Plotter and Calculator: Circles around a Circle
Calculates the size of circles around a central circle and plots a draft. With a gap of 0, the outer circles touch each other, with a negative gap they overlie. A large number of outer circles together with a negative gap generates interference patterns. Example generates a typical interference pattern. Small circles with a positive gap around a large circle you can find e.g. in a ball bearing.

Gaps, where they shouldn't be, are due to rounding.
