How to use this exercise?
The model will be used for coordinates verification. By using a calliper, students will verify and check some measures. It will be also useful for knowing the 3D printer limits
Number of pieces of this exercise
The model is composed of a single object that contains different geometries with different features, such as: curves, overhangs, hollow parts, engraved and embossed text, holes, pins, and many more.
All the features are implemented over a printed basis

How can the model be used in class?
This model can be used and adapted for teaching how to use callipers.
The model is used also for testing the 3D printer and know what limits it has (features, accuracy…)
Also, the students can do all the changes they want. So, teachers can also explain how to design in CAD.
What benefits can its use have?
-Learn to design with different CAD software.
-Know how to use and read a calliper.
-Obtaining measures in the CAD software and checking them on the 3D printed piece.
-Learn the 3D printing process.
-Understand 3D printing limitations.
Can it be used in other subjects?
– Computer Design
