Function General

This is the panel to design a new rod which has a straight taper, or sometimes be useful to make anyway a dummy taper for designing taper from "scratch".
By using this panel together with the modification capability of Dimension input panel,  user can design a rod with the method of "slope and stand up" of dimension.

How to use:
Specify three dimension numbers explicitly on the first three points (e.g. point 0, 5 and 10 for 5" interval) of specified PF station interval.
Specify the stand up number as slope per inch.
Specify the unit of figures.
Specify if swelled butt is to be designed or not.  Swelled butt is designed according to the formula of Everett Garrison.  For longer rods than 8 feet, Maximum swell is designed and for shorter rods, Minimum swell is designed automatically.  If you want to change this, you can use Dimension Input Panel to change dimension at each point.
