Dial caliper is a further refinement to the vernier caliper. Technically it can be used to:

. Measure inside dimension.
. Measure outside dimension.
. Measure step dimension.

As for the construction, a small gear rack drives a pointer on a circular dial. The dial is usually arranged to be rotatable beneath the pointer, allowing for differential measurements.

Typically, the pointer rotates once every inch, tenth of an inch, or 1 millimeter, allowing for a direct reading without the need to read a vernier scale. The slide of a dial caliper can usually be locked at a setting using a small lever or thumbscrew; this allows simple go or no-go checks of part sizes.
