Unfold creates physical tools for digital measuring #ArtTuesday

Unfold creates physical tools for digital measuring, from Dezeen:

…Unfold worked with British interaction designer Penny Webb and Dutch design and research lab Kirschner 3D for the Of Instruments and Archetypes project, which is launching at an exhibition during Dutch Design Week.

The team has created a caliper, a tape measure and a protractor that translate the real measurements they take of an existing material or object to a digital file.

“These instruments can then be used in an application where archetypical, parametric objects can be customised with exact measurements and materialised by digital production techniques such as 3D printing,” said Unfold.

Starting with a simple base design, the measurements taken adjust the parameters of the digital file to make different dimensions longer, shorter, wider or thinner.

The three instruments are made from wood and brass, designed to look like their traditional forms and to be as simple as possible….
