How does one create squiggly lines in Geogebra?

What squiggly lines are you talking about?

...If you mean squiggly lines on a graph, that might be the graph of a trig ratio... sorry, I can't tell what you're asking.

I want to create an infinite stream of uneven points the come together to form an an evenly shaped object. Something like a cloud but it doesn't have to be a cloud. It can be much more squiggly than that if I wanted it to be using Geogebra. I know it can be done, but I don't know how to do it yet.

I can show you my failed attempt at squiggly lines and maybe you can gain ideas from that

I was able to create this cloud object in Geogebra but that's not exactly the kind of object I want to create. It needs to be more squiggly

hmmmm - I've never tried to create a shape like that in geogebra - let me try and see if I can - I'll get back to you...

I don't want you to create a shape like that. I want squiggly lines! lol

ok - as Arnie would say - I'll be back!

One thing I've found so far is, if you can express the shape as an equation, then you can use the Curve command. See here: http://www.geogebra.org/en/wiki/index.php/Curve_Command

There is also an interesting idea presented here: http://www.screenr.com/MBd8 Interesting problem you've posed here - I'll have to investigate further but need to eat some food right now.

i think those were done by graphing polar equations?

This is the closed technique I've found to solving your problem Hero: http://samjshah.com/2011/07/13/make-it-better-drawing-with-geogebra/

I appreciate it asnaseer. It is the closest to what I am looking for but it seems like much more work is involved than I would prefer.
