3D model description
The Curl Paddle Wheel helps demonstrate how the curl of a vector field is a measure of how good the represented forces are at causing rotations. It is also useful in explaining circulation and Stokes' Theorem.
For 20 years I had wanted a model of this after fumbling with whiteboard markers and other random props laying around my classroom. This was one of the earliest items I designed and 3D printed and I have used it every semester since.
Designed in Mathematica.

Approximately 111 x 111 x 196 mm. Printed with supports.

I am a high school math teacher and 3D printing hobbyist. I have been 3D printing since 2017 and enjoy making things for my classes and my own children and home in San Diego, California, USA.
I have a 3D printing sub-site abbymath.com/3DPrinting. See my video on YouTube and my user story written and published by Simplify3D. I design with Mathematica, CorelDRAW, Fusion 360, and Tinkercad. I love my MakerGear M3-ID and my Palette 2S Pro. I have a Monoprice Mini as well.
