This is the file necessary to create a 3D printed model of the Ocean Floor. You can use this in your classroom so your students can have a hands on experience with the topography of the Ocean. Using this file you are able to make as many prints as you need for your class.
You must have access to a 3D printer to print the model.
This product contains the .stl file to print a custom model of the Ocean Floor labeled with the main features for the study of Ocean Floor topography.
Also included is an Ocean Floor model without labels so the students can practice learning those features. You will also receive a .pdf Ocean Floor worksheet/quiz which matches the model and the answer key.
If your school, school system, even public library has access to a 3D printer all that is required of you is to hand this file off to the individual running the printer and they will be able to print you out this custom model for use in your classroom.
Your own personal print settings will decide how long the print takes. I printed the model photographed on 'High' resolution and the print took just over 10 hours.
You must print this before you plan to use it in class.
The model in my photo was printed with a brim using PLA on a Flashforge Finder
