Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello all!

I am designing a plate to hold some crystals, bla, bla...

The point is that this mounting plate is held by other plate by let's say "interface" pieces.

I made some calculations and I need 24 pieces (6 by quadrant) to be on the safe side.

I do not know how share them over the surface homogeneously.

Does anyone have any idea??

thank you

Cheers,

I have to correct my post;

It is not a complete circle, it's an Annulus (circular crown).

Thanks

Can you really be asking how to divide 360 by 24?

Of course not!

My question is how to spread the points over the crown area, not a circumference.

My answer seems rude, my exclamation mark is irony!

In your picture, you don't show the points distributed over the are but distributed over the inner and outer radii. If that is sufficient, you can do this: Add the two circumferences and divide that by 360. Use that distance between points around the two circumferences.
