3D Printing - Pentominoes
I love using my 3D printer to create resources that can be utilised by my students. Maths is one of those subject areas that really benefits from having access to hands on equipment. These pentominoes are perfect for helping students better comprehend 2D shapes, area, perimeter and tessellation in a hands on way.
This file is NOT designed for students to create or manipulate. It is designed for teachers to print their own class set of pentominoes for use by their students.
With your purchase, you will receive a zipped file containing:
- The .STL file (of all 12 pentomino styles)
- The .OBJ file (of all 12 pentomino styles)
- A printing guide to keep track of each numbered pentomino style
To design the templates, I used a free online program called Tinkercad.
My 3D printer is a Flashforge Pro, however the files will work with all 3D printer types.
