I need to learn trig......

And I just didn't understand what they were for, I guess I didn't ask my question clearly enough. The reason I want to know how far apart the are with a given radius is so I can space them along the circumfrence of the barrel centers evenly. Unless anyone has a sugestion on how to do that.

Ah, sorry. I thought you had said you were using CAD. If you're doing it by hand then maybe that would be the way to go, though I think using a protractor would be much easier and more accurate.


I am using cad... I guess you mean there is some way to do it on the software, I guess I'm not familiar with it then.

Maybe use this if you're using a turret that your calipers won't reach far enough with?


Oh god I don't have my turret machined down to the micrometer whatever shall I do? How I can mount my manta on my crossbow now?

Jesus dude, I just like my PETG to not be bent, whether or not it affects performance.

Use the rotation function or equivalent.

I seriously doubt you can rotate around an axis before you know where that axis is located.

Umm, that's the whole purpose of the equations I gave.

This is confusing me a little-- I think I'm just going to learn trig so I'll understand.

sm3k 11/16"

center axis to barrel center, OR barrel center to barrel center (it's the same only for turrets with exactly six barrels)

Last time I checked, my 3k had eight barrels. The correct measurement should be 21/16".
