**Center-to-center.**

**Measure**the**center**-to-**center**distance from the place where the new**pipe**will be installed (66 inches).- Subtract both fitting dimensions (66 - 5 - 5 = 56).
- Add the amount of engagement for both fittings (56 + 2 + 2 = 60).
- Cut a
**pipe**the length of the total (60 inches).

Furthermore, how do you measure center to center?

The **Center-to-Center** of any drawer pull is the distance between the **center** of one screw hole to the **center** of the other. **Measuring** the **center-to-center** of the drawer pull is key in determining what new hardware will fit and whether you'll need to drill new mounting holes or fit into existing ones.

**Pipe Elbow Center Calculation**

- Elbow length in mm = Tan(Elbow Angle/2) X Elbow Radius in mm.
- Where:
- Same procedure applies to 3D elbows.
- Calculate elbow center to end dimension for 4 inch nominal pipe diameter elbow at 60 degree angle, cut from 90 degree LR elbow.
- Length = Tan (60/2) X 152.
- Length = 0.57735027 X 152.
- Length = 87.757 i.e. 88 mm Approx.

Keeping this in consideration, how is pipework measured?

**Measure the Outside Diameter (OD) of your pipe or pipe fitting:**

- Wrap a string around the pipe.
- Mark the point where the string touches together.
- Use a ruler or measuring tape to find the length between the tip of the string and the mark you made (circumference)
- Divide the circumference by 3.14159.

**How to Find the Center**

- Lay the square on top of the circle, with the right angle touching the edge.
- Mark the circle where the sides of the square cross the edge of the circle.
- Using a straight edge (one side of the square works great), draw a line connecting the two marks.
