I would like to create an object. Multiply it along the edges of a polygon (e.g. pentagon) and then by editing the original object, modify all the duplicated instances. Like a Mirror modifier but not along x/y/z but polygon axis. How is this possible ? Here an image of what I am looking for. The spheres are duplicated along the edges of the pentagon.

Thank you

Dupliverts should do exactly what you want.

I could spend ages explaining it here, but the manual does it better :)

You'll need to turn orientation on to get things facing in different directions.

Edit: But do follow the link in Mr Zak's comment, it contains many further examples and an entire alternative method. Not sure why it wasn't an answer too.
