Custom sized rulers for digital fabrication.
DXF Ruler Generator
Quickly create rulers for digital fabrication.
Generate DXF files for laser cutting and engraving custom sized rulers, which can then be easily manufactured at the nearest FabLab.
This project consists of a Python script that takes an Integer as argument to draw a ruler's 2D profile of the given size, in centimeters.
The output file uses the .dxf extension, which can be used for laser cutting and engraving.
- Python 3.6+
pip install dxf-ruler-generator
The following command will create a file
ruler_7cm.dxf on the current working directory:
This is how the file looks like when imported on a laser fabrication software:
- 0.0.4: specify Python 3.6+ as required version;
- 0.0.3: print generated file abspath;
- 0.0.2: 'dxf-ruler-generator' works on CLI;
- 0.0.1: Initial release;
You might need to enable the importing of dxf text on the laser fabrication software. Here's an example on RDWorksV8:
