Metal model-drawing ruler/template?

Postby nansk » Thu May 02, 2013 7:57 pm

Hi

The $2 plastic model-drawing ruler from Popular broke twice. Are there metal model-drawing rulers/templates available?

It is very important to have this ruler or else a lot of time is wasted drawing models in Maths.

Thanks in advance

I thought I am biggest buyer for this item...lost count of how many I have bought because the boys kept breaking them. Now I stock them up in cabinet for emergency :evil:
My DS is told metal ruler is prohibited in school, so I do not think metal model ruler is exception.

Thank you for your reply. My dd uses a metal ruler; it is not prohibited in her school. The markings on plastic rulers fade after a while, and the edges lose their sharpness. Metal rulers are more durable.
Sigh... I really hope Popkids will produce a metal model template soon!

Yes, it is the "big rectangle with few squares n long bars in it". As it is the only product of its kind available in bookstores here, I doubt you bought the wrong one. There is no other "one" to buy.
Thank you for your reply.

There's no rule against free hand model drawing as long as the drawing is neat. Think parents buy the ruler becos it helps the kid to draw faster.

There's another type of model ruler. Here's their website. It's a local company.

I really thk schools should allow the use of model rulers.
I told my kid to go free hand to save time esp during exams but he is just too used to using normal ruler since P1 and acc to him, the teacher insists that they must use it.
