Balancing Currency Kit
Kit Number: 7705
Reinforce the understanding of the value of coins and currency with this innovative kit. Use specially-weighted coins on our balance to allow students to explore the value of combinations of coins and/or dollars.
Note, this kit requires a minimum horizontal build volume of 133x133mm!
Note! All coins must be printed in the same color for the balance to work! This is because each brand and color of filament weighs a different amount.
We have also found that different printers do not all print in the same manner and so the preset values for infill may not work exactly the first try. Test any model you print before showcasing it in your classroom! You may need to reprint with adjusted settings.
We are working to create as many verified settings as possible to eliminate the need for your trial and error. If you have to adjust the print settings for your printer, please tell us the brand and infill amounts you changed it to so we can update it in our system.
Verified printer settings (these should require minimal to no adjustment):
- Dremel 3D20 IdeaBuilder
- Dremel 3D40 IdeaBuilder
- Makerbot Replicator 2, 4th Gen
- Lulzbot TAZ 1-4
