Here I present three software calculators for the Modeler. I first published these online in about 1998. Click the titles below – or the links on the right sidebar.
Carve Calc is a program that generates dimensions for a prop blank when the user inputs the desired Pitch, Diameter and Blade Width. It also produces a table with various dimensions at various stations on the finished prop. Includes a diagram for layout and carving assistance.
Cone Calc is another simple program to help make paper cones from a sheet of paper. Input the desired cone size (for wheel hubs or prop spinners) and find out what sized circle of paper to use.
Strut Calc is simple program to calculate the true length of a diagonal such as a strut or landing gear. Just input the non-diagonal values from the drawing or from the model.
