GROUP A

We approximate this experiment will take 20 minutes to complete. For any questions, please email Anna Baytosh at anna@artifex.tools

STEP 1: Find the Rooms

Identify a building you would realistically do an as-built drawing for. Only use the AFX-10 to measure rooms with 4 walls. Find a space where you can measure 2 rooms in the same building. This can be a personal office, residential house, actual project, etc.


STEP 2: Reference Control

  1. Keep the device turned off and using a compass app on your smartphone, set the device so the laser is pointing North, 0 degrees (see Figure 1 below)

  2. Turn on by flipping black switch

  3. Take measurement by pressing red side button

  4. Turn off device by pressing black switch


STEP 3: Measure the Space with Normal Tools

Use your normal measuring and drawing tools for this part. Hand draw a sketch of your spaces and label with accurate dimensions. Draw your approximate walking path on your sketch (see Figure 2 below). Label this drawing, “Normal Tools”


This will help us tremendously, as we are working to recreate spaces from scratch and would appreciate a sketch for comparison!


STEP 4: Measure the Space with the AFX-10 as you “Normally” Would

Be mindful of the path you are taking, we will ask that you draw your path on your pencil sketch drawing.

  1. Start at Room 1

  2. Turn the device on by flipping black switch

  3. Measure the room as you normally would with a standard laser measurer, taking as many measurements as necessary to understand the room’s length and width

  4. Set the device down on the ground with the laser pointing up (do not turn off)

  5. Draw a new sketch of your space with dimensions and your approximate path on your sketch (see Figure 3 below). Label this drawing, “AFX-10 Normal”

  6. Move to the next room and repeat steps 2-4

  7. Turn off device by flipping black switch


STEP 5: Measure the Space with the AFX-10 Using Only 2 Measurements

  1. Start at Room 1

  2. Turn on device by flipping black switch

  3. Hold device against the wall immediately to your left with the sensor facing outward

  4. Take 1 measurement by pressing red side button

  5. Move to adjacent wall and take 1 measurement the same way

  6. Draw a new sketch of your space with dimensions and your approximate path on your sketch (see Figure 4 below). Label this drawing, “AFX-10 Strict”

  7. Move to the next room, repeat steps 1-6 for 2 rooms total

  8. Turn off device by flipping black switch


STEP 6: Email Photos

By the end of this experiment, you should have 3 total floor plan drawings. It’s acceptable if the dimensions vary from drawing to drawing. Take photos of your hand-drawn floor plans and email to anna@artifex.tools

Conclusion

Thank you for participating in the development of our product. A survey will be sent to your email address and we ask that you answer honestly. Please place the prototype and the charging cord back in the box the way it was packaged and drop off at the nearest USPS with the prepaid label. Levi will be in touch in the coming weeks with survey details. 


Thank you for participating in the development of our product! We appreciate your time and feedback.
