Models of simple crystalline structure unit cells. All proportions are scientifically correct and atomic radii are shared among all models. Please feel free to use for educational purposes.
Radii have been enlarged by 5% to account for minimal overlap in structure.

Overview and Background
Simple lattice structures
Lesson Plan and Activity
Examining the simple lattice structures
Structures represent BCC, BC, FCC, & HCP crystalline structures. These aim to help students visualize what these structures really look like in 3D!
Just a 3D printer
All you will need is a capable 3D printer to create these files!
