Making a multisided shape with set length for its sides

Is there an easy way to make a multi sided shape (say an octagon) with sides at a set length? Say I want a pentagon with sides 50mm in length. Can I type this anywhere to set the length of sides? Currently I break the shape apart resize and check a side length. rinse and repeat until it is the right size>

If you create a polygon in Lightburn and select it and go to Shape Properties, you can change the number of sides.

Select the number of sides you want. I created a Google Sheet that allows you enter the length of a side, and it calculates the width value that you can paste into the Width box in Lightburn.

FYI, your link…

Thanks Rick,
