Well done Christian!
I am interested in how you did it and I would love to know but I'm going to hold off at the moment as it's like a really annoying puzzle that I want to see if I can get anywhere with. At least I already know alot more about GC.
I could send you some images of how i done it the next stage is finding the x axis point i now got only the z axis.
Now i know all this its too easy to find the coordinates!... already found the X... and the Y... in a second 'other way' calculation... lol. This is fun lol
Give ma a while to ponder it. I haven't spent any huge amount of time on it yet. Like I still do have a few years left. But I may go nuts before then. and need a clue.
Hmmm a clue, take the angle from the meetpoint to calculate! I hope i can get some aluminium, i want to start with building my machine! Lerned a lot with this. Still think building is easier than programming a cutted stone lol! I saw already some aluminium 12mm thick, im thinking to use it. 20mm is too thick i think. I cant wait to see the machine running.
Yes! I also fully calculate the crown of the standard diamond cut. It almost took me a week to do that... but i have done it! Didnt knew how tof it was to calculate that cut. But it is now also possible to use for my machine. I first will program it in my software. Then it should be simple to make a 3d drawing by the calculations!
Sorry that i have been a bit quiet for some time im trying to make some software for my machine and this is pain stacking work... But i finaly have some results to show you! Im building the software for my machine so that i can controll the machine by my software. There are still some bugs in it but i generated a stone fully by the computer. Now i need to make the rest.
I have a online demo of the generated stone above you can rotate and resize: http://88i.nl/images/test.html
It should work to build a standard diamond cut in just a few seconds and also all other cuts that are on facet diagrams! But first making my software complete!
