The Periodic Table of Elements

About the Periodic Table of Elements:

The periodic table of elements is perhaps a chemist's most important reference tool. It is a reference showing the atomic number, symbol, name, atomic weight, and more of each known element. It is used by both professional chemists and students learning chemistry.

About the model:

The model includes all of the known elements of the periodic table. Not only did I want it to be a cool building set, but also educational and useful. Each element tile is easily detachable because of a single stud connection. This makes it possible to remove all of the element tiles and try to reassemble the table from memory. This is great for memorizing the table. The model uses black plates on the bottom to hold the two sections of the table together. It can be used just like a regular periodic table of elements minus the numbers to indicate periods and groups. Two keys are included to indicate the meaning of the colors. The model was built using Studio 2.0 software and was rendered using the same software. Bricklink's Part Designer was used to apply the text to the plates.
