Quote from: celation on Nov 14, 2010, 09:59 amI would say that up to Inferno, the size of the console was slightly smaller - nearer 7 feet across.
Quote from: Scarfwearer on Nov 14, 2010, 11:09 amYes, I do need to update my plans for the first console to reflect it's slightly smaller size. Sorry I haven't gotten around to this yet.

Quote from: rassilonsrod on Nov 14, 2010, 06:47 pmTo be honest, I don't really get how it can be a whole extra foot (or even almost)... Unless the base was changed. The panels haven't changed all that much...
Quote from: celation on Nov 14, 2010, 09:23 pmYeah - I see what you mean. I guess building out a panel by three or four inches (a fair bit, I know) would extend the edge by maybe five to six inches (this is where we need Scarfwearer's calculator...) and therefore the overall diameter by ten to twelve inches.Possible...
Quote from: Scarfwearer on Nov 14, 2010, 10:31 pmI don't think we're talking about that big a difference:The later console diameter is 92" to my best estimate. 8' would be 96" - it's not that big.The Hartnell console is I think a little more than 7' (84"). I'll have to go back and look at where we came out on this, but I think it was 86" or 88", a total difference of 4-6" in diameter between the Hartnell and later console and thus a build out of 2-3" on each panel. The thread is here somewhere, and I think it's high time I finished up revising my plans. Unfortunately I'm travelling with a laptop right now, so it'll have to wait.There's a console panel angle calculator on the old site here (replacing the spreadsheet): Console Calculator, which I need to integrate into this new site. Now might be the time....Crispin
