Atoms and chemical bonds: building kit
A set of elements allowing the construction of different models of atoms and covalent bonds. It consists of 4 types of beads symbolising atoms of different valency and three different linkers symbolising single, double, and triple ionic bonds.
The model will be particularly useful in chemistry classes.
NOTE: Four blank beads are included, allowing you to work out for yourself which atoms they symbolise.
The model consists of 48 printable elements. It has been prepared in such a way that it is possible to print the elements individually or as part of group prints.
The file with a visualisation and caption of the individual elements can be found on Skriware Academy: [VISUALISATION] Atoms and chemical bonds: building kit
Among the files to be printed you will find:
Single element files:
- Single atomic bonding: linker symbolising a single ionic bond,
- Double atomic bonding: linker symbolising a double ionic bond,
- Tripple atomic bonding: linker symbolising a triple ionic bond,
- Molecule with 3 holes (no name): ball without any with three holes (smallest)
- Molecule with 5 holes (no name): ball with five holes,
- Molecule with 6 holes (no name): ball with six holes,
- Molecule with 8 holes (no name): ball with eight holes (largest).
Files with sets of elements - so called plates:
- Atomic bondings - set of bondings,
- Group 1 - group of atoms with valency I,
- Group 2 - group of atoms of valency II,
- Group 3 - group of atoms of valency III,
- Group 4 - group of atoms of valency IV,
- All groups molecules - all atoms.
Model size (XYZ): individual bead - 24 x 25 x 25 mm.
Printing time: set - individual bead - 30 min to 1 h 3 min/ file "All groups molecules" file - 26 h 53 min.
Filament quantity: set - individual bead - od 9 g do 17 g / file "All groups molecules" - 406 g.
Recommended filament type: SkriPLA / PLA.

Some parts of the model are very small, so be careful when removing them from the 3D printbed and when removing the support.
