A model of a first order lever with adjustable support height and a beam with numbers and weights. Thanks to the hooks on the beam and the set of hanging weights, the model can be used as a tool for self-exploration of physics and mathematics laws and principles.
The model will be especially useful in math, physics and technology classes.
If you are looking for inspiration for a lesson using this model, check out our suggestions on Skriware Academy: “Commutative property of multiplication” lesson: https://academy.skriware.com/lesson/82,
“Equations with one unknown”: https://academy.skriware.com/lesson/83.
Note: The model requires assembly before use.
In the printing files you will find 5 elements needed to assemble the lever model and also files with weights. 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:
- Support: a support part,
- Support rail: a support rail,
- Locking key: a locking key for adjusting the height of the prop,
- Base: a lever base,
- Beam: a lever beam,
- Counter: model 1 weight.
File with sets of several elements:
First order lever - set: models of all parts needed to build the lever and 38 weights.
Visualization and descriptions of individual elements can be found in the model assembly instructions: [ASSEMBLY MANUAL] First-order lever.
Model size (XYZ): folded model - 163 mm.
Printing time: set - 11 h 28 min.
Filament quantity: for the set (all lever elements and weights) 133 g.
Recommended filament type: 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.
