3D Printed Force Sensor for the Classroom

3D printers are becoming more prevalent in schools these days, but what kinds of education relevant things can they be used for? Why not an introductory lesson in physics?!! In this instructable I’m going to show you how to build a functioning 3D printed load cell model capable of measuring force in tension & compression up to 11 lbs (in .012 lb increments), and I’ve provided some lessons explaining the science behind it.”
