3D model description

Exclusively on Cults!

I love getting my hands on this Ellipsoid. Students are so familiar with spheres, but it is often a new experience to handle a shape like this. The radius in each of x, y, and z axes is different.

I designed a base to hold it because I knew it would otherwise just roll around on the shelf and I wanted it to display at the same height as the other surfaces.

Created with Mathematica and printed on my MakerGear M3-ID.

Note: Some files are rather large since I was working to get a very high resolution. I created these in Summer 2018.

See the rest of my collection. They were all designed and printed to stand at the same height, to work well for display by me during discussion in front of a classroom, and to be large enough for students to get their hands on them to really feel the shapes and the curves. We refer to these often throughout the course.

3D printing settings

Approximately 193 mm tall in the longest direction. I used supports to print the ellipsoid. The base is a separate model.

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.
