Hi @kat

Thought I might be able to use the optimization tool for this but couldn't figure it out. Instead I went with more of a brute force method.

I was trying to see if I could get around parts using the data transposed to try and write more simple formulas, but got my head in a mess.

A bit late, but this looked like a fun one, so I wanted to see if I could figure it out.  I'm sure my solution isn't the most efficient way to solve this problem, but it gets the job done.

I chose to recalculate the position on each ring so it directly in the right position before gathering all the rings together via their Position.
