Re: Carousel math

If you are making a six scene carousel (the math is easiest for this) you
will be using the equivalent of 6 equilateral triangles, as viewed from the
top. The side or radius is the same length as the face. The face is formed
by two sections (because of the fold) so the sections for the sides are
twice as long as the sections for the front. It is possible to make 3, 4 or
5 scene carousels too. The scenes do not necessarily have to be the same
size. An adjustable angle triangle allows you to figure the inner angles of
your scenes and you can compute lengths from there. The total for the
circle must always equal 360 degrees.
I hope this is understandable.
