  • Computer or any device that can be connected to a printer
  • Printer
  • A3-sized paper or other desired material on which the guide will be printed


Step 1. Download.

Firstly, download the full-sized meter guide.

Step 2. Print.

Secondly, print the meter guide on your desired material, it can be plain paper, acetate, or others.

Note 1: Also ensure the size of the material is equivalent to that of an A3 paper (16.5inx11.7in).
Note 2: Also ensure that the printer scale is at 100% to avoid inaccuracies.

Step 3. Compare.

Lastly, compare the diameter of the inside bend depicted on the meter to the actual inside bend formed. If you printed the guide on an opaque material, place the meter guide behind or beneath the bent bar. Otherwise if transparent, then it can be simply placed atop the actual bent bar.
