Repeated measurements of the same violin can show small variations. Similarly, thickness measurements using a 'Hacklinger' external magnetic gauge may have a small margin of error.

The CT Scan cross-section "slices" images include a centimeter scale. The selected "slices" are in customary arching template positions:

  • Lower bout widest point
  • Lower corner just below the f-holes
  • Middle bout just above the f-holes
  • Upper corners deepest part of curve
  • Upper bout widest point
  • Lengthwise Horizon
  • = 10cm.
