In the world of design, speed can sometimes be a necessity, with deadlines constantly approaching, and the Messograf pen is a crucial tool for those who're pushing the very edge of their project timelines. The pen helps speed up industrial designers and engineers by including one of the most commonly used tools directly on the tool itself: a caliper and ruler.

There are all sorts of reasons why one might need to use a caliper and ruler in the middle of sketches, from taking measurements in order to pass those sketches on to others to simply recording information that might be valuable for oneself. In any case, the calipers on the Messograf are incredibly precise, measuring to one one-hundredth of a millimeter. At that degree of measurement, designers can be comfortable in the fidelity of their sketches.
