This is for the administrator.

There must be something wrong with the views counter it seems to be going up thousands a day, I would like to think my post is very interesting but reality says different. Can you look into it .

Re: Past project, tangent handrail

Here’s the last of the obtuse plan drawings this one has a lower level tangent, the drawing above is an upper level tangent plan, the equal pitch obtuse plan is on the previous page. You will notice all drawings need a different approach.

Version two or my version I say mine because I haven’t seen it anywhere else, and came up with it on my own. Now I’m not say this will work in all situations because I don’t know. If not self explanatory please ask.

Re: Past project, tangent handrail

To anyone following this , another way of drawing the last method and maybe understand it better is to draw the radius in the plan (in red) and the length of the purple and orange lines from the same centre , and draw a line tangential to the radius in the plan hence given the required bevel.

Re: Past project, tangent handrail

This method is the best and most accurate in my opinion, the end where you develop the twist bevel is the end it applies to, strike an arc from “a” to the developed tangents in blue ( ie at 90 deg to the tangents) as shown, from there draw a line at a tangent to the plan radius copied from the plan ...

First bevel and probably the easiest. Strike an arc from B to just kiss the inclined tangent at C ( it should be at 90 deg to the extended inclined tangent) and rotate to the base line at D, draw a line from D to P , and you can measure the angle as shown in orange. This angle would be used (60.2deg...
