    Buildz: Self-Rationalizing Ellipse

    I love them dearly, but David and Phil are making you work too hard.  Who wants to layout a billion trimmed circles to then make a billion arc segments?   You’re having a hard day, your *$%# boss is making you figure out arc radii so that the *$%# contractor can actually build your *$%# boss’s *$%# elliptical wall.  *$%#^ that.  Use this tool instead.

    Oh, it breaks in lots of situations . . . but what do you want for a  free tool you lazy, lazy office drone.

    It's a natty trick, but I don't think it's going to help us document the 200x75m dual-skin wall we have in one of our projects (outer is elliptical, inner is planar).
