  • Without interval in between lines this question makes no sense. Straight lines?

I tested few options for fixed interval between lines:

  • Medial axis
  • Minimum bounding rectangle
  • Centre of largest inscribed radius
  • Boundary buffers

enter image description here

Last one stands out because it beats others by in accounting of polygon shape. So, use it if stepping back a little from the boundary is an option.
