Infinity

This was drawn over a simple horizontal wipe:



; Content type: shape
; Layer:
; Shape: Circle
; Name: polygon
; Number of lobes: 2
; Visible: true
; X offset: 0
; Y offset: 0
; Number of loops: 320
; When transforming shape: smear
; Spin: false
; Grow: false
; Track: true
; Track size: 73
; Track length: -15.95
; Number of loops at each track position: 1
; Track grow: false

Beautiful tracks!

I realize this is an older post but I just fisnished building a sand table and I’ve started playing around with sandify. I got your first two designs to work in sandify after messing around with the intial width and height and they turnd out great but I cant seem to figure out the “infinity” design. When I enter the values the preview looks lopsided and not right hahaha, do you have and tips on what I should try?

Thanks

Some of those parameters have changed. I think the key is the original had grow: false and yours has scale: true. Which is making the lopes get bigger each loop.

I played around with it a bit. Maybe try this for your size table:

I moved this thread and am going to try and break it up a bit so we can share these better… I need to give some of these a try.

Killer designs! What material sand is this? I’m getting close with testing now!

Just baking soda. I’ve tried several brands and I think clabber girl is the best. You’d think all soda would be the same, but there’s definitely a difference.
