Abstract

This quick square or carpenter's triangle is a product that can be found relatively cheap at most hardware stores. This product allows the user to make lines perpendicular or 45 degrees from an existing edge. The advantage of making this 3D printable is that it is cheaper and someone who does not have access to a hardware store may be able to obtain it if they have the capabilities to 3D print.
