Many people know what 3D printing is and others may have seen one in action or even have printed toys or household items. However, many new users have stalled out after creating a few items, and have trouble going beyond that point. To get past this point, the second volume of 3D Printed Science Projects Volume 2 provides more stories and models involved in open-source repositories.
3D Printed Science Projects volume 2 by Joan Horvath and Rich Cameron describes open-source 3D printable models that can help educational and scientific users learn physics, math, engineering, and geology. This book allows the reader to create a wide range of projects and provides a large volume of information suitable for advanced science fair projects. Each of the eight topics in this book is designed to explore creative activities using 3D printed objects. To download a selection of models for this book, visit 3D Printed Science Project Models.
This book shows parents and teachers how to use the models inside as starting points for 3D printable explorations. Students can start with these models and vary them for their own explorations. Unlike other sets of models that can just be scaled, these models have the science built-in to allow for more insight into the fundamental concepts.
