Rafter Bevel Angles

This rafter calculator app is for the WorldSkills Carpentry Competition training or use to verify the art of carpentry. With this app the carpenter can verify their geometric layout method while using the traditional layout geometry. It has seat lip cut (claw) angles at the hip rafter for all of different types of rotated rafters as well as Hexenschnitt Gratsparren. Coupe de pied de noue, avec dévers inegaux.

All bevel angles are referenced from the traditional layout methods used by the French and Germans carpenters. Use with the French Rabattement de Surface method (folding roof surface) or the German Flachenklappung method. Basiswissen Schiften or Charpente Les Traces. Use with Traité Théorique et Pratique de Charpente by Louis Mazerolle or Handbuch der Schiftungen by Manfred Euchner or Draw Down Technique --> Abklappung
