    After many long months it's finally ready to go.

    Thanks for all the advice PyroU members!

    Jason, I plan on changing the builder to handle 12 tubes row (in a few months).

    I'll be PM'ing some of you for a free custom built rack over the next few weeks.

    Awesome job, Eric!

    From a programmer stand point, I try and break things.

    Therefore I've noticed that when you set an angle, then change the color of the rack. The angle resets. Nothing big but that might get annoying if someone cant pick the color they want.

    Good call! That seems to be the only thing I can find wrong with it. It's quite nice. Maybe there could be a statement that tells the customer to choose the color first. I did a rack with 5 rails with all custom angles, and the angles all reset. It still only takes a few seconds to get them back to what you want though. Nice tool Eric. I also like how it shows you an instant price. Very cool.
    Is there ever enough Pyro?

    The angle of the rack changes back to the default zero degrees if you change anything in the "Mortar Tubes" section also, not just the color section.

    Is it simple to add a "lock angles" selection when you're finished creating them?

    Also is that an estimated price or is that exactly what you would have to pay?

    Epyro,

    Seems to be a price difference. A 6 shot rack created with custom tool - no tubes, no spacer, no base plate is 7 bucks more than Rack Sleeve, 6-shot listed on the website. Is this a bug or is it something different?

    No, it's not a bug. The builder computes price based on several factors. The price for the setup you made might not be the best price. I need to take a look and see if I can adjust this.

    Remember, this is a custom rack designer, so this means there will be additional costs because each rack will be custom made. Therefore we must be charge more than a "canned" rack we sell.

    I also realize this is PyroU, the best of the best, and I know many people on here are not interested in this because they are already are experts at this stuff. I'm just trying to leverage your awesomeness to make it better those new to rack building and those who don't actually want to build a rack. So the prices may cause some question why it might be pricey.
