What is the task at hand?

You have a set of 30 panels. You need to draw metal edges around the edges of all these panels. That’s easy, but it’s subject to certain specific requirements.

 

If it’s a Perth job then:

  • The metal edge can only be a maximum of 3.0m long.
  • Minimum distance: 0.4m long.

 

If it’s an Adelaide job these are the metal edge requirements:

  • The metal edge can only be a maximum of 2.4m long.
  • Minimum distance: 0.4m long.

That means you may need to do some maths. And you actually have to draw the things in. It’s a royal pain, and more than likely, you’ll make mistakes.
