  • Layout question...

    Can someone tell me how to layout a 5-pointed star? I have a partial sheet of 16ga stainless that I want to plasma cut a star out of. I just need to make a pattern. Thanks.

    google a star pattern online. print it out. if you need it bigger, take it to kinkos and enlarge. or draw a circle and make a mark every 72 degrees and work the blade width to suit your needs

      First draw a regular pentagon i.e. all sides the same length and each internal angle 108 degrees. Then draw in the diagonals to get the star.
