first, there were simpler radially laced wheels. not a lot of math involved, you just rotate the proper amount, and you're there.
and, Drat!, again, as they be falling under the bus of harddrive death.
|but I'd actually real-worldly intently watched master wheebuilders, toyed with their gizmos that hold it nice and straight, trued to damn near perfection a coupla times, replaced spokes on my own and others' rides.|
thorns were crucial, and predated anything but radial lacing. now there's radial lacing in the thumbnail! what happened to that... center to out, of course. have a little monologue about the thorn in the comments of the .pov files. thorns can be removed without the use of and nor mouse. a little /* .... */ should do it. play games, experiment.
|so, took it upon myself to look to the everpresent lead of Sheldon Brown (RIP, brother) and figure a little math. and I did after contemplation, relaxation, and no uncertain amount of head-scratching.get my leading and trailing spokes all-a-straight. oh, and then I forget to put the nipples in.|
I remember nipples before, and see some code about boxes and boxes cut by cylinders... but I mnay be imagining stuff. imagining's fun! .pov files here. I swearz there was radial lacing macros... a little help?
soon I get the cassette going...
