Here is a list of 4 free online segmented turning calculator websites. These sites help you find out inside and outside segment length, segment thickness, cut angle etc., to create an object like bowl, vase, or some wood item. You need to provide the input details like number of segments, ring thickness, scale, inner and output margin, ring outside radius, etc., and then the output will be generated accordingly.
In the output, you will be able to find out values or numbers for cutting angle for segments, segment thickness, outside segment length, inside segment length, and more.
Let’s check these online segmented turning calculators.
Blocklayer.com is one of the best segmented turning calculator websites. You can enter number of segments, ring thickness, outer and inner margin, outside radius of ring, etc., as input details. You can either use sliders or manually enter input details. The unique feature of this website is it generates a diagram based on input details instantly. The graph is visible within the same page. It gives a much better idea about the output details.
