## Description

This app lets you enter a dimension andquickly calculate a set of other dimensions which are pleasing tothe eye when used with the dimension you entered. For example, ifyou know the width of some project like a chest or table you cancalculate possible heights and depths that will make an overallnice-looking piece. The app also has a second page where you cansee what various combinations of width, depth and height look liketogether (it only shows a solid block but you can imagine it beingyour chest or table - or building!). This app is not only usefulfor experienced designers and artists but for beginners (includingchildren just learning arts and crafts) who wish to learn thebasics of what generally "looks nice" and why.

You enter the starting dimension using the two entry fields,labeled either "ft" and "in" or "m" and "cm" depending on ourchoice of units (set in "Settings" menu). It defaults to ENGLISH,which uses feet and inches and allows fractions (to 1/32") ordecimal notation (choose using the "Settings" menu). For furnitureprojects you may choose to leave the ft (or m) field blank and justspecify the total dimension in inches (or centimeters). For largeprojects like buildings you probably want to use the ft/m field.The app will handle any combination you enter. With your startingdimension entered, click the "DONE" button on the keyboard tocalculate other pleasing dimensions. The app uses the "goldenratio" and also the "3-4-5 ratio, displaying each in a scrollablebox.

The golden ratio is any dimension either multiplied by ordivided by 1.618... You will see that this app calculatesdimensions both smaller and larger than your starting dimension.The 3-4-5 ratio means that if a dimension A is proportional to twoother dimensions B and C in the ratio of 3:4 and 4:5 (or multiplesof these) then the shape will be pleasing to the eye. This appcalculates three different sets of 3 dimensions, using the startingdimension as the "3", then as "4" and then as "5".

Once you have calculated the lists of pleasing dimensions, youcan swipe to the left to visualize any combination of thesedimensions using the graphical page. Initially, this app displays ablock with width, height and depth equal to the starting dimension.At the top of the screen you see 3 spinners for width "w", height"h" and depth "d". Touch any of them to pick a different value fromthe calculated pleasing dimensions (you do not have to keep thestarting dimension if you do not wish to). The block changes sizeto stay within the screen but is always to scale and uses yourchosen w, h and d.

Once you have decided on a width, height and depth for yourproject you can select & copy the values from either thespinners on the graphical page or from the lists on the startingpage.
