Radius PDFs

Post by needsmorecowbel » Thu Nov 28, 2013 5:46 pm

Hey Guys I've been messing about on Cad designing some guitar related things

I remember AGES ago Kim posted a PDF with a whole range of multicurve radii for use in making radius dishes but as it was only a PDF it made it hard to ascertain the overall accuracy of the curve. So here are my construction photos alongside the final PDF scaled 1:1 (1 Unit = 1 mm).

The Page size is A0 as I decided to make the guides 1 metre long and 30 mm tall at the centre (which is a tad thick for hogging out the dishes but at least the images give a very good indication of the curve)

If you guys want me to whip up a bigger range of Radii or a specific radii or want me to make the centre of the drawing thinner let me know what needs to be done and I'll whip em up in my free time. I'm open to suggestions

All of the measurements were done using Google search "15 feet to mm" etc

Hope it comes in handy to someone

Hi Stu...Good Work there. Just a tip...for feet to mm multiply by 12 to get the number of inches and then multiply buy 25.4 to get exact number of mm....

Cheers John I did it via google search as it was a lot quicker than using those clunky calculator programs installed on the pc/ mac. That and I didn't have a calculator handy.
