Model Blocks for the Base 6 Number System
The base-6 blocks are designed upon a request. Indeed, it is important for students and their teachers to be aware of the art of number representations. A number, say 37, could be represented using any base: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, ... , although we typically use only base 10, 2, 8, 16, or, occasionally, 5, for pedagogical purposes. Anyone learning computer programming would benefit from a good understanding of base 2, 8, and 16, at least.
Among the files are (Base = 6, unit = 10mm ^ 3):
Thousand (6^3) + A version that saves filament when printing.
Please note that in a number (numeral) system other than base-ten, the words, ten, hundred, thousand, are now confusing, although some people do use them. A specific reference such as 6^2 is much clearer.
Multiples of Unit, Ten, Hundred can be used for batch printing.
To save filament, please try to scale the blocks down. By default, the unit cube is 10 mm ^3. It should be okay at a scale factor of 0.8. When the cubes get smaller, however, they are hard to handle and pose more risks to young children. Please do educate children not to put things in their mouth.
