Pipe mitre

I need to generate a wraparound template for a 7.5 deg cut on an 18" OD pipe and I just can't remember how to do it?

Anyone shed any light?

look up tube mitre on the web - some good software does it for you as long as you have a printer.

I had tried tubemitre but the problem is I am interfacing with a flat plate and not another pipe whic it won't let you do I don't think.

I have done it in CAD now though

Cheers

Its good cause it does gussets for you (Although seems to fail at the example liam gave).

Only if you're doing 90 joins. If your tubes join at an angle E.G. triangulation then the pattern is a little more complex.

What happened to a set of trammels and a square?

I've got the equations kicking around somewhere if anyone is interested, and even implemented a new version of tube mitre in python outputting to a pdf for printing later. Should still have it but haven't run it in a while.

ETA: Just tried and there is a problem with the external pdf generation library dependencies.

It might be possible to approximate for a flat join by making giving the tube you are butting against a very large radius relative to the one you are cutting.

I appreciate your efforts guys, thanks. I tried using a large rad in tube mitre but it was having trouble displaying such large pipes (18" and above)
Some of the ones we did today didn't fit on an A0 sheet.

I spent an hour on CAD today and could do any size or angle in about 10 mins now.

I am no programmer but as someone else said this would probably be a pretty simple one.

I'm going to blow my own trumpet a bit here as I'd never been shown how to do this and worked it out pretty much from scratch
