Hey gang, I've been getting a fair few requests to email these to people, so I just thought I'd make a link here. These are the accurate router or laser cut files you need to make your own perspex (or wood, I guess) templates. It's an EPS file, you can open with Illustrator or the like.

I've used stick fonts as the text, since I was using a CNC router, and it couldn't engrave such small detail, but if you're using a laser cutter, then you could always throw a rebel symbol on there or something.

Anyway, it took a long time to get the measurements exactly right for the curves, but my pain in your gain! Enjoy!

My hackspace just got a laser cutter (yay!) so I want to cut myself some range rules and templates. But I can't open the file, I've tried GIMP which should be able to handle .eps but throws an error.

Is there any chance you could put up an SVG?

Hey, I hope you dont mind. I Used your file as a base to create 3d print files. I have a 3d printer but no laser cutter! I added numbers and arrows. I also made it so the long range ruler can be printed in two pieces and put together after printing. The files are available for free on thingiverse. I hope you guys like them!

I loaded these up and printed (laser cut) them but they came out smaller then the regulation cardboard ones...

Did I possibly mess something up (i saved the .svg into .pdf to then print from .pdf) in settimg up the file to print or has anyone else had trouble with the sizes?

Sorry mate, i haven't run into that problem... did your laser cutter try and "fit image to page" type thing by any chance?

How much smaller did they come out?

Yes I believe that might have beed the case.
Fit to scale when transfering to .pdf.

Thanks for reply

I'm looking for the various tokens in .svg for laser cutting.

Focus
Evade
Shield
Stress

for example.

Any leads?
For some reason, the ones on this file seem to raster but not vector (cut) out of the acrylic sheet...

I'm also looking for laser cutter templates if anyone has created anything? I have access to a cutter and these would be fairly straight forward to cut with a file properly prepped for it.

Yeah the curved templates (turn and banks) are slightly too small, the straight manouvers are good though. I suggest editing the file or finiding another one.

Would you mind posting this link again. It says it no longer exists. I have had the hardest time getting the size right.
