This product contains the files necessary for you to print out your very own 3D Model of the Moon Phases. This model allows students the opportunity to manipulate the moon phases hands on.
You will receive two .stl files which contain 7 moon phases and a dish which fits the phases.
The models are labeled on one side, and blank on the other. This allows the model to be used as an introductory concept and later practiced based on memory.
The 3D model allows students to correctly orient the different phases so they can practice their understanding of the concept.
You will also receive a .pdf worksheet which contains the same contents on a printable sheet of paper. Allowing you to simple cut out the different phases. This sheet does not require a 3D printer.
If your school, school system, even public library has access to a 3D printer all that is required of you is to hand these files off to the individual running the printer and they will be able to print you out these custom models for use in your classroom.
Your own personal print settings will decide how long the print takes. The model photographed, was printed on 'Standard' resolution and the print took just over 5 hours.
You must have access to a 3D printer in order to create this model.
It is recommended to print this before you plan to use it in class.
The model in my photo was printed using PLA on a Flashforge Finder
