Might want to check with mr webster but as I recall math people like to use ellipse and most people use oval and they both are for the same "egg shape" to add another name for it.garys said:Can someone tell what the difference is between oval and elliptical is and how do you make one or the other. I have a head board with a name in it. The name is curved and I need to cut a oval (or ellipses) with the same curve or arc as the name around it. I would like to hear what would be the best way to go about it.
The math dunce.
Now on to the problem...... I don't know of a good way to figure it out sounds like it might have to be a bit of luck and trying different sizes/shapes.
If you had a digital camera and could center yourself then shoot a picture and post it I could try and get something close in my cad package????
Maybe someone else has a better idea??
