3D model description

A puzzle made of Elements of the Periodic Table (PSE). As the Order Numbers are engraved, it is very easy to solve ;)

The intention was to have a PSE which could be combined in different ways. You can also form words with the symbol names.

3D printing settings

Well you will need perl to generate the new files. Here is how to do so. If you have no perl or don't want to run the scripts, just use "pse_generated.svg" for having a set of all elements.

1.
Download and store the following files in the same directory: "element_var.svg", "periodic.csv", "generate.pl", "concat.pl".
Create a subdirectory called "data"

2.
Change "element_var.svg" to your needs like the colors, shape, size or position of the names.
The variable names starting with $ will be replaced by the values "periodic.csv". So you can even change all names and values.

$o = order number
$u = mass
$n = name
$s = symbol
$v = (optional)

3.
After this setting, you run "perl generate.pl" to generate one SVG for each entry in your periodic.csv. The generated elements are stored in the subdirectory "data".

  1. (optional) Run "perl concat.pl" if you want a single SVG containing all generated elements. The name of the all-in-one-file is: pse_generated.svg

Hints:
It depends on your laser cutter settings if the puzzle parts snap to each other. If it does not, just scale the SVG bigger.
