    This made me take interest in plays of geometry and i created a dwg filled wit columns of accurate plays of polygons upto 20 sides. trying to make stars of each and how they could be mixed up. A naive but original start.. haven't gone much far and i still have to implement it in any of my designs.. Btw very very good work and great of you to have made this and put it up. Regards and respect!
