Super shapes are fascinating completely mathematical shapes that are created using the ingenious Super Formula.

Recently I wanted to give Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), the new WinForms, a go. I’ve created Super Shapes applications before using OpenGL and XNA, but neither had a nice interface nor many features.

Follow this Link to see how the program looks like. The user interface should be in English on your computer, unless you’ve also got a German OS like me.


  • simple creation of countless different shapes by simply adjusting the parameters on the right.
  • templated shapes to allow for a quick-start
  • saving & loading of shapes (stored in human-friendly XML format)
  • zooming using the mouse-wheel
  • dragging of the shape by holding the left mouse button
