comment Recreating a guilloche with TikZ
I know this is an old question, but for reference I thought I'd add this, since I stumbled across it. It might be possible to design a desirable guilloche with this subblue.com/projects/guilloche and then utilising their provided source code (extract the equations), plug parameters from your drawing to re-create the image with TikZ

@AymanElmasry, if you've found a solution to that problem that was an issue for you (maybe it's an issue for others), would you mind mentioning that in a reply to this comment? Cheers!

What's the source on the last image in this post with all of the annotated sizes? That's a really wonderful image!

comment beamer hyperlinks not correct
Cheers diabonas. It looks like a viewer issue, you're right. I've been testing it in other viewers. However, I'm having trouble with beamer's excellent navigation features. The navigate sections buttons don't behave exactly how I expect them to. I have three slides for three sections. They don't work on the first slide, on the second slide forward they work fine, moving 3 slides (2,5,8). Moving backwards, it goes from (8,7,4,1). Thus, I thought about using the "bookmarks"

@JosephWright, I use Okular. Yes, my MWE has different sections. I used a picture of my complete document but then cut out everything that was unnecessary for the MWE
