Perimeter Doodle

Sometimes I use NodeBox to help me think through a visual problem - in this case some of the different ways two rectangles can overlap and how that affects the perimeter of their union.

After making the basic animation I got carried away and added some graphs to better visualize the changes. Just for fun.

Attached is the network, a screenshot, and a short animation.
