Daily Equation #7 – |x^(5/3) + y^(5/3)| = a


This is Day 7 of my collection of printable equations. To see the whole collection, go to:http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:227210

For today's equation, I'm continuing the series of equations of the form |x^b + y^c| = a (See days 2 and 6). Previously, we saw that b = c = 1 generated a diamond, while b = c = 2/3 caused the diamond edges to curve inward. Today we look at b = c = 5/3, which bends the curve outward to start approaching a circle.


  • units are in mm
  • a = 678 (to give a length and height of 100)
  • Range(x) = -50 to 50
  • stl resized to make x axis = 100 mm

As always, I'm going to continue to post one equation per day until get bored or people lose interest. If there's a particular equation you'd like to see, leave a comment and I'll give it a shot.
