3D model description

Inspired from a commercial product made in metal and with a ruler in inches, this caliper fits in any pocket and alows to mesure inner or outer dimensions up to 5 centimeters.

Just find a piece of nail or whatever fits in the holes to articulate both parts. A personnaly used the last segment of a old broken antenna. It gives a shiny finish !

After that, print the ruler. Put a doubled sided adhesive tape on its back and cut it to size.

With the caliper on "0" position, carefully put the ruler in place. You'r done !
