GYM GOATS, I’m talking about the Excel sheet for footing design. People use this design all the time and don’t get very far with it. If you don’t understand how to use a particular technique, like triangles, squares, etc., don’t stop doing it, instead, just keep using the next technique until you become proficient.
Let’s go over a couple of points of how to make use of triangles. The first is to shape the triangle into a straight line, then take the hypotenuse and make a vertical line. You want to make sure that the vertical line is a constant length. From the line created, you can draw a circle that represents your ball.
Now, the second method of making a footings is by filling in circles. This can be done using an Excel sheet. It involves using a graph, or some kind of a chart. Take a picture of your ground, in this case, the same as the one in the bottom right of your screen. It might be helpful to have a lot of photos in your area so that you can identify any differences between your ground and the picture.
The first step in constructing your outline is to choose the surface on which you are going to build your grounds. I recommend using the picture that you took in your area. Now, you need to enter the dimensions in. Once you have entered the dimensions, you will be able to make the circle or your graph. It will be pretty easy to determine if you have made the right choice based on the graph or image that you have in your computer.
So now, once you have the picture, what you are going to do is divide the area that you are working on into several sub-areas. At the same time, you are going to use circles to define each area. Do this for each footings that you are working on. You will now want to line up all of the circles so that they form a neat ellipse. To do this, you will take the area of the footings and divide it up into four equal parts.
Now, when you are doing this, you will want to start working in a place where the ball is. You will start at one corner of the ball and work your way towards the center. Now, while you are doing this, make sure that you are holding a height rod. This is a piece of metal that you will use to locate the ball.
Here’s how to make footings using triangles: First, you start with a starting point, but you must remember to follow the contour of the actual ground. To do this, you will need to divide the area that you are working on into four equal parts. Once you have done this, you will need to take your circle or graph and draw a straight line from the top of the triangle to the point that you want to start from.
Now, you want to work your way down the bottom part of the triangle. After you have reached the bottom, you will then make another straight line from the center of the bottom triangle to the starting point. Then, once you have completed this circle, you should repeat the procedure for the top portion of the triangle. All of these steps should be done using an Excel sheet.
