Amazing Folding Calculator PDF
I just received an amazing folding calculator PDF from my friend Brett Waterhouse at Burton & Mayer Printing. His PDF form will perform calculations and give you a template for all of your folds. While, is is not as robust as the foldrite plugin (read Steve’s review here), it still quite impressive.
When you first open the PDF you are asked the choose either a roll fold (and number of folds) or gate fold with the width and height of each panel. After you input these numbers you press calculate and you are brought to another page with all of the correct dimensions.
Being a geek, I had to take a look at the calculations happening behind the scenes in Acrobat. Therefore I grabbed my select object tool and edited one of the form fields to see what was going on. All you can see, there are some decent calculations going on, but at least I don’t have to do them anymore.
I hope everyone enjoys the PDF and has an enjoyable folding experience.
