Circling the square

I have some more Paint.NET shapes added to collection. Superellipses to be precise. Check the project page.

Superellipse or Lamé curve is the shape produced by generalized equation of ellipse, where we change the power factor. It approaches to rectangular shape on large values.

Also check the video below for a little bit of history of this shape in design.

By the way, Numberphile is a great channel. Take a closer look in case you don’t watch it already.
