How are the holes sized? For the threads to slide into hole...or are they undersized so you can "tap" them with the appropriate bolt? Curious if this will work for multiple sizes such as #10-24 or #10-32, and then I can "tap" with each different thread count.

the holes are just unthreaded holes. I use them very little, especially for measuring my drills. you can drill or tap them as needed.

Need to make a version that has metric and standard hex key posts to test the bit size needed as well.

Beau boulot !
Et pourquoi pas une version sans mesures de longueur ? On pourrait ainsi coller un réglet ou autre... donc une grande précision. Et métrique ou impérial ou une mesure venue de l'espace pourquoi pas :-D

Bonjour,

J'ai imprimé la version de poche en metric, mais je me rends compte qu'elle est compatible uniquement pour les vis avec têtes évasées. A tout hasard vous ne prévoyez pas de faire une version pour les vis avec les têtes qui vient avec les imprimantes Prusa ? Désolé je ne connais pas leur nom, mais en tout cas elles ne sont pas compatibles et la mesure pas assez détaillé

Merci d'avance et si jamais vous pouviez en faire un ça serait top
Cordialement

Bonjour,
Si vous mettez la vis dans le rail juste en dessous, avec une mesure sous tête (cf photo), ça devrait convenir ?

Merci pour votre retour si rapide, j'ai vu votre modèle sur le groupe FB Prusa FR.

Cela peut convenir oui et non, car la vis étant en biais elle va plus vers les 15mm que les 16mm de la vis, et comme pour l'instant je n'ai que des M3 avec des tailles décalés de 2mm...

Alors un peu de bricolage peut être nécessaire (voir photo). Pour plus de précisions, vous pouvez modifier le modèle manuellement à l'aide d'une étiquette et d'un stylo (peut-être aussi d'une loupe) pour l'ajuster. Vous pouvez aussi faire vos marques au cutter sur le modèle.
Avec les extrudeurs 0,4mm de nos imprimantes actuelles, la précision au millimètre près, est assez compliquée.

These are great - setup your account so I can buy you a coffee or something! Printing one right now, too cool!

Thanks! You just saved me $50!

For those of us regularly dealing with both imperial and metric, you could set up a model that combines both. I don't have the software to do it properly myself, but I'll use my janky solution.

That looks good to me, how did it turn out? I also run metric and imperial as I have equipment form all sorts of manufacturers. I have been looking for something like this. Any thoughts on posting this as a re-mix? I can do my own janky version, but I think you for the idea.

OK, I've got my own janky version now. I just combined the two pocket versions. I'll print it and see how I like it.

Combo Screw Sizer (Imperial/Metric)

It actually didn't turn out too bad. I should have put in a pause to add black filament, but I rushed to get the job on the printer before I left for the day. Black marker works in a pinch. I will add a couple of magnets so that I can hang this on my metal peg board. Pink chosen for it's ability to stand out.

In reality, I only use metric screws through 5mm, so I could cut this down. The Imperial side actually goes lower than I need, so I may have to modify this further. Measuring length is also longer than I need as I don't have much of anything over 2-3".

Oh, and I may add the measurements to the imperial side as I see both numbers referenced randomly it would seem. The screw number/measurement chart can be found at https://www.boltdepot.com/fastener-information/wood-screws/Wood-Screw-Diameter.aspx

Thanks again for the model.

well, it is nice and cool, but I have some issues.. I had layershift, dunno why, but okay you can't do anything about it :) but numbers are too thin I think, with my 0.4 nozzle, some of them are nor complete. unfortunately I noticed it after I printed it.

Hello, The graduations and figures are 0.5mm, so normally it works with a 0.4mm nozzle but I think I will increase to 0.6mm. I'll keep you informed.

Try toggling the thin walls setting in your slicer

Hello thanks for this feedback. All figures and graduations have a thickness of 0.5mm, normally it must pass with a 0.4 nozzle. but I will see to increase to 0.6.

thank you.
pocket version looks great, but with same "bug"

interesting in Cura it looks okay, but in PrusaSlicer it is wrong.

Great job.

(It would also be lovely in Imperial for those of us across the pond.)

Hello,
Thanks for your comment. There's a imperial version light and i'll working on an advanced version.

Très bonne idée!!! bravo.
Cependant, il semble n'être penser que pour la meusure de longueur de vis "FHC" (tête fraisée).
Je pense qu'une légère modification permettrais de meusuré la longeur "sous tête" pour les vis H, CHC, Poelier etc.

Encore bravo pour l'idée!

Merci pour cette remarque ! Justement, je travaille sur une version légèrement avancée avec ce type de mesure possible.
