Trying Out Predictions

For this code, I removed the extra "move 10 steps" block from the inner repeat block and I changed the outer repeat block to 7. This made the diameter of my circles smaller, but it didn't come together to create a full circle. If I wanted my design to look like a complete circle, I would change the "repeat 7" to "repeat 28" or a number greater than 7, which means that there would be a greater rotation of circles to form a design similar to the original design:
I thought about changing the "move 10 steps" variable to 20, but I soon realized it changed the length of the jumps within the stitches. In my next trial, I adjusted the "turn clockwise 90 degrees block" to 180 degrees and the repeat to 11. I noticed how the turtle/arrow moved differently compared to my other trials. In the other trials, the circles were created next to each other, but for this code with 180 degrees, the circles were created across from each other.

I added comments to the original code and I stated how each block contributed to the design as a whole. Here is the link to the code: http://turtlestitch.org/run/index.html#open:../media/uploads/1478259045070.xml 
A question I still have for you all to help me answer is: how would you use small squares to form a circle? Next week, I am planning on stitching the codes and examining the motion of the digital embroiderer to see how my code affects each part of my different designs.

  1. It was great to find the Url to the original project, so that i was able to execute the code myself. Thanks for commenting the single lines of code. It gives an useful insight in the logic of the code!
