I'm assigned a problem where I need to calculate the points for a rendering program. These are the conditions I have to work with: * The arrow consist of two random points * At the second point, I need to find the two points that are X distance away under an angle of 45 degrees in either direction * I have to take into consideration the thickness of the lines that connect these points An image displaying this is added as attachment.

Where exactly are the points A and B, taking the thickness of the line into account? I suggest you first calculate a point E on the line, positioned so that BE can be treated as a vector of length X. You can then rotate BE by 45 degrees and by 45 degrees. Must all the lines in the diagram have approximately the same width?
