Title: Sections in technical drawings explained with 3D printed objects with inserted magnets. Watch on youtube: https://youtu.be/OhgXOF3r_O4
I am teaching basics of mechanical engineering and for some of my students, it is hard to understand sections in technical drawings. So I decided to design, 3D print some objects from their workbook. Those objects will be in 2 or 3 pieces but with inserted magnets, so students can see them in one piece and separate them, simulating section view.
I used different magnets, but in most cases d6x1mm (sometimes doubled).
2:02 Full section (on symmetrical plane)

10:02 Full section (not on symmetrical plane)
13:23 Broken-out sections
15:27 Offset sections
