What is Array Y Dimension

Array Y dimension is the vertical dimension or size of an array. It represents the measurement of the array in the Y-axis direction. The Y-axis is the vertical or bottom-to-top direction in a two-dimensional system of coordinates.

To calculate the array Y dimension, several factors need to be considered. First, the available space in the Y dimension should be determined by subtracting any required margins or rails from the total available size. This ensures that the calculation takes into account any additional elements that may occupy space within the array.

Next, the spacing between individual boards within the array should be added to the size of each board. This accounts for the gap or distance between the boards and provides a more accurate measurement of the total space occupied by each board.

Once the available space and board size with spacing are determined, the number of boards that can fit within the Y dimension can be calculated. This is done by dividing the available space by the total size of each board (including spacing). The resulting value is usually rounded down to the nearest whole number.

Finally, the overall size of the array in the Y dimension is calculated by multiplying the number of boards by the total size of each board (including spacing) and adding any additional elements such as rail size. This provides a comprehensive measurement of the array in the Y direction.
