Fun With Polygons and Stars in CorelDRAW

October 27, 2011

Some of the more basic tools in CorelDRAW can also provide some really cool results. I’ve been playing with the Polygon, Star and Complex Star tools and it reminded me what they could create because they all use symmetry when they are modified. If you move one node, all other nodes around the polygon or star will be modified in the same way. Of course you can also add symmetrical nodes to the shape. When you add one node, every side of the polygon/star will get the same node. Want to convert one node to a curve? All other symmetrical nodes around the shape will be converted. As these shapes get more and more sides, you can really create some cool, complex shapes with minor node modification. Go ahead and play with a few shapes yourself and I think you’ll find it kind of addictive.
