Yes - It's Really Free
would any software company give away software for free?
We want increase our name recognition in the tube fabrication market,
and I feel that this is the best way to do it. This program can be
thought of as our electronic "business card". So, feel free to copy the
software and pass it along to your friends and colleagues. If they have
access to the web, then please let them know that this software is
available for downloading without charge.
The calculator contains a set of hard-to-find math tools that are used
often by tube fabrication engineers. Our plan is to on adding new
features to this program from time to time, so you may want to check
our web site periodically for the ATT Calculator version. Every time we
add new features, we will also increase the version number so you can
know if you need to perform a new download. We want your suggestions
for future versions, so please let us know if you have ideas for new
Finally, in order to give credit where credit is due, I want to
publicly thank Rod Malone (TRU-VAL TUBING, Waterford, Michigan) for
giving me the idea for this calculator.

A new Tube Flattening section
has been added to the Advanced Tubular Technologies Calculator. It is
designed to aid tube and pipe fabricators in determining how to set up
tooling to create a flattened area on a tube.
Right Triangle Angle Calculatorallows
you to enter the two base lengths of a right triangle to calculate the
angle nearest base A and the hypotenuse length. (The hypotenuse of a
triangle is the leg that spans at an angle from point 1 of base A to
of base B.)
Foot-Inch Sum Calculator allows you to
distances in the Foot-Inch-Fraction format without
the hassle of making the different distance units common.
(Click on the image of the Foot-Inch Sum page to see a close-up of the
To use this calculator, enter the WHOLE FOOT, WHOLE INCH, and
values, then press the PLUS (+) button to add the positive value of
your distance in
the list. The NEGATIVE (-) button is used to add the negative value of
in the list.
As you add values to the page, the calculator automatically sums all
the values in the
list and gives the answer in the lower box. The answer is given using
denominator value possible (for example, 1' 6-2/16" is always changed
to 1' 6-1/8" ).
the Sum List
The three buttons, Delete Row, Clear List, and Edit Value
are used to control
the list of values.
Delete Row to delete a value from the list.
Clear List to clear all values in the list to start over.
Edit Value to place a list value in the edit boxes for editing and
The program can also adjust the list by using a pop up menu that is
displayed by right clicking on the sum list.
The fractional accuracy of the answer can be controlled by adjusting
the Greatest Denominator radio buttons. For
example, if the greatest denominator is
set to "16", then the answer will never include fractional values of 32
or 64. The
answer adjusts automatically as soon as you choose a new radio button.
The tangent distance is the distance from the
tangent point of a bend to its intersection point. Click on the image
of the Tangent Distance page to see a close-up of the image. The image
will visually demonstrate the tangent distance.
The calculator uses the Radius and Bend Angle values to calculate the
tangent distance value immediately.
arc length is the length of an arc of
a bend. Click on the image of the Arc Length page

Conversion Calculator converts values
from one unit to another using a pre- programmed multiplier value.
To convert from millimeters to inches, select the Millimeters
to Inches conversion from the pull-down list and then enter a
value in the "From Millimeters" box. The conversion value is displayed
immediately in the "To Inches" box.

This version of the program is pre-loaded with 102 conversions.
this version of the calculator, conversion data can now be loaded from
data files organized by type like distance, volume,
weight, pressure, etc. You can even save a group of your
favorite conversions to your own file. If you don't find the conversion
that you need, then you can add it to the list and store it in
whichever conversion data file is most appropriate.
Base Calculator 1
first Right Triangle Base Calculator calculates the
values of the two bases of the triangle given the hypotenuse
length and the hypotenuse angle.

Triangle Base Calculator 2
second Right Triangle Base Calculator calculates
the values of the hypotenuse and one of the bases of the triangle given
the other base value and the adjacent

Have you ever needed a calculator "right now", but left yours in the
brief case, in the car?
Click on this page and use the Advanced Tubular Technologies calculator
or load the standard Windows calculator.
Click on the image of the Windows Calculator page to see a close-up of
the screen image.
Every calculated value in the ATTCalc program can
be copied to the Windows clipboard so
that it can be used in other Windows programs.
Also, using the clipboard, you can solve for a
value in Millimeters and then copy the result value to the Conversion
page for conversion to Inches, or Feet, or whatever.
COPY a value, select that value using
the mouse or the shift key and then press Ctrl-C.
PASTE a value to a box, select the edit
box where the value is to be placed and then press Ctrl-V.
CUT a value in an edit box, select the
value and press Ctrl-X.
