Atom building kit
A set of models showing the individual elements of the structure of an atom. It has been designed so that students can learn about the differences in the structure of different atoms and assemble models symbolizing them on their own.
The kit will be especially useful during classes in chemistry, nature and physics.
If you would like to get ideas and inspiration about using these models during your lessons please check out our Skriware Academy suggestions:
“Electron shells” lesson: https://academy.skriware.com/lesson/33,
“Periodic table of elements” lesson: https://academy.skriware.com/lesson/34,
“How chemical compounds are named” lesson: https://academy.skriware.com/lesson/36.
The files in the set have been prepared so that individual models can be printed individually or as part of one printout.
If you want to print more copies of the selected item, you can use the multiplier in the slicer ("multiply model" function). Use the "+" and "-" buttons to set the desired number of models and the slicer will automatically place them on the worktop.
Among the files to be printed you will find:
Single item files:
- Nucleus of an atom: a model of the atomic nucleus,
- Atomic shell K: a model of the electron shell K,
- Atomic shell M: a model of the electron shell M,
- Atomic shell L: a model of the electron shell L,
- Protons: a block with the inscription 1p symbolizing 1 proton,
- 3 protons: a block with the inscription 3p symbolizing 3 protons,
- 5 protons: a block with the inscription 5p symbolizing 5 protons,
- 7 protons: a block with the word 7p symbolizing 7 protons,
- 1 neutron: a block with the inscription 1n symbolizing 1 neutron,
- 3 neutrons: a block with the inscription 3n symbolizing 3 neutrons,
- 5 neutrons: a block with the inscription 5n symbolizing 5 neutrons,
- 7 neutrons: a block with the inscription 7n symbolizing 7 neutrons,
- Electron: a block with the inscription e symbolizing an electron,
- Ionic bonding (TPU): a block that symbolizes an ionic bond.
Set Files- the so-called “plates”:
- Nucleus with atomic shells: a model of the atomic nucleus with electron shells,
- Neutrons, protons, electrons - set of cubes symbolizing protons, neutrons, and electron (1p, 3p, 5p, 7p, 1n, 3n, 5n, 7n, e).
The file with the visualization and signatures of individual elements can be found on Skriware Academy: [VISUALIZATION] Atom: building kit
Model size (XYZ): plates - 43.05 x 133.94 x 12 mm to 193.00 x 179.89 x 12 mm / individual elements - from 15.00 x 17.32 x 12 mm to 100.37 x 100.37 x 8.5 mm.
Printing time: individual elements - from 11 to 4 h 9 min / plates - from 1 h 22 min to 15 h 43 min.
Filament quantity: individual elements - from 3 g to 5 g / sets of all elements - from 160 g to 264 g.
Recommended filament type: for the “Ionic bonding” model: SkriTPU / TPU; for other models: SkriPLA / PLA.

Some elements of the model are very small, so be careful when removing them from the 3D printer's worktop and when removing the support elements.
Models can also be used during a remote lesson by asking students to perform a practical task with their use. For this purpose, you can use Tinkercad or any other 3D editor.
