Paper Ruler to the Rescue

Fri, 8 Nov 2013

I put together this paper mouse model whilst #truelove was watching 'Strictly' on the telly. I'm pleased with how its come out so my next step is to convert it to the computer. Measuring up curved parts is tricky with a traditional ruler. Time to print out a paper ruler!

You've seen this project right? The paper ruler is a free download from here. Print it out onto paper, make sure that you set the print size to 100% then simply cut out the appropriate paper ruler for your needs. 

The paper rulers are great for measuring curved surfaces or for getting into the inside of awkward places, there is even a paper protractor for measuring angles.

Perfect. Lets get this mouse measured up!
