How to do it as a beginner?

You are looking to build a shape, which tool would help? Read tool names - Poly Build! 🙂

My workflow:

To check my answer, I compared the % overlap between my star and the provided solution. It was only 99.8%, so I tried to figure out why. Zooming in, I saw that the provided solution has rounded points! Red = solution, green = mine.

I'm guessing this is a result of using the Buffer tool? Guess we'll see when the solution is posted!
