Over the past few months I’ve been watching the amazing and festive work of Jeremy at 4volt.com. Today’s find was a diy laser cut caliper.
Here are plans for a simple caliper, handy to have around the shop for measuring thickness and diameters. Anytime I can build something that helps me build something else I am always pleased.
The plans should be as accurate as your cutter or printer is, I actually used this project as a collaboration for my laser.
Don’t have a laser? Then print your own!
If you don’t have a laser you can print the PDF and glue the paper down to any flat material and cut it by hand.
He writes in is concise explanation:
…I posted about a coin that I laser engraved and enhanced with some paint, but did not post step by step instructions. With a recent project for Midnight Research Labs, I had a chance to take some more pictures.
I engraved the coin in the regular way and then painted over the whole sheet with a standard acrylic spray-paint.
By keeping an ongoing record of his work, Jeremy is helping his own project development and keeping us a part of his community of making.
Thanks for sharing, Jeremy, keep up the inspiration!
