Thanks mrben. What formula/ program did you use?<br />
</blockquote></p>
<p>Just did it in CAD innit (as use it for work), what your seeing is just a screen shot, drawn 1to1 scale and measured the results. I would only be able to figure out a formula having already drawn it.

<p>I lined up the riser today and clamped it into what I thought was the right position. When measuring I had 310mm and 370mm right.</p>

Once I have the rafter ends cut to length to form the curve I can fix the decking riser. Once the ' rise ' is fixed i will overhang the decking tread and cut to length.

Draw it to scale?</blockquote></p>
<p>Probably a formula, but drawing is easier - also different types of curve possible.</p>

<p>Edit: drawn in plan obviously

They are the overall height and the distance to be travelled. Look at building regs for advice. The formula is 2r + g = nlt 550/ nmt 700

Sat, 29 Jun 2013 20:41:33 +0000tymbian5115263@http://singletrackworld.com/forum/<p>I'm after curving some decking steps thus...</p>
<p>Your looking at the decking, 4 steps left, 4 on the right. each step/ tread on the left is 250mm deep, each on the right 500mm deep, space in between 4m.<br />
I need a steady curve from 0 to 250mm ( which is the difference between 250 & 500mm ) over a distance of 4 meters. Say at an equal spacing every 400mm.</p>
<p>Is there a formula?
