Measuring the Dimensions of an Object
If you’re going to make a 3D model of an actual object, then you need to determine the dimensions of the object. A nice tool that you can use is a digital caliper. It’s a versatile measurement tool with good accuracy. It can be used to measure the thickness or width of something.
It can measure an inside diameter or the distance between two edges.
It can measure depth.
It can also make step measurements.
After doing my research, I bought the I Gaging EZ Cal Digital Caliper and I’m very pleased with it. It’s got a nice large display and it measures in millimeters, inches, and inches with a fraction.
