It would be even better if raised mm and inch numbering and raised hash marks were built into to caliper body allowing one to pause and switch to different color for the final raised numbering and hash marks layers. But paper works for now. Thank you.

Hey Northhill, sorry it took way longer. I uploaded 2 more versions of the caliper, one has the numbers carved and another has the numbers extruded out. Have a go at it and let me know how it goes : ) Cheers!

Hey Northhill,
I wanted people to be able to scale it up or down before printing. But Ill upload the version with numbers on it in a half an hour.

Thank you. I understand that allowing for scaling is an important feature that keeps it flexible for many uses.

hello could someome please make this shorter about 10 cm long so it can fit on my printers bed thank you

Hey techfreek24, you can now find a shorter version of the caliper in the files. Credit goes to No_Thingi

Hello, can you make the shorter version with numbers (cm) please?

I originally made it simple so it can be scaled down for smaller printers but I'll upload a shorter version too

Nice looking design. What method did you use to stick the ruler onto the print? Do you have anything to keep the ink/toner from wearing off?

Hey phr0ze,
I just used a cheap glue stick to stick it on and it worked great for me, I don't think mines gonna wear off but if you're concerned I would stick transparent packing tape over the paper ruler, that will make it both waterproof and also wear proof.

please make a ruler for use with inches and inch fractions

You will find another PDF with inches called "Inch ruler".

Sorry, there is no such file. There is only one PDF file

Download it again, I added it after you left your comment :)
