Requesting Ellipses

  • updated


I'm enjoying Shapes, but my initial plan was to use it to draw orbits (ellipses shapes) for planets in a game.

someone mentioned uniform borders for discs a few years ago, and I guess this relates to the same concept.

Would it be possible to create an ellipse shape with an A, B radius parameter ( I think i've seen something like this in maths long ago) The expected result would be an ellipse that has a nice border ( but that you can't deform with scaling).

Thank you for this great plugin.

Hi im using shapes to draw orbits as well, this is my code for it (for now at least its kinda just temporary.

Edit because i didnt realise that the site didnt use markdown

It is not perfect, but it works. I plan to eventually use mean anomaly instead of true anomaly to make the line look nicer with highly elliptical orbits. but this works with any conic orbit.
