I love the alignment tools in LightBurn but I’ve noticed that they don’t work properly with many polygons. The polygon tool is very useful, but if you make a regular pentagon for instance, then make another regular pentagon, there is no way to center them with respect to each-other. If you use the “Align both vertical and horizontal centers” tool, it will won’t actually align the centers.
It seems like LightBurn finds the “center” of the polygons by just circumscribing a square around it then using the center of the square. This works with any shape with a multiple of 4 sides like octagons, but it doesn’t work with any other regular polygons.
Is there any reliable way to use the arrangement tools in LightBurn to align two regular polygons?
Thanks, that’s a pretty good workaround for now. I didn’t know about the center of mass plugin for Inkscape, I will give it a try.
Yeah I know that the bounding box is the default for most shapes but I would think since the program has its own polygon tool, that it could make a special case for them and calculate the center correctly.
