#3DxMathematics – Plane Shape Peg Board by AtomKemp #3DThursday #3DPrinting
Here’s a handy tool to help introduce new makers to the basic shapes at the heart of both 2D and 3D modeling from Adam Kemp: Thingiverse Thing 108725.
This board is designed to assist students in exploring plane shape concepts and is part of the Makerspace Education chapter in my new book “The Makerspace Workbench” from Maker Media!. Simply cut out the board using a laser engraver, attach a length of yarn and add short 1/8″ wooden pegs.

The Makerspace Workbench by Adam Kemp: Create a dynamic space for designing and building DIY electronic hardware, programming, and manufacturing projects. With this illustrated guide, you’ll learn the benefits of having a Makerspace—a shared space with a set of shared tools—that attracts fellow makers and gives you more resources to work with. You’ll find clear explanations of the tools, software, materials, and layout you need to get started—everything from basic electronics to rapid prototyping technology and inexpensive 3D printers.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
