 Conceptual diagram
 CharacteristicsControls each line individually: creates different module shapes in a finite number (i) Controls only the radius: creates a greater number of regular modules than the point on segment control
(ii) Requires a complex mathematical formula to create an octagon
(i) Easy modulation for construction: allows for an economical production system
(ii) Can create different types of modules
(i) Easy modulation for construction: allows for an economical production system
(ii) Additional modification is difficult
