Epicycloid Orbit Trap

Fractal Science Kit Orbit Trap: Epicycloid

Epicycloid is a Fractal Science Kit fractal generator orbit trap based on a curve called the Epicycloid described in:

Eric W. Weisstein. "Epicycloid."

From MathWorld--A Wolfram Web Resource.

Options are provided to control the Center, Radius, Angle of rotation, the number of cusps (Cusps), the number of revolutions (Revolutions), and the size of the loop (Delta). If C is the number of cusps, R is the number of revolutions, and C and R are relative primes, then the Epicycloid will have C cusps/loops in R revolutions outside the inner circle.

See Polygon Options, Parallel Curve Options, and Trap Options for a description of the remaining options.
