Five - A NEW Compact Marking & Measuring Tool

€9,037

251

// Présentation en Français à la suite //

Design from experience.

For more than 6 years, I studied and worked as a cabinet maker in France.

When I was in the workshop, I always used special tools for special tasks.

A few years later, when I started studying Product Design, I wished to create something that could be an alternative for specialised tools that we may not always have to hand and that are expensive.

Five is an intuitive tool, made in France, that marks and measures every step of your project. From creation to production.

Two models. Two aims.

Both for right and left handed users.

Black & Layered Edition : 

The layered Edition is composed of two different layers. 

Thanks to the references they create when connected to each other, this product can be used in multiple ways as a square, a protractor, a ruler and more ...

This Edition is made out of 3 mm screen printed PS Shok Matt and polished. Therefore, it creates a better perception of the features and contribute to the product's aesthetic.

This tool has been optimized for production stages but can also be used on paper thanks to its double-sided screen prints.

Clear & Slim Edition :

The Slim Edition is composed of a simple transparent layer.

Thanks to the 4 reference pins, this product can be used in all the ways of the Layered Edition, with the added advantage of being storable in a notebook.

This Edition is made from one layer of 2mm screen printed PET which allows you to see through and to get a global vision of your work.

This tool will let you sketch intuitively and fits into any notebook but can also be used for the production stage.

Having one of each helps you to be more versatile in the workshop or on paper.

What makes it different from usual tools ?

Five is more than a simple tool, it is a creation & production partner that fits into your pocket.

It is an efficient product that goes with your flow.

These features are the product's basics but more can be found to be always helpful.

Packaging.

Five is sold with its black or white packaging cover that can be kept to protect it.

What if the goal is reached ?

The money earned with this Kickstarter will help me to launch this product to market. A website will be created with a larger choice :

- 3 different sizes 

- Metric and imperial

- Different material Edition : Stainless Steel, Wood, coloured ...

Conception par expérience

Pendant plus de 6 ans, j’ai étudié et travaillé en tant qu’ébéniste en France.  

Durant cette expérience en atelier, j’ai utilisé toutes sortes d’outils pour répondre à des besoins précis …  

Quelques années plus tard et pendant mes études en Design de produit, j’ai souhaité développer un produit qui puisse être une alternative à un outillage dont on ne dispose pas toujours.

Five est un outil intuitif, fabriqué en France, qui vous permettra de tracer et de mesurer tout au long de vos projets. De la création jusqu’à la réalisation.  

Deux modèles. Deux applications.

(Pour gaucher ou droitier.)

Édition Noire en deux épaisseurs :

Cette édition est composée de deux épaisseurs créant ainsi plusieurs références. Ce produit peut être utilisé de plusieurs manières : rapporteur, équerre, réglet et plus encore …

Ces épaisseurs sont réalisées à partir de plaques de 3 mm en PS Choc brillante et mate sérigraphiées, ce qui, en plus de contribuer à l’esthétique du produit améliore la perception des fonctions.

Cet outil a été optimisé pour une utilisation en volume mais peut également être utilisé à plat sur papier.  

Édition Transparente en une épaisseur :

Cette édition est simplement composée d’une épaisseur transparente. Grâce aux quatre points de références, ce produit peut être utilisé comme l'édition en deux épaisseurs avec l'avantage d'un rangement plus simplifié.

Cette épaisseur est réalisée à partir d’une plaque de 2mm de PET transparente sérigraphiée, ce qui permet, en voyant à travers, une utilisation plus intuitive.   

Cet outil a été optimisé pour une utilisation à plat mais peut également être utilisé en volume pour la fabrication. 

En avoir un de chaque offre une plus large polyvalence entre la fabrication et l'usage papier.

En quoi cet outil est-il différent ?

Five est plus qu’un simple outil, c’est un partenaire de création et de fabrication qui vous accompagnera au quotidien.  

Ces fonctions sont les bases de ce produit, d’autres peuvent lui être attribuées pour le rendre toujours plus pratique.    

Packaging.  

Five est vendu avec sa pochette de protection cartonnée Noire ou Blanche en fonction de l’édition choisie.  

Et si l’objectif est atteint ?  

L’argent récolté grâce à ce Kickstarter me permettra de lancer ce produit sur le marché. Un site internet sera créé avec une large gamme de produits :  

- 3 tailles différentes  

- Unités métriques et impériales  

- Différents matériaux : Acier inoxydable, Bois, Couleurs … //

Remerciements

Merci à Jean-Charles Queffelec de m'avoir aidé pour les photos et vidéos, à Guillaume Heck pour ses dessins, à Bertrand Letourneur, Jean-Yves Guilet & Arnaud Balduc pour leurs conseils, à Neil Carmichael pour le temps qu'il a passé à prototyper avec moi et à la correction de ce document. Merci également à mes amis qui m'auront soutenu sur ce projet.

Risks and challenges

The final prototypes have been made with real industrial techniques and in collaboration with the chosen manufacturers, Five is now ready for production.

The crutial manufacturing process was to make sure that the cut would be perfectly aligned with the screen print patterns. The manufacturing tolerance is about 0.1 mm.

// Les prototypes finaux on été réalisés avec les bonnes techniques de production et par l'entreprise choisie pour la réalisation de cette série.

Le point le plus délicat sur ce projet a été de s'assurer de la précision quant à la découpe des panneaux sérigraphiés. La tolérance de fabrication est de 0.1 mm. //
