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….

Every Tuesday is Art Tuesday here at Adafruit! Today we celebrate artists and makers from around the world who are designing innovative and creative works using technology, science, electronics and more. You can start your own career as an artist today with Adafruit’s conductive paints, art-related electronics kits, LEDs, wearables, 3D printers and more! Make your most imaginative designs come to life with our helpful tutorials from the Adafruit Learning System. And don’t forget to check in every Art Tuesday for more artistic inspiration here on the Adafruit Blog!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
