How to find the number of increments for a circle?

If you know your individual increments in exact degrees, find the number of increments to enter by dividing 360 by your degree increment. eg: a thread pitch is 24 threads per inch. So 24 x 360° = 8640° rotation per inch. To find degree increments per 0.001″ (1 thousandth of an inch) divide 8640 by 1000 to get 8.64° increments.

How to calculate the travel of a circle?

So 24 x 360° = 8640° rotation per inch. To find degree increments per 0.001″ (1 thousandth of an inch) divide 8640 by 1000 to get 8.64° increments. Each 8.64° of rotation equals 0.001″ travel. 360° / 8.64° = 41.667 increments per 360°.
