Machining Math Fundamentals: Pythagoras Theorem
Marc from G-Code Tutor talks about how we can use the Pythagorean theorem to solve triangles. Often as machinists, we need to solve geometric problems to calculate points of the path of our cutter. The go-to for most angles is to pull from our knowledge of trigonometry. If we know the length of two sides of our right angle triangle, we can quickly calculate the length of the remaining side by using Pythagoras’s theory. In this video, Marc gives us a refresher lesson on using this formula. For complete machine shop maths training check out the GCodeTutor Machine shop maths course here.
