Involute of a
To draw an involute of a triangle, use this table:
Given triangle ABC, extend the sides of the triangle to any
Using CA as a radius and C as a center, strike arc AD terminating
at the intersection of the extension BD.
With BD as a radius and B as a center, strike arc DE.
With AE as a radius and A as a center , strike arc EF.
Repeat this procedure until you reach a figure of the desired size.
Figure 2-53 is an example of an involute of a triangle.
