PLYWOOD ANGLES

Plywood Angles is super simple to use. You just enter your first roof pitch (example 6/12) and then your other roof pitch. 

The app will then generate a to scale image of the piece of plywood with the correct angle, along with the top, bottom and side measurements.

How it works

With these 4 values entered the app will generate.
1- A 2d example, to scale of what the Valley will look like.
2- Gets the ridge length with the exact angles.
3- Gets the sleeper board length (colour red) with both angles.
4- Gives you a list of every single rafter lengths (colour blue) with both angles and bevels.
5- Gets the saw bevel angles if you want to bevel your sleeper.

Just like that you have every single measurement in seconds, with the exact angles. Every piece you need to build your valley.
