## What is triangular ruler?

A triangular scale is a ruler that has a 3-lobed cross-section with 6 different types of scales on the edges (2 on each face) used for measuring and preparing scale drawings such as blueprints and maps. It is also called an architect’s scale.

## What is the triangle shaped tool called?

set square

A set square or triangle (American English) is an object used in engineering and technical drawing, with the aim of providing a straightedge at a right angle or other particular planar angle to a baseline.

**What are different types of rulers?**

Types of Rulers

- Desk Ruler. The desk ruler is very common and is most often the instrument associated with the term ruler.
- Steel Rule. A steel rule is a straight flat piece of metal, very similar to a ruler.
- Carpenters Rule and Folding Rule.
- Seamstress Tape.
- Architect Scale.
- Tape Measure.

### What are the two types of triangle ruler?

The two types available, the 45-degree triangle and the 30/60-degree triangle, are named by the size of their acute, or small, angles. The 45-degree triangle has a 90-degree angle and two 45-degree angles; the 30/60 degree triangle has a 90-, a 30- and a 60-degree angle.

### What is an architectural triangle?

One of the most recognized geometric shapes is the triangle. Triangles are identified by the three angles that are linked through line segments to form a three-sided shape. The two most common triangular forms used in architecture are equilateral and isosceles.

**What are math rulers called?**

line gauge

A ruler is also known as the line gauge, is a mathematical tool used in Geometry as well as in many Engineering applications.

#### What is protractor used for?

Geometry

Protractor/Calculation supported

#### What is metal ruler?

Steel rules, also called rulers, are essential in any shop when accuracy matters. Steel rules come in rigid and flexible versions. While their primary purpose is accurate measurement, they can also be used as guides for laying out lines, and if rigid enough, for cutting.

**What shape is a ruler?**

A ruler is a measuring instrument marketed in standard intervals and units. In definition, it can be any rigid material used to create or trace straight lines. It can measure distances and lengths. In engineering, multiple ruler types are used – protractor, triangle, T-square and the regular straight ruler.

## What is a sewing ruler called?

A sewing gauge is a ruler, typically 6 inches long, used for measuring short spaces. It is typically a metal scale, marked in both inches and centimeters with a sliding pointer, similar in use to a caliper.

## What does a pediment look like?

Pediments are gables, usually of a triangular shape. They are found in ancient Greek architecture as early as 600 BC (e.g. the archaic Temple of Artemis). Variations of the pediment occur in later architectural styles such as Classical, Neoclassical and Baroque. A pediment is sometimes the top element of a portico.

**What is the use of triangular ruler?**

Triangular scale rulers, scale-measuring devices that are triangular in shape, are used by architects, engineers, builders and designers. They are marked with a range of scales or ratios, used for making or measuring reduced-scale drawings like blueprints or floor plans.

### What is the bottom triangle on the ruler?

Move your mouse cursor to the two triangles on the horizontal ruler. The top triangle represents the first line of your paragraph. The bottom triangle is the left indent of the paragraph.

### What are two names for a triangle?

A triangle with all sides equal is called equilateral, a triangle with two sides equal is called isosceles, and a triangle with all sides a different length is called scalene. A triangle can be simultaneously right and isosceles, in which case it is known as an isosceles right triangle.
