Radius Gauge

I downloaded a radius gauge yesterday and thought it to be handy. However, it lacked a few sizes I wanted. So I made my own. Be advised it's a work in progress and the final version will be updated in this post. This gauge is printed with my only printer, the Ender 5. I am printing this in PETG. You will have to adjust as needed for your filament. My settings are as follows:

Nozzle temp: 240C
Bed temp: 85C
Retract: 6mm @ 55mm/s
Print speed: 65mm/s
Z hop before when retracted

You will most likely need to use a drill bit if you have the sizes but shouldn't need to in order to accurately form the center holes.

The gauge needs some tweaks to allow for easier measurement on the outside radii. I tested with my metric drill set and there is resistance caused my the corners of the radius. I also need to figure out why the inside holes have voids around them.

Interesting. I don't have a use for that at this time, but now I know where to find it if I do lol.
