Cosplay Calipers

Couple of things. First is the name cut into the calipers. After my first print broke shortly after, it became clear to me that doing this compromised the structural integrity of the calipers. I would recommend not cutting all the way through. Just cut a MM or two into it. Secondly, I found that adding rosettes into the inside of the caliper pivot area, helped keep the calipers from moving as you measured the distance.

thank you i wish i saw this before i printed a batman helmet that seemed to be 2 small that took 34 hours to print hahaha so ty u solved my problem :D

Hello I have the Ender 3 printer how to make this small enough to fit my bed is there a smaller version ?

You should be able to scale them down in Cura or Simplify3D... or even in Meshmixer to fit your bed. Or you could cut them in multiple parts and super glue them together

Thank you sir !

scale it down to 80% and u should be good lol i did that and it still works great and i got a big head lol

Thanks mate will try 80%, so big head = pillow head, kidding =P

Two notes. When you print, make them extra thick. The Cosplay Calipers label will make them extra flimsy, and they'll likely break after a few uses. But if you make them 2.5x thicker, you'll overcome that. It would have been better to use raised letters instead of letters cut all the way through.

B) it would be great to add a measurement gauge on the round section. But I printed a pair.

Would you mind uploading the .SVG for folks with lasers?

Just uploaded the SVG file!

Thank you for making this!

Thanks for checking it out ;)

Is it possible to make this on a 20x20 bed?
Or will the caliper be to small to use?
Want to start with cosplay, but only have an Anet a8.

Give it a shot! It doesnt take up much filament at all and the full sized version only took a few hours to print
