Using zSpace Studio Our latest STEM software has a number of new features to enhance the experience of interacting with 3D models in zSpace. • • • • • • • Print Preview Dissect Measure Cutting Plane Annotations Tour Builder Activity Builder Print Preview Preview models for a 3D printer Dissect Explore the internal and external geometry of models Measure Measure objects based on real-world scale The Cutting Plane Cross-section analysis both with and without internal geometry Annotations Add labels and explanations to models Tour Builder Create guided tours and presentations of models Activity Builder Create your own lessons and guided activities, just like in Newton’s Park and Franklin’s Lab Supports Design and Manufacturing Teaching zSpace enhances student design and manufacturing skills • • • • Use existing tools Import 3D models Visualize and explore 3D Print Preview Examples of supported import formats Personalize the learning experience • Teacher tool allows customization and building of activities • Learning differentiation through activity questions and hints • Advanced options allow teachers to create nuanced experiments Question 1 How does a ball’s mass affect the speed of a falling ball? •Create an experiment with balls of different mass, roll them down ramps and measure the velocity of the ball at a common point. Question 2 Does the shape of the ramp or a straight drop make a difference in the momentum? •Create an experiment comparing the velocity of a single ball when rolling down different ramps or falling straight down. Question 3 How can you explain the different results? •Document in your lab book the differences in your measurements and hypothesize as to why they differ?
