Applications  (4)

Plot a function over a stadium:

Create a 3D stadium extrusion with RegionProduct:

Using a series of stadiums (and a disk), create a stick figure:

Use RotationTransform to make the stick figure's limbs pivot:

Make a spring visualization from a collection of stadiums. Make a function that creates a set of stadiums for the front half of the spring and another for the back half, given that each stadium has a horizontal component of :

Set the top layer of the spring to a lighter gray than the back and make it interactively stretchable using Manipulate:
