A set of 7 models depicting phases of the Moon, the Sun, and the Earth. The models are designed to demonstrate how the image of the Moon (as seen from the Earth) changes during different stages of the Earth's orbit around the Sun.
The set will be particularly useful for early childhood education and geography classes.
The set consists of 7 elements. The files in the set have been prepared so that the models can be printed individually or as part of two prints.
Among the printable elements you will find:
Waxing gibbous / Waning gibbous
Waxing crescent / Waning crescent
First quarter / Third quarter
Files with sets of elements (so-called plates):
Moon Phases - set: A set of items representing Moon phases,
Sun, Earth and additional Moon phases - set: A set of items representing the Sun, Earth and additional Moon phases.
NOTE: To obtain the full set of moon phases you need to print both plates.
Model size (XYZ): a single model of a Moon phase and the model of the Earth - 50 mm x 50 mm x 4mm // the model of the Sun - 60 mm x 60 mm x 4 mm
Printing time: a single model - 19 - 43 min. // Moon Phases plate - 2h 35 min. // Sun, Earth and additional Moon phases plate - 2h 56 min.
Filament quantity: a single model - 10 g // Moon Phases plate - 47 g // Sun, Earth and additional Moon phases plate - 50 g
Recommended filament type: SkriPLA / PLA.
