## Terms Used in Cone Calculator

### Cone Large Diameter (D) :

Cone Large Diameter (D) is the Diameter of Concentric Cone or Eccentric Cone r Tori Cone at Large End. It is Denoted By D in this Calculator. If you are planning to Mark the layout on a Flat Plate Then use the Mean Diameter of the Cone that is nothing but Inside Diameter plus thickness or Outside Diameter minus thickness for higher accuracy. But if you are directly marking layout on cone then use outside diameter. Refer Standard Image for Large Diameter D. You can use any dimentional units such as Inches or MM as per your prefererance. if you are using Inches as units for your input values then please refer decimal fractional chart to enter proper input values.

### Cone Small Diameter (d) :

Cone small Diameter (D) is the Diameter of Concentric Cone or Eccentric Cone r Tori Cone at small End. It is Denoted By d in this Calculator. If you are planning to Mark the layout on a Flat Plate Then use the Mean Diameter of the Cone that is nothing but Inside Diameter plus thickness or Outside Diameter minus thickness for higher accuracy. But if you are directly marking layout on cone then use outside diameter. You can use any dimentional units such as Inches or MM as per your prefererance. if you are using Inches as units for your input values then please refer decimal fractional chart to enter proper input values.

### Cone Height (H) :

Cone Height is the Distance between the Large end and small end vertically. it is required for the cone fabrication layout or flat Pattern layout development. It is denoted by H. Refer Standard Image for Cone Height H. You can use any dimentional units such as Inches or MM as per your prefererance. if you are using Inches as units for your input values then please refer decimal fractional chart to enter proper input values.

### Cone Angle (α) :

Cone Angle is included half-angle of the cone. It is denoted by α. Cone angle should be entered in Degrees.

### No. of Levels (N) :

No. of Levels are important dimensions while layouting Multi-Level Cones. No. of Levels nothing but no. of parts doing in Height wise. It is the process of converting the whole cone into an equal no. of parts. this types of the cone are required when the large cone is fabricated and it is not possible to layout the cone in a single part due to limitations of raw material sizes or limitations of forming process. It is denoted by N. Refer to Standard Image for Multilevel cones.

### Knuckle Radius (R or r) :

Knuckle Radius is the dimension required for flat pattern layouting of Toricone. Knuckle radius at Large end normally denoted by R and Knuckle Radius at Small end is denoted by r. Refer to Standard Image for Toricone with Knuckle radius at Large End and Knuckle radius at Both Ends. You can use any dimentional units such as Inches or MM as per your prefererance. if you are using Inches as units for your input values then please refer decimal fractional chart to enter proper input values.

### No. of Development Lines (N) :

No. of Development lines are a very important input field in this calculator. It is the no. of equal division lines for flat pattern layout marking. It is required to give this input while layouting Eccentric Cone. No. of development lines play a very important role in the accuracy of the layout so optimum no of development lines are needed to select. We always recommend users give this value in multiples of four such as 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, 96, etc.

### Development Radius (R1 and R2) :

Development Radius has calculated this calculator and Denoted By R1 and R2 for Inner and Outer Radius respectively. This development Radius is used to layout cone fabrication layout markings or Flat Pattern Markings. Refer to Standard Image for understanding these dimensions at Output sections

### Development Angle (θ) :

Development Angle has calculated by this calculator and Denoted By θ. This development Angle is used to layout cone fabrication layout markings or Flat Pattern Markings. Refer to Standard Image for understanding these dimensions at Output sections.

### Development Cord Length (X1 and X2) :

Development Cord Length has calculated by this calculator and Denoted By X1 and X2. This development Angle is used to layout cone fabrication layout markings or Flat Pattern Markings. Refer to Standard Image for understanding these dimensions at Output sections.

## How to Use this Cone Calculator

1. Firstly Navigate to the Cone Calculator and Select the Type of Cone Flat Pattern Layout option from Selection pannel.
2. After Cone Layout Types Selection you have to refere standard input image of this types of petal shapes and make list of dimensions required in this calculator and keep handy this dimentions.
3. Select Input Dimensions Standarad Units from Unit selection pannel. if you are using inches as dimenions then please refer note below input selection to refere decimal factor selection chart.
4. Input all the dimension required in given input fields as per your unit selection. All dimensions are required to fill before moving ahead.
5. After Filling Input Dimensions Select No. of Development Lines for your flat pattern layout requirement. you can enter any even no. of development lines or you can directly select standard Development Lines from top selection pannel. we recommend user to enter no. of dimensions line as multiple of four.
6. after completing all input field data click on calculate button to generate output of flat pattern of your selected petal types.
7. If you left any input field empty then it will show you an error notification so if you are getting this notification then check all your empty fields and enter correct data to generate results.
8. Navigate below to calculate button to see generated fabrication Flat pattern layout marking dimensions.
9. Refere Outpt Image to understand out marking dimensions vales to mark layout accurately.
