1:1 printable templates

There are 1:1 printable templates for many of the parts. These are useful for checking part sizes by placing them on the paper or, for some parts, pasting the template onto plywood for cutting out. The templates are as a PDF, segmented to fit on regular letter (8.5x11") or A4 sized paper. A diagonal grid across all the pages makes it easy to align the pages when gluing them together as one sheet.

Also included are contiguous images that can be loaded into the free eval version of BigPrint (for Windows), which, on recognizing the images, will act like the full version while that image is loaded. This allows you to optimize printing for any size paper.

Building instructions

The plans also include extensive building instructions, with many photographs illustrating the steps of building the pantograph.
All the photographs (in the plans) can be enlarged by clicking on them.
