Paleo Bill of Materials

Welcome

This site contains various 3D design files needed to build various classroom models for the Paleo Language. It is an annex to Paleo.In.

Student Models

The minimum set to reinforce a student learning the alphabet. Includes colorized versions of all of the letters for practicing letter shapes and pronunciation. Includes one of either a Sower, the male form, or a Reaper, the female form, for practicing quick recall of the 3D letter pairs. Also includes a simple storage base. This is the essential project for practicing spelling, pronunciation, and word definitions.

If you're thinking about 3D printing any of these projects, start here.

Student Case

A case that can hold a set of Student Letters and support either an Ezekiel Sower or an Ezekiel Reaper.

Student Letters

Colored Alphabet models. Each letter printed in a color that indicates the vowel sound for the letter.

This set of letters is normally packed inside the Student Case.

Student Cards

These 2 cards are usually included inside the Student Case. They contain a very dense description of the alphabet as well as a series of games to demonstrate mastery of the alphabet.

Ezekiel Sower

This is 1 of the 2 models that can sit atop the Student Case.

Ezekiel Reaper

This is 1 of the 2 models that can sit atop the Student Case.

City Models

Shows the 3D objects behind each letter, establishing letter definitions. This is the basis for understanding the spelling of whole words. Advanced use includes letter gender and shows how the particular arrangement of letters informs many maps. The map of the 25 thrones as but one example. The map of the USA and the map of Disneyland are 2 others students may find particularly interesting.

This is called 'City' because major cities are often laid out this way.

City Case

This series produces a case to hold a set of Things. When the things are stored, the lid of this case is clear of other 3D parts in order to show off the 5x5 grid of letters. This letter arrangement is important in and of itself in various ways.

City Letters

This series produces 2 sets of City Letters, These are done in yellow, like polished gold, the basis for the written contract. These are stored inside the City Case.

City Things

This series produces a set of City Things. These are also done in yellow, like polished gold. Each thing is a model of the thing that sits behind the 2 dimensional letter shapes. These things define the meaning of each letter of the alphabet.

Ezekiel Models

Shows the system used to reconstruct the lost shapes as per stories in the Book of Ezekiel. Shows letter shapes and how they form letter pairs. Advanced use includes maps to the 12 Commandments, to the 12 Judges, to Joseph's 12 Kings and to the 12 Tribes. These Advanced lessons are essential to understanding the high level design of the Testimony.

Ezekiel Case

This series produces a case to hold a set of Ezekiel's Letters, a set of Ezekiel's Bones, as well as a provide a base to hold 1 Ezekiel Sower and 1 Ezekiel Reaper.

Ezekiel Letters

This series produces a set of Ezekiel's Letters, These are done in white, the color of sun-scorched bones. These are stored inside the Ezekiel Case.

Ezekiel Bones

This series produces a set of 3D bones. These bones are the 3 Dimensional models formed from the projection of folded pairs of the 2D letter forms. These models are stored inside the Ezekiel Case.

Ezekiel Sower

This series is 1 of 2 assemblies of Ezekiel's Bones. In this case the Bones assemble into a Sower. This model is placed atop the Ezekiel Case.

Ezekiel Reaper

This series is 1 of 2 assemblies of Ezekiels's Bones. In this case the bones assemble into a Reaper. This model is placed atop the Ezekiel Case.

Joseph's Silo and Well Models

Completes the 3rd side of the 3D shapes from Ezekiel's Sower and Reaper. Shows the 3D system of the alphabet to be complete. Shows the construction of a Silo and Well. Advanced use includes explaining various parables.

Joseph Case

This series produces a case that holds up the silo and well.

Joseph Beam

This series produces all the various beams that are used to construct the silo and well. This includes various 2D shapes. These parts are placed inside the Joseph Case.

Joseph Silo

This series includes all the parts needed to construct Joseph's Silo.

Joseph Well

This series includes all the parts needed to construct Joseph's Well.

River of Life Models

Completes the 3rd side of the 3D shapes from the City Models. Shows the life cycle of a plant. Shows the 3D system of the alphabet to be complete. Advanced use includes explaining various parables.

River Case

This series provides all the parts for the River Case.

River Letters

This series produces a set of 2D letters for storage inside the River Case.

River Top

This series produces the various 2D tops that are stored inside the River Case.

River Plant

This series produces the various 3D plant models that go with the River Case.

Pedestal Models

These parts are used to show the 3D projection used throughout all the entire system.

Pedestal Case

This series produces a case that holds up the cube that shows off the various 3D projections.

Pedestal Prop

This series produces the cube that shows off the various 3D projections.

Stats

To print all these models is a significant undertaking. Even at 2" scale, with .35 mm layer height for cases, this project involves many 100s of hours of 3D printer time.

Your 3D printer must be in good working order. The Live-Adjust-Z calibration should be perfect, with no distortion at the base of prints against the printer bed.

Here are some statistics for the entire project...

Part Numbers: 928

Part Count: 1780

Optional Part Numbers: 107
