I was trying to figure out how many chamber liters of fabricator it would take to be the same internal volume as a large microwave and I question my math, so I am seeking someone less math challenged than myself (namely anyone else at all).

The interwebz tell me 2 cubic feet is just under the largest size and should be easy to calculate. Since a chamber liter is 10cm cubed, I did the math and saw that 60cm is just short of two feet. Excellent!

The only problem is that 6x6x6 means 216 chamber liters to fill a large microwave. As the book says 100 chamber liters is enough for a human body, I have made a mistake in this somehow.

I know that I can’t fit two people into a microwave, so where did I go wrong?

Edit: I measured my own microwave and it comes out to 14x14x8.5. Much more modest. I think the interwebz idea of a large microwave is significantly bigger than my own vision.

If I run with 4x4x3 I get 48 chamber liters. That’s an interior volume of 15.748x15.748x11.811.

It sounds like a 50 chamber liter model is right. It would have been helpful to have rough sizes on those smaller sizes to help visualize them.

Edit 2: And I am still wrong but Geir set me straight. Thanks, man.
