Locus domain problem

Marvin Thorman shared this question 2 years ago

I am creating a locus of parametric trig equations. It simulates the cycloid drawing machine. For more complicated settings a complete cycle might be 100 pi. I set the slider domain to be 0 to 100pi but the locus will not display through the 100pi leaving an incomplete locus. Is there a limit to the number of points that a locus can have?

I have attached my file. The variable rot is the number of rotations needed to complete the locus. The slider for t is set to a max of 50*2pi. The locus is incomplete.

Have you tried the Curve() command? From a quick look I think that might work better for this example than Locus()

or several locus if the system works with 3 or 4 locus
