Knowing the radius of curvature is essential when a product designer develops a product. During drawing a plan with a mock-up, they have to know the exact size of the mock-up. However,there are no tools to measure the radius of the object accurately and he has difficulty taking a measurement of the radius. So we present the concept tool in order to solve this inconvenience. Radius Measuring Tool is the device that calculates the radius. Product designers can use it by placing on anything which you want to know its radius. Radius Measuring Tool's surface follows the curve of an object as the material of the head of this tool is formed with silicon. As the surface is pressed by an object, the Smart Mash that is built in this device identifies the arc and calculate it in to a value of radius.
