# Polygon 1

# Polygon 1

**In:** *Generators/Patterns*

**Intermediate**

## Description

Generates a polygon shape, with many options for adjustment. See Polygon 2 for a simpler version.

## Parameters

**Sides**:*3 - 32*Sets the amount of sides the polygon should have.**Explode**:*0.0 - 1.0*Moves polygon "slices" apart.**Triangle Size**:*0.0 - 1.0*Adjusts size of slices/triangles. Any adjustment could break the shape apart, only 1,1. is perfectly connected!**Scale**:*0.0 - 1.0*Scales the whole shape as one.**Auto Scale**:*False/True*Adjusts scales so the whole polygon fits into view, with default parameters.**Rotation**:*0.0 - 1.0*Rotates the entire shape.**Gradient**:*False/True*Generates gradient slices/triangles instead of solid ones. Note: becomes similar to Polygon 2 with this setting enabled.**Gradient Invert**:*False/True*Flips the gradient direction if "Gradient" is enabled.**Tiling**:*1 - 16*

Sets the amount of times the result should tile.**Non Square Expansion**:*False/True*

Enables compensation of squash and stretch with non-square ratios.**Non Square Tiling****:***False/True*When Non Square Expansion is enabled, this will tile the shape without squashing.
