Important Measurement Techniques
In order for the instrument to obtain accurate and repeatable measurements, the bottom of the shoe must be flat on the surface to be measured. When measuring curved items where a flat surface is not available, a fixture should be used. A fixture allows accurate positioning of the sample tangent to the measurement plane. If the item to be measured is smaller than the shoe, you may want to make a platform—at the same height as the item—for the rest of the instrument to sit on. The instrument can also be used with the shoe fully extended 180° from the closed position. A measurement is then activated using the Read key.
