A coordinatograph is a machine that precisely cuts rubylith. It was used to create photomasks for early integrated circuits including the Intel 8008. A scaled version (e.g., 100X) of the photomask would be cut and peeled in rubylith, and then the rubylith image would be photographically reduced.[1]
