From the classic four-, five- and six-pointed star shapes, the five-pointed star is by far the most complex.
There is a few different ways to go about making one, this method I’m about to show you is a bit simpler and with a more consistent outcome.

Hey, guys. In today's video, we're gonna be looking at making a five point star shape and, uh, yeah, we'll be doing this with our D works. But before that, let's have a quick intro first. Mm. So today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za got together today. We make sure that easy to watch problem solving videos. We also have daily updates. Otherwise we're back in the programme here now. Yeah, it's just a quick reminder. This is a miniseries on the design and I will leave relevant links in description so you guys can follow it along. In the previous video, we looked at the four point star. Now we're gonna be looking at the five point star. Might have to break this video and took part as the formula. It's a little bit long. Obviously, you can try to import a shape and just trace over that Maybe your most simple way to do it. But if you wanted to create it from scratch and I have it relatively, I'm accurate. Then this is the method we're gonna take now. First of all, we're gonna have to have some form of guide to work with as this a five point is quite a tricky, uh, you start to make. So I'm gonna do I'm gonna zoom in here into four blocks like before, and I grid something we did with Well, I think with the triangle with the four blocks. So now, after that, I want to select our clip ellipse and then create a circle over these four blocks and then just line up your first point, make sure it's quite accurately aligned, or it's actually so you're comfortable with. And when you create it, make sure you keep controlling. Otherwise you can be creating ovals. We want to create a circle. We're gonna take our masks and align it here at the bottom on these crossing points. So once we're done with that, this is our first guide that we have. So next up, what we're gonna do is create, um, some horizontal and vertical lines were actually moving. So the horizontal line I'm gonna go, yeah, curves select a line and then just once again, making sure this is aligned or for training purposes after it all makes sense to be aligned with this cross point. Click there with the left mouse button you keep controlling and then you align it to the bottom. Once you click, that will create it. I'm just gonna change colours, so it's more readable. Get ready so we can see it's a guide. Then what you wanna do is select guide point you just made make a copy and paste of it. You need to go control sink 12 V. Just keep in mind When you go control B, it's gonna base it with your mouse cursor heads. Something like that that will happen. All we can do is control in with your and then you left, click and drag your mouse. This will make a copy of it. Now what I want to do with this copy, I wanna drag this exactly onto the other line or as close as I can. So once it becomes a different colour, you know it's fine, and I make sure the top and bottom is also fine. Then under a cut back on top of years, just wanna make sure origin is set to the centre. Okay, that is right. So then it will rotate around the centre point here. So with the selected, I'm gonna change the rotation 2 37 Greece and enter, you can see I just made a rotation. Their faults. And what I'm gonna do is, um, make a duplicate of this again. Then once again, just quickly align it to the previous one, and it's as close as I'm comfortable with. Then I'm gonna rotate this one also 37 degrees. I'm gonna select these to group them together here on now, um, our bar on top, Select that group, make a duplicate, then throw this once again a liner as close as I can. So it kind of becomes, like one colour, and you kind of know it as well aligned. I'm not quite getting right. There we go. Any weird? Take this one. I instead of, uh, rotating it. We're actually gonna mirror it here on the vertical access. So, yeah, I drove on the left click that Now we can see we've got nice cake slices there. Or pizza, whichever you want to envision. And this is not your classic cross cross cross where this has actually got the a bit of a off, um, horizontal line. So this will be creating the basic shape at first. And then after that we're gonna go into depth and create the actual, uh, star five star around the template. But otherwise we head here to softwaretraining.co.za hat you guys don't know. It's quite a variety of different software, so we do cover. And also you can isolate your search on the top of right. We do not, however, find what you're looking for. Jessica here request a training video and will make that video for you. Otherwise, thanks, guys, for watching and shoes.
