September 9, 2008

I needed a pair of shrouds for my Celestial Navigator rocket, so I looked online for a shroud calculator. The choices I found didn't thrill me (as I don't have a ruler marked out in inches to three or so decimal places) so I wrote my own.

Results are presented in decimal inches (to three places), fractional inches (accurate to 32nds of an inch) and millimeters (rounded up).
