This is a sign for use on an institutional Smartboard to notify faculty and students that the white ceramic-on-steel board is not to be used with whiteboard markers.


Printed using 2 shells and 5% infill, PLA @ 170/60, travel rate 35mm on a MakerBot Replicator 1.

Printed at 0.5 scale to fit three 5/16" rare earth magnets (Harbor Freight #67488) for a small board and full size for a larger board. Full size uses two each of the same magnet per hole on the back. Fixed magnets in place using superglue then backed the whole surface with self-adhesive craft felt to prevent scratches to the board's surface.

@DanFruzzetti, It is amazing how many people just assume if its white and flat, it must be a whiteboard. At the University-level this seems almost across the board, while my 8-year-old daughter knows better from the use of SmartBoards in her school. Perhaps in a few more years, people will be more experienced with the technology. Since I first printed this one out for one of my teachers, we have printed a number of other items with integrated magnets and felt backing to protect the boards. Now, we when want to talk about geometric shapes or world history, we can just move the items around the board and illustrate groupings (animal types, similarities in architecture, etc). Gives us a whole new area to explore the core curriculum content in the classrooms.

Oh, I'm so glad I'm not the only one with this problem. People used to constantly write on my Activboard with marker and I'd come back into the room after a weekend wondering why the sunday school church crowd was even allowed into my classroom.

Done, Thanks Bitflusher. Didn't really think of that. :)

Perhaps you should set the printed version as the primary image for this thing. that should make it stand out of the crowd of designed but never printed objects
