Description
 

The Versa Ruler™ is the first scalable system of rulers which allows for the fluid creation of unlimited, multi-sided shapes! Simply snap into place the desired side/angle configuration and start sliding into a new dimension of shape-building. Rulers pivot and slide on a track, and can be connected end-to-end for extended lengths and proportions. Instantly convert to metric scale and/or left-handed orientation by flipping Versa Ruler set onto the opposite side.
With a new set of revolutionary features, the Versa Ruler™ is not only a handy and versatile tool for any studio or workshop, but also a powerful visual learning tool for students of all ages. The possibilities are limited only by the creative imagination.



NEW SET OF CAPABILITIES
  • Measure, draw, or cut perfect shapes repeatedly
  • Lock angles & sides with rotating protractor
  • Scale shapes in proportion
  • Lock angles & sides with rotating protractor
  • Snap Versa Rulers™ end-to-end to extend side lengths
  • Connect additional sides or angles to create desired configuration
  • Clamp objects for crafts
  • Flip sides for US Standard or Metric scales

IN THE STUDIO

Free up the time to focus on being creative by increasing the accuracy and consistency of tasks where repetitive measuring and marking are required. Use Versa Ruler™ to form dimensional grids, create geometric art, patterns and mandalas— and scale unlimited amount of shapes quickly, accurately, and enjoyably. The sliding + rotating protractors allow you to work effortlessly in one-, two- and three-point perspective— with the on-the-fly ability to resize any configuration by adding or removing sides and angles.

Turn any surface into an advanced drafting machine that outperforms even the most expensive drafting tables.
** By connecting straight edges to create a track, multiple sliding connection points can move laterally, and multiple "rails" can be laid down (clamped) along table ends to create as simple or as intricate a system as is desired.

The Versa Ruler also serves as a handy cropping tool that allows you to visualize your frame and does not require you to lift and reposition rulers for subsequent marks or cuts.

IN THE CLASSROOM

The Versa Ruler™ offers an exciting, hands-on way for students to experience and learn about shapes, geometry and spatial relations. Breathe new life into the ancient principles of Euclidean geometry by visually conveying abstract concepts in physical form. While the possibilities are endless, some of the more common close-ended shapes that can be made are:

Triangles, squares + rectangles, trapezoids + parallelograms, pentagons, hexagons, septagons, octagons, sided-spirals and more.

Use on a blackboard or whiteboard to inscribe perfectly measured shapes every time. Encourage exploration of proportions and relations that make learning a more interactive –and by extension more effective– process.

IN THE WORKSHOP

The Versa Ruler™ isn't just a drafting tool. It is fundamentally an angle-measuring and locking system. Not only can you make perfectly-angled miter cuts consistently, but you can create any proportion or scale prior to making cuts. Save time by forming a template that can be easily traced for creating multiple, congruent shapes.

The Versa Ruler™ can also be used as a light duty clamping system for holding glued parts in a close-ended frame. Its rubber-to-plastic contact on locking mechanism ensures a firm, but forgiving grip.

ON THE CUTTING TABLE

Creating beautiful quilts is, for the most part, an exercise in constructing and deconstructing geometric patterns in fabric. Use the Versa Ruler™ to not only help in the initial design of the piece, but to subsequently measure and cut blocks from within the larger pattern.
