Quote from: transmatdalek board=discussion thread=1144 post=20512 time=1241502832Does anyone know what angle the short sides of the wall columns are at?I'd probably say the cross section would be trapezoidal in shape.Who's the resident TARDIS interior expert here?
Quote from: scarfwearer board=discussion thread=1144 post=20523 time=1241534406Well I wouldn't claim to be a TARDIS interior expert, but I can do some trigonometry!* The widths of the front and back of the column are in the ratio 58:86 (measured off a photo taken at some distance).* There are 7 trims on the front face and 3 down the side, so assuming they're the same trims (which is a dodgy assumption), the side will be 25 units long. The triangle height at the back will be (86-58)/2 = 14 units.* sin-1(14/25) is pretty close to 35°, so that's my best guess at the angle. Add 90° to get 125° for the whole obtuse angle if you like.But this is only a guestimate.Crispin

Sheer Ingenuity!But you know, if the behind of the column was flat, how would that be compatiable, with say, the corner of the hexagon of the room? Unless there was extra filler material behind the flat surface of the column to fill in the space of the hexagon?
Quote from: scarfwearer board=discussion thread=1144 post=20527 time=1241540135Perhaps the room is not hexagonal...Crispin
Quote from: rassilonsrod board=discussion thread=1144 post=20540 time=1241552950Definitely not. Even if we assume the screen wall to be the same as the other roundel walls AND the exterior doors, the Interior door wall is absolutely smaller...

Quote from: transmatdalek board=discussion thread=1144 post=20545 time=1241585273So we are all agreed it's an irregular octagon?
Quote from: transmatdalek board=discussion thread=1144 post=20545 time=1241585273Presumably the original studio plan omitted the three roundel walls to the left of the main doors. So the general layout is1 X long main door wall5 X roundel walls 1 X Scanner wall1X interior wallAssuming the 5 X roundel walls are the same length, can we also assume the scanner wall is the same length as well?
Quote from: rassilonsrod board=discussion thread=1144 post=20549 time=1241631309I had a dig around my stuff and found a plan I have for a story from a previous era (Season 1 to be precise). I think we can extrapolate some info from this.The roundel recesses are 550mm diameter, and 80 mm either side, like this80 550 80 550 80 550 80 550 80Which should give a total width of 2600mmThe doors are 3000mm wide and the screen (assuming the its the same) is 1800mm and the door 1650mm (again if its the same flat).Finally, the quality isn't great and the height of the flats isn't very clear... But I think it says 3300mm (its the first digit thats obscured... But I'm sure its a 3).Hope thats some help.
