Awl --

Suppose I have a box, a 6" cube, made from 6 pcs of 1/4" alum, butt-jointed together. No big problem, altho depending on the exact connections, all 6 pcs may not
be identical.

OK, now suppose the top face is not 6x6, but, say, 1x1 (or whatever), so that sed box is now pyramidal.

I would imagine SW would figger all the dimensions and bevels for you (does it?), but is there freeware or a utility that will calc these things out? This is sumpn you could actually just put into a spreadsheet, if you had the right formulas and relationships. Easy, in fact, iffin yer up on the math, far from easy if yer not.

Idears, links? Sheetmetal workers have programs/utilities like this, for making ductwork to match different sized openings, etc, altho thickness of the material itself is less of an issue with them.
