Sometimes walls aren't straight and corners aren't at 90 degree angles and we’re left scratching our heads trying to figure out exactly how to lay out a frame or rebar. Many times we’re caught in situations that we have never seen before and instead of trial and error (which causes expensive rework), a nice and simple calculator could save a whole lot of time and frustration.
The folks at Blocklayer have fortunately come up with over 100 different calculators to make your construction life easier. Whether you need to layout an oval, build a staircase, cut stud lengths at an angle, measure rise, run, pitch, angle, slope of a walkway or roof, or convert imperial measurements to metric, Blocklayer has you covered.
All you need to do is plug in your parameters into the simple input boxes, like the one in this Stud Lengths at Angle calculator:
After clicking “calculate”, Blocklayer then calculates the total area of the wall, the exact length each stud will need to be longer than the previous one to create the proper angle and the total rake length.
It even spits out a quick diagram showing you exactly how the wall will layout and allows for quick adjustments on the angle if your previous inputs don’t work.
