3D model description

da Vinci Bars/Sticks for architectural or mathematical constructions. 80mm or 100mm by 6 mm by 6mm with 7 symmetrical notches.

They can be used for children to experiment with da Vinci domes or bridges, which could be as frustrating as eye-opening! Simple as they are, these sticks can be used to explore a variety of mathematical ideas. At times, team work is helpful or even required. As always, print a bunch and allow children to teach us adults how to make use of them. Or better yet, play with them!

How I Designed This
So easy to design. Sketch a rectangle, make some notches using patterns if you like, and then extrude. Use parameters to enrich the activity and allow easy manipulations later on. This could be used as an introductory design project.
