Conic Section 12-Piece Corset

I made a corset pattern that disingenously treats your body like it’s just two frustums glued together with perfect front back symmetry.

I jest. This is just a use case example for some math I wanted to show off. All you need are the circulars and verticals between and BAM, arcs all sorted out:

Hello & welcome, @cskohrs

This is lovely. Thank you very much for sharing. I’d really like to have a look at your file, but I’ll need the measurements file to open it, please. :slight_smile:

Wow! @cskohrs. And yip, it’s exactly as I thought :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Way beyond my grade 7 arithmetic.

But I think, if I study it nicely, I may be able to incorporate the formulas into the sleeves and armholes. Hmmm… I’ve been playing with ideas for this for years now.

All the same, very well done! and thank you very much for this.
