If you have a pattern for turning printed full size on paper similar to the one on the right, would you want dimensions on it? If so, what dimensions? Would you want just an overall length to check the printing with? Would you want diameters at certain points along the leg? Thanks for your time.
Was that drawing created from that model?. Im OCD too and wonder where the radius near the top fell off the model. from the top you have a 1/4wide flat dia, a cove, another flat and then a radius... that radius isnt in the modelTimely question, Dave. I just drew plans for a dining table w/ a leg very similar to the one you show. Here are pics of the dimensions I added to my working drawings for upper and lower legs. Granted, I'm a little OCD, but I like to have all the details worked out before I start a project.
Chris, in SketchUp when I create a round column I start w/ a flat, 2D drawing of half the profile, then use "follow me" to fill out the column. If you're not familiar w/ creating a column in SU, this may sound confusing. Dave can probably explain it better than I did.Was that drawing created from that model?.

Good catch, Dave. No, I'll fade the transition up about 3/8 - 1/2". I just didn't know how to show that in SketchUp. :wconfused:Out of curiosity, will you be leave the transition from square to round sharp as you show it in your model?
That explains why its non tangent as well, just not sure where it went.As for that undimensioned radius, that is a transition from one known dimension (3d) to another (2d). Once I have the two diameters established, it is a simple matter to freehand that radius. :wconfused:
Eventually, yes, but not just yet. Actually thought about calling you when I was doing it, but decided this is good enough to get me in the shop. :wink_smil Thank you for the offer. I really appreciate the help you've given me on other issues I've had.Do you want to learn how?
I agree Bob. Given the choice, I would take a Carlyle Lynch drawing any day. His work was outstanding.Carlyle Lynch did a bunch of measured drawings from antiques. His papers are really great for reproductions.
This guy just uses a simple story stick and five minutes time.
