Every now and again, we get a request to make a rocker panel that we just don't have the pattern for on hand. Here's one way for you to get that profile to us relatively simply, and relatively accurately.
*IMPORTANT NOTE: The best way to ensure an accurate reproduction is to send us an actual piece like the one in the pictures below. Doing it the way we're about to describe may affect the overall accuracy which means you might have to do some fitting! There are no guarantees on rockers made from scanned wire patterns.
What you need:
Below is what you need:
Start with a short piece of wire and a pair of pliers:
Keep bending and tweaking until you get something close to the original piece:
Next, stick on a strip of tape from the top to the bottom, and mark the apex of every bend.
If it's a large radius bend, try to make your mark as close to the center of the bend as possible.
Once that's all done, Take the tape off, and put it on a piece of paper with your wire
profile and a ruler and scan it. The ruler is required to make sure everything stays to scale.
You need to use a scanner, not a camera. Lens aberration, and shooting angles make things inaccurate.
Once you've got your profile scanned, email it along with the required length to: firstname.lastname@example.org
