If there is a bug, I'll find it.
I split it up, came out the same.
what I said! Just tried it and it makes a much taller template
Might let Kevin (Capt P) know
That second one you uploaded still has zero in stove offset?
I split your 51 to 25 and 26
uploaded taller template
More weirdness-my input page shows the split at 25/26. .
Thanks muchly Mole, I'll take that and run with it. Large cone incoming....
@Mole yes bigger pot bigger muffin..will use the pattern you've shared just need to get some alu foil to cut it from...the proper size caldera works great but its the compactness of the setup with UCL that is nice to have as an option...
@Teepee is the pot Evernew 900 ml "squat" version or Evernew 900ml pasta pot?
The Evernew pot is actually a Snowpeak. ( I always mix the two up) A Multi-compact Ti set. I've edited the post above.
The cone came out the wrong length, about 4" short. It will fit the 600 pan though with slight some adjustments and good for playing with the hole setups.
Are you sure the circumference you measured is correct?
did the ally foil take the weight ok or have you not been able to test. Plenty more here for you if you narced it all up
ive only been trying to get shot of it for 5 years lol
Triple checked dim's and all correct.
Ally foil felt fine. I'm sure it's strong enough for this but not able to test yet. The weight of the pot will be taken by the FF burner, so all the foil needs to do is stop the pot falling over.
@Mole pattern tweaking..I had to shorten the circumferance or wasnt sure where two pieces need to be joined...any conecting points on the pattern I should look at...
I don't know what happened to you. That pdf is what I used to make mine. Works fine. Have you got your printer dialogue set to print pdf exactly as intended? I had to untick "shrink to fit" option.
See this pic?
the red points to the tab fixing areas. Green is the parts you cut out - trapezium at top, small triangles at bottom. Dotted line is where you fold the lower tab. The other end of the cone is the opposite way around. The ends of cone overlap so tabs meet cut out trapeziums and hook over.
Its looking like the myth of difficulty remains unbusted
Well, at least There's the option of buying off Stormin. Though it's a pity he doesn't acknowledge that he's using the script.
I am using a script Mole,there are other cone scripting tools out there and Kevin Beeden is indeed a great innovater. The folding tabs were originally for the softer more pliable aluminium, so they worked and were easy to form. I am now rejigging the script for a new closure method to the lower part of the split cone to suit my material.
@Mole thank you for clearing the joints to me..I was more thinking of the "length" when the cone is open up out but that's probably due to not knowing where two cut paper pieces should be joined together...it fits inside the pot nicely though....
Were you a politician?
No, but I do like the look of the expenses options
I'll just point out that there is a detailed set of instructions for using the script that can be downloaded at zenstoves, alongside the script generator front end. These instructions address a number of points discussed here, including how to accurately cut the tab and slot joints (prick the tip points of the slot and tab before cutting).
 And how to split the tabs in two for thicker flashing or less ductile Ti.
The zero burner offset/flame gap doesn't cause any problems in PostScript; I didn't expect it to, because it's never used in isolation.
I notice the flasing that Tacblades bought from the US in made in the EU. (edit: hmmmm... Estados Unidos)
If only we could find out where...
Searching for the description on the label gives Spanish hits, but, whilst they're for roofing materials, they seem to be more about extruded sections than flashing. Something lost in translation...
Sadly, the second point I need to make is a reminder that the script is not for commercial use, either as provided on OM or zenstoves, or any modification of the script or templates it generates.
The reasoning behind this is that Trail Designs have a US patent on their Caldera Cone, and the Clone respects that patent, in line with UK patent law, where DIY use is not a patent violation. The script, and the Flissure joint, are my intellectual property, and I think that gives me the right to determine how they are used. I'm delighted if people want to use the script to make clones for themselves, but not to exploit my work, and that of Trail Designs, for their own commercial ends. I hope everyone finds this reasonable.
The maths to draw truncated cones is pretty simple. If you want to make and sell custom cones, write your own tool, and please don't use mine.
It is made in Mexico not Spain
Written my own script,with help from your generator.Thanks for your dedication to a great project.
stormin, care to share your script ? (in the spirit of captain paranoia for non commercial use), I'm sure many a DIY'r might be interested.
You cannot be serious!
