Enter the number of sides of an object into the calculator to determine the correct wood angle cut.
Angle Cut Formula
The following formula is used to calculate a miter angle cut.
A = 360 / S / 2
- Where A is the angle cut in degrees
- S is the number of sides of the object or corner
Angle Cut Definition
What is an angle cut? An angle cut is a measure of the angle required to set a miter at for cutting wood into a desired number of sides.
How to calculate an angle cut?
- First determine the number of sides.
For this example, we are attempting to cut a piece of lumber into a 4 sided object.
- Next, calculate the miter angle.
Using the formula above, calculate the angle cut. 360/4/2 = 45 deg miter angle cut.
