      I started to get interested in slide rules lately and found a slide rule making page in slide rule universe but i cant find the one that fits to me. So, do anyone know the way to design a slide rule by yourself ?

        You can search for images of some prominent sliderules, such as Faber Castell, Aristo, K&E, Pickett, Hemmi, etc. Look carefully at the scale arrangements. Then

          Look carefully at the scale arrangements.
          Then you can start designing your own.

          This is how I would do it......

            If you tell me the scale arrangement you are thinking about, I can write a configuration file and upload the image for you.

              Long time ago, I created a small pptx that would allow you to create your own "fixed, circular sliderule", which e.g. is handy to have in your purse for exchange rate conversions.  I know this probably isn't what is asked for, but I thought I could just as well make it available.  So take a look at http://www.engsig.com/2017/06/19/the-exchange-rate-circle/

                    I have developed a program which reads text
                    configuration file and produces scale image PDF file.
                     (preliminary version is available in Files section.)  I
                    am writing documents for the program, but my father passed
                    away last month, so the work is currently
                    suspended.
                    If you tell
                    me the scale arrangement you are thinking about, I can write
                    a configuration file and upload the image for
                    you.
