Make an octagon out of triangles with exact precision
on Oct 11, 2015 at 5:23:33 am

Trying to make an octagon using a cloner and 8 triangles. I got it as close as i can just eyeballing it but to get it exact i need a mathematical approach. Is there any way to construct a triangle based on its angles? Or even... any way at all to do this kind of thing precisely?
