Oh cool. Thank You. Someday a dial generator will be a very useful tool. I just don’t know when that day will be. (Now If I can only remember to search it out here.)

Note to future me: See, you knew you would need this. :slight_smile:

Cool find. I’ve done a few gauge graphics in the past and they were a pain to create.
This would be handy for all those steam punk folks.

Sure would have helped 30 years ago. I was using lowercase helvetica L’s and adding them as text to circles to create dial faces.

BTW people, you can make circler guages real using servos and pwm off a micro controller.
