Checking your ellipses
2:01 AM, Wednesday July 28th 2021
Hi, I recently just started the 250 cylinders challenge, and I'm a little confused about I should check the alignment of my ellipses to the minor axis. The lesson page says to "look really close" at each ellipse to find the line the cuts the two halves equally, which sounds pretty subjective to me. My strategy for this first page was to try to imagine the major axis with the help of a ruler, and then draw the line that would (1) be perpendicular to that major axis, and (2) kinda looks like it bisects the ellipse into equal halves. In the end, it feels like a bunch of guesswork and I'm wondering if there's a more objective way to check my ellipses.
Am I thinking too hard about this? Is taking my best guess just a part of the exercise, or is there a "correct" way to be checking the alignment that I'm missing?
