It has two arms, one with a sharp point/needle, the other with a pencil. These are connected at the top by a hinge allowing them to pivot. There are also a couple more things to know about the compass parts, just hover over the image to learn about them.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][mpc_interactive_image

A flexible compass can be easily altered, which is great if you want to quickly switch between larger and smaller circles.

Also called a Bow compass, this one comes with a wheel in between the arms. This can be adjusted to a fixed radius – great for higher accuracy, beginners, and children.

? The Best Setup

Ideally, we should use two compasses, one that is fixed and another that is flexible. When drawing Sacred Geometry we will return to the first original compass opening, that acts as the scale for our work.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row rtl_reverse=”yes” content_placement=”top”][vc_column][vc_column_text][ubermenu config_id=”sidebarbuttons”][/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
