Prompted by this awesome art:

I am exploring using Mathematica to export SVGs of mandala like generated images.

First up? A zip file containing SVGs where each contains 4 to 20 points on a circle, all connected.

File 13 shown below.

Basic Circular Symmetry.zip (45.2 KB)

I’ll add mandala like renderings, if I can figure out how, in a comment on this in a bit.

To be clear, I’m starting with the rather brilliant work shared by others and modifying it to make it export friendly and to (potentially) make it a bit more GF friendly:

Moving on from simple geometry, I modified Simon Woods’ answer on the above StackExchange question to generate thousands of random mandala like patterns. Each file is named mandala-N-M-#. The N is the # of features around the circle (i.e. 2 circles, 2 pointy bits, whatever) and the M is the # of circles of mandala like patterns generated (i.e. 10-5-# means there are 10 copies of each feature around 5 circles of different features). The # is just a placeholder; for each combination of copy + circle, I generated 10 different examples. Each zip contains SVG for one particular N value where there are 2 generated files for each M.

Exploring Anton Antonov’s answer, I ended up generating a ton of what are more snowflakes than mandalas.

Here are 250 of them:
