Roman arch: construction elements
Model for independent construction of the Roman arch. Assembling the model requires students to exercise motor coordination, fine motor skills, as well as logical thinking and patience. The model is particularly interesting because it seems to 'defy gravity' - the blocks, instead of falling, hang in the air. The model is related to the Montessori method and will be particularly useful during early childhood education classes, physics and when working with students with special educational needs.
The model consists of 6 elements - 5 bricks and a stand.
Among the files to be printed you will find:
Single elements files:
Roman arch - brick - individual brick
Roman arch - stand
Files with sets of elements (so-called plates):
Roman arch - set - set of all elements
Roman arch - set of bricks
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 printbed.
