Getting started

This page has moved to:


  1. Hiya...I am trying to apply this technique for my study in which I am trying to take photographs of bat skull. But I have a few queries on printing the check board pattern. I would like to know the paper size on which the checker board is printed and I didn't get the scaling that you are mentioning in that tutorial...Look forward to hearing from you...many thanks..

    1. Hi Anoob,

      You can print the checkerboard on the standard size of paper that will fit in your printer, 8.5" x 11" for example (US). By adjusting the scaling you can make the checkerboard smaller than the paper size and then just cut the paper down to size.

      The scaling formula that is shown on the "Measuring checkerboard square size" page might only be valid for certain printers, particularly US printers. If the scaling formula doesn't work then it's best to measure the checkerboard square size using the method described.

      I'm just finishing up major updates to StereoMorph (version 1.5) and will be releasing it on CRAN in the next week or two. The new version is much more user-friendly and includes a new tutorial and example project. I will post on the blog as soon as v1.5 is available - I hope that will be useful to you.
