3D model description

I needed to measure the inside walls of a vessel which had varying thickness so I designed these claws to fit to my vernier calipers to do the job. Obviously, these are a perfect fit for MY calipers. If yours are different they won't fit but if yours look similar, it might be worth a try at just under 1 hour print time for both claws. Or just print one claw and try it.

They are not a mirror image of each other i.e. the dimensions are slightly different between the left and right hand claw.

You will need to orientate the objects in your slicer so that they are flat on the bed, as shown in image 6 (my goof when creating them).
