Overlapping polygons

Looking at the dot-pattern we got in “Projection method for 10-fold rotational symmetry” we could see rhombs instead of the regular polygons shown in “finding polygons“. These rhombs are overlapping and we need a modified code to get them. To get different colors where rhombs overlap, we use semitransparent color with the alpha-channel.

Here is an example with rhombs of an acute angle of 72 degrees and non-overlapping pentagons:

overPolygonsI love to create radically different designs on the same basis. Using 36-degree rhombs you could again get something new.
