Posting this here for lack of a better place.

I'm interested in widening the output of a sin() trace - using POV-Ray to
generate output for SVG which then gets processed into ... something else
(G-Code I think)

So I thought maybe doing a simple "circle-sweep" would do it, though it may be
overly complicated on the device end.
Doing a line segment sweep with lines normal to the sine wave might do it, but
may still be overly complicated.

Stacking sin waves of different frequencies and amplitudes to offset to the
sides / top / bottom  seemed the way to go.

I was wondering is anyone had any suggestions as to how to code that up.
