# What Is an Octagon Layout Calculator Used For?

**An octagon layout calculator is a tool that aids carpenters in the task of laying out a perfect regular octagon.** This tool can calculate all the dimensions of a regular octagon based on a single one.

A regular octagon is a closed, 8-sided, geometrical figure where all sides are of the same length and all internal angles at each vertex are of 135 degrees. The common dimensions of an octagon are side length (s), height (h), main diagonal (d), minor diagonal (c), area (A) and perimeter (p).

Since all its dimensions are interrelated, they can be calculated with just one of those dimensions as a reference.
