 rings as well.

Sure just make the wave amplitude 10% of the radius Fr three nesed 1/2" rings

# of waves = 3

raduis 4.0000 wave amp = 0.4000
raduis 3.5000 wave amp = 0.3500
raduis 3.0000 wave amp = .3000
raduis 2.5000 wave amp = 0.2500

I've been having trouble with the program. When I go to draw a pattern I saved, I don't get the pattern but just numbers. What am I missing?

I know, I've used it in the past and made several myself. Now, just to find the time!!!
