Challenge #246: Rectangle Tangle

So I figured out the basic way for this to work (iterative macro, centroid, etc), but I kept getting stumped on points for lines. I did the Inspire surf location distance one earlier today with a Multi-Row Formula and it was a lightbult moment where I realized that that would be totally applicable for this as well.

I'm keen to see how @Hollingsworth tackles this one, given that spatial is his super-power:-)

Thanks for the prompt, @SeanAdams 

 

I  solved it without using any Spatial tools by using the Formula tool to create the spatial objects.

Pretty fun! though my solution only finds the next 'rectangular' area, rather than the next 'diamond' shaped area.
