    Evenly Distributed Circles Within a Closed Boundary

    Andrew Kronquist

      I was making a stencil earlier today that had a lot of small holes covering an area to be coated with epoxy. I made it OK, but I was thinking if there was a way in SW to tell it the circle size, the boundary limits, and have it evenly distribute the circles within the fixed boundary in whatever fashion SW sees fit. It's totally out of my league I know, but I was thinking about voronoi diagrams, and how people have used them to make random holes in 3D printed vases. Any ideas?
