Quote from: Scarfwearer on Aug 08, 2012, 01:02 pmYou can use the console calculator on the http://tardisbuilders.com/index.php?board=30.0 board for both of the orange measurements:here's a screenshot of it after I put in the figures:The orange line is 'L' in the calculator results, and the dashed orange line is 's'.'L' seems to differ from someone's calculation, but I've checked it independently and my calcs match the console calculator (which may not be surprising, as I built the console calculator ).The console calculator exists so that as we refine our estimates of the actual dimensions, we can compute the geometrically dependent dimensions quickly.Looking at it again, the Kelt console actually has four truncated 6-sided pyramids:The main panels, the underside panels, the plinth and the collar around the time rotor. You could even count the panel edges as a degenerate fifth, where the top and bottom edges are the same length. The console calculator will compute the trapezoid height, sloping edge length and angles for any of them.Crispin
Quote from: MacktheTardisGuy on Jul 24, 2020, 11:09 pmI am trying to make a console with 3 panels as something for me to just play with, I need advice on how to build and structure it, with cardboard, pritt stick, sticky labels, tape, paper. For 3 panels, that are around the same size as the actual TARDIS.
