    Kerryandjane's Cat Cut Curve Calculator.

    Hi guys,
    I've spent a few days in hospital over the last few days with a sick daughter. I had so much down time I managed to bore myself into a excel frenzy. One of the small things I built is the Kerryandjane's Cat Cut Curve Calculator. Of all the gems i've taken from hammock forums please consider this a widows mite if you will.

    Features:
    • Curve plotted on a fabric sized graph.
    • Ability to change the Interval
    • Weight cut estimate (BETA)
    • Metric friendly

    Sneak Peak:

    While there are others out there, (e.g. Xtrekker's Curve Calculator is the main one I've used.) I thought I could build off these and take the pros and make improvements. I've added a few things I find useful and thought others might find useful too.

    Download from here for imperial or here for metric. (the only difference between the two are vertical graph scale. (56 units for imperial, 142 for metric)).

    It's very rough around the edges but please let me know what you think..... all suggestions welcome.

    Update:

    Hey folks, I've made some changes to the Kerryandjane's Cat Cut Curve Calculator see image below.
    I've rounded the decimals to the closest "1/8".
    For example 1.35 will be 1 3/8".

    This should save a little guess work and scratching of the head.
    Download the updated imperial calculator here
    Enjoy!
    (Please tell me if you find errors or can recommend features.

    My inner Excel geek is jumping for joy at this. Actually, my avatar pic is me smiling at an Excel spreadsheet.

    No prob and thanks. The hospital visit was at the end of last month for 2 days. She had a reaction to a mosquito bit which brought on a high fever and hives....Just a scary moment for new parents. My daughters 100% fine (with the exception of having me for a dad).

    I knew I wasn't alone. What could make you grin that much? End of a excel marathon? I don't get to play with excel often these days but when I do I have to set myself a time limit I tend to fix things that aren't broken.
