Made a bunch of custom rulers as gift for a quilt guild. 40 some customized rulers out of the medium clear acrylic.
And I like how they came out!
These are engraved on the “back”. I used “flip” in Inkscape to reverse the image before engraving.
I used this engine to create my base ruler.
Just remember- those are lines in the ruler … so you need to make sure they have a good stroke, convert to object, and then a fill for the engrave. (wasted some time forgetting that step).
I’m sure the recipients were surprised!
The vector ruler maker is worth the price of admission! Nice share.
Had to use a 67.49500 scale over 48 inches to get it right in Inkscape
What do you mean by your scale comment?
Selecting the whole ruler gives me a 36" wide object. Note the 1/2" grid lines.
I used this file today to create a ruler, too. Mine was on wood, but I really like your flipped image on acrylic!
