ConeCalc for Windows and OSX

A calculator for the flat pattern dimensions of a cone. For creating a cone from sheet metal or any flat material. Enter the desired dimensions of the finished cone shape. You only need to enter one diameter and two other of the five possible dimensions of the final cone. The other dimensions will be calculated from these. A 3D representation of the cone is shown. A drawing of the flat pattern with dimensions is produced. Also calculated number of cones that can be cut from a sheet size.

Cone Tab:

Dimensions:

Entering the cone dimensions.

You can choose Full cone or Half cone. Half cone would be helpful if you needed to make it in two halves and weld it together. Enter the desired dimensions of the finished cone shape. You only need to enter on diameter and two others five possible dimensions of the final cone. The other dimensions will be calculated from these. You can enter a Part Number for identification purposes.     Diameter A is the bottom diameter and needs to be larger than the top diameter.     Diameter B is the top diameter.     Height is the height of the cone. If material is thick use the height from the inside corners or outside corners, but not both.     Angle is optional in case you don't have one of the other dimensions.     Length is the length along the angle of the cone. These dimensions are system agnostic, so if you enter the cone dimensions in inches the result will be in inches and if you enter the cone dimensions in millimeters the results will be in millimeters. To calculate the result, click "Calculate" button at the top of the page. Press F2 to Calculate cone. or Main Menu - Calculate. A 3D model of the calculated cone is displayed on the Cone tab. The Dimensions that you did not enter are filled in with green color from the calculations. The model is interactive so you can change a dimension and press enter key and the model will change. You can hold down the left mouse button and drag the view of the cone around in the window. You will notice that this example the last two items in the Enter Cone Dimensions box are blue. The blue items were calculated from the other data that was given for your reference. After calculating, you can see the results on the Result and the Sheet tabs. On the Result tab you will find the dimensions of the resulting flat pattern that you would manufacture and later bend around so the two straight edges meet. the result is a cone shape. A drawing is made in the window of the flat pattern shape with the dimensions labeled.

Flat Shape Tab:

On the Flat Shape Tab is shown a drawing of the Flat Pattern and the dimensions that are needed to make the flat pattern. After calculating, you can see the results on the Result and the Sheet tabs. On the Result tab you will find the dimensions of the resulting flat pattern that you would manufacture and later bend around so the two straight edges meet. the result is a cone shape. A drawing is made in the window of the flat pattern shape with the dimensions labeled.

Sheet Tab:

Optionally, you can enter the size of a sheet of material for calculating how many flat cone patterns will fit on it. If you entered a sheet size, there will be a drawing representation on the Sheet tab. Enter a value in "Clearance Between" if you want there to be a distance for spacing between the patterns on the sheet. You can zoom and pan the drawing. Zoom in and out with the mouse wheel. Control-Left- Mouse button, or Middle Mouse button will drag the picture around. The Zoom All button will bring you back to window size. Enter a value in "Clearance Between" if you want there to be a distance horizontal and for extra spacing between the patterns on the sheet.

Irregular Cone:

Sometimes you need a cone with an offset top hole or angled top or bottom. These cones are real cones but the flat pattern cannot be described by radial dimensions. In order to make these cones you would have to have a pattern that you could put on the material to draw the shape so you can cut it. Thats where Printing the Flat pattern comes in below. You can modify the cones in several ways: Shift the top. (shifting the top one way is the equivalent of shifting the bottom the other way) Angle of Top hole. Can be plus or minus. Angle of Bottom hole Top Ellipse short axis. The long axis is the Top Diameter. Bottom Ellipse short axis. The long axis is the Bottom Diameter.

Elliptical Cones:

You can make a cone that has an ellipse on the top or bottom instead of a circle. These are the equivalent of a regular cone that has been squooshed into a oval or ellipse. The flat pattern has been compensated for the squooshed shape. When you assemble it, it will be a regular cone shape that you have to squoosh to your planned elliptical shape.

Saving and Loading:

You can save the cone dimensions you entered incase you want to use them again later. Main Menu - File - Save Definition You can load those settings again with Main Menu - File - Load Definition When the program ends, the current settings are saved to a .cone file. If a file name has not been chosen, the name will be "untitled.cone".

Printing:

You can print out a single sheet report that shows the cone dimensions entered, flat pattern results, and drawings of the single and full sheet flat patterns. Main Menu - File - Print Data PDF

Printing Flat Pattern:

Main Menu - File - Save Flat Pattern PDF This creates a multiple page PDF file that has a full scale drawing of the flat pattern. This PDF can be printed on a printer on multiple sheets of paper. The sheets can be cut out for use as a pattern for other material. Make sure when you print the PDF file you set it to print to actual size.

Saving drawing to CAD file:

It is possible to save the single shape and sheet flat patterns to a CAD file for importing into another CAD program. Each one is saved by pressing the button on its own tab. Save the single pattern by pressing the Save CAD button on the Flat Shape tab and save the sheet pattern by pressing Save CAD button the the Sheet tab. File will be saved as DXF format. In Windows you can choose the filetype from the dropdown list. In OSX it will save it according to what file extension you give it. Output unit is Inches. Main Menu - File - Save 2D CAD will save the flat pattern drawing to a DXF, CDL or IGS file. Main Menu - File - Save 3D CAD will save the wireframe CAD of the 3D cone shape to a DXF, CDL or IGS file.

Settings:

Main Menu - File - Settings will bring up Settings dialog. The Units setting will affect the printing of the Flat Pattern PDF
