Backstory: I do a lot of work with a design house that specializes in teaching underpriviledged inner-city kids about art, design, 3D modelling, architecture, etc. Basically, the kids run the printers into the ground, I come in and fix them.
So when the guy in charge of the design house found out about the FT-5, he was ecstatic. Good price, good learning opportunity. So my model stems from needing to help a couple of high schoolers quickly and efficiently put together an FT-5. BEHOLD, THE SCREW MEASURER (tm)!
Finished picture first:
What I needed was a quick and simple way to go through all the hardware and easily identify what it was and where it was. I also needed this method to be visual and tactile. The above is version three, but we used two of the measurers and the build went very smoothly.
In progress pictures:
And here it is in use!
Looks like that's a 40mm M3!
Thanks for looking, and good luck to you all!
