Print a Spirograph using turtle in Python

Pre-requisites: Turtle Programming in Python

A spirograph is a very interesting geometrical figure which is often symmetrical to both the axes. It produces mathematical roulette curves of the variety technically known as hypotrochoids and epitrochoids. Here, we’ve used a range of colors to draw circles, you can use your combination as per your color choice.

Below is the implementation.

Python3




# Import the turtle library for
# drawing the required curve
import turtle as tt
 
# Set the background color as black,
# pensize as 2 and speed of drawing
# curve as 10(relative)
tt.bgcolor('black')
tt.pensize(2)
tt.speed(10)
 
# Iterate six times in total
for i in range(6):
   
      # Choose your color combination
    for color in ('red', 'magenta', 'blue',
                  'cyan', 'green', 'white',
                  'yellow'):
        tt.color(color)
         
        # Draw a circle of chosen size, 100 here
        tt.circle(100)
         
        # Move 10 pixels left to draw another circle
        tt.left(10)
     
    # Hide the cursor(or turtle) which drew the circle
    tt.hideturtle()

Output:
