Adam is no stranger to File Exchange and File Exchange Pick of the Week. He is even more active on MATLAB Answers. In fact, this entry by Adam stemmed from a question on MATLAB Answers. The original poster asked for ways of creating non-overlapping randomly placed circles within a region, with an ability to specify some parameters such as number of circles and min/max radii.
Let’s look at an example. Here, we will create circles with 10 linearly spaced different radii ranging from 1 to 10.
S.circSize = [1 10]; S.nSizes = 10; S.supressWarning = true; bubblebath(S);
Next, we specify the exact set of radii for the circles.
S.circSize = [0.5 1 1.5 3 5 20]; S.nSizes = NaN; bubblebath(S);
I appreciate the effort he took to create this entry after some discussions on MATLAB Answers. He has also updated his entry based on the comments.
The other thing I really like is the detailed documentation (help) he includes with the function and the thorough error-checking for the input arguments. Those of you who have read some of my recent posts (this and this) know that I am a big fan of the new Function Argument Validation that was introduced in R2019b. I understand that Adam wrote his function in an older release, but once he upgrades to the newest release, I encourage him to give it a try!
Lastly, I’d like to give a shout-out to a few other entries that were mentioned in the MATLAB Answers post.
