Standard Y-shape scale ruler usually contains 6 scales, which may not be useful enough for professional design. These rulers, sometimes, are either too big to be carried around, or too small that the measurement cannot be read properly. T³ pinpoints all the problems and provide 12 scales, which can be split into 3 separate rulers, every detail in T³ is enhanced to provide better user experience.
Our concept of T³ comes from Tower Crane - an agile machinery that offers amazing lifting capability. We see geometry in the crane, more than just a physical triangular structure. These three-line shapes are often seen in architectural design as they provide strength and stability. T³ is designed in a way that a symmetrical triangle can be formed through using 3 of its individual triangular ruler, such design allows each T-ruler to carry 4 scales/graduations. With the built-in precise magnetics, T³looks no different from standard ruler, but it provides much more functions. T³ is a never-before-seen creative measurement tool.
Along with all our previous designs, T³ follows Yuan's principal concept that focuses on Geometry and Symmetry. T³ is a practical decorated tool, while showcasing its balance and harmony through its geometric patterns when observed from atop.
3 T-rulers with 12 scales are held together by precise magnetic design. Consider the habitual use of regular scale rulers, the 12 scales arrangement of T³ are carefully planned:
6 frequent used scales (same as standard scale rulers) engraved on outer triangle - 1:20, 1:30, 1:40, 1:50, 1:60, 1:100 while
6 special scales engraved on inner triangle - 1:15, 1:25, 1:75, 1:80, 1:125, 1:175.
Gently switching to either side of the T-rulers, you can easily measure with the right scale. T³is an ultimate ruler for architects and interior designers.
cm, Inch, Point and Pica in 1 ruler
A regular straightedge lacks Point (~font size) and Pica, the typographic units used in printing. By using T-ruler you can conveniently translate the measurements you see on screen versus that you see on paper. By combining these 4 measurements into one ruler, T-ruler is the one tool that you need to design for both print and digital.
