This is really cool. I’ve always loved these designs.

I’m very interested in the math here so I can convert this into a little C# app, especially so it can generate an SVG. Don’t suppose you’d mind sharing or publishing the source?

Hi Nathan – thanks for your comment. No plans to open source this old example (in fact it could do with some sprucing up), but there’s similar code available here: https://www.simonheys.com/2007/06/05/postscript/
