Chemical dices: chemical compounds
A set of models consisting of 2 eight-sided dice with the symbols of the elements. The dice will serve you as a tool for conducting educational games in chemistry lessons - for example, when practicing knowledge about creation of the chemical compounds names.
If you would like to get ideas and inspiration about using these models during your lessons please check out our Skriware Academy suggestions: “How chemical compounds are named” lesson: https://academy.skriware.com/lesson/36.
The set consists of 2 models. The files in the set have been prepared in such a way as to be printed separately or as a 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:
- Chemical dice 1: a model of an eight-sided dice with the symbols of the elements (H, N, Cl, O, Mg, P, K, S),
- Chemical dice 2: a model of an eight-sided dice with the symbols of the elements (Na, O, Fe, Cu, H, C, Ca, Ba).
File with sets of several elements:
- Chemical dices - set: both models of eight-sided dices with the symbols of the elements (H, N, Cl, O, Mg, P, K, S) and (Na, O, Fe, Cu, H, C, Ca, Ba).
Model size (XYZ): a plate with all elements ("Set" file): 64 x 33 23 / single cube - 31.55 x 31.55 x 23.10 mm.
Printing time: set - 1 h 34 min / single cube - 53 min.
Filament quantity: set - 27 g / single cube - 12 g.
Recommended filament type: SkriPLA / PLA.

Before printing in the Slicer window change the orientation of the model on the worktop to one of the dice sides.
After printing the model, it may be necessary to remove support elements from the grooves with letters. The easiest way to remove them is with a knife or tweezers.
If you find that the edges of the model are too sharp, you can smooth them with sandpaper.
