The 3D Printed Springscale gives the learner a chance to explore the mechanism for measuring weight, torque, and force. The 3D Printable creates the opportunity for the student to have a one to one with the tool. Learners can take the scale with them and measure various weights, torques, and forces outside the classroom.
