[Dataset: Punch-B]

Description: 3D dataset model of a punch for a majiscule sans serif B. The resulting 3D printed model will replicate the historical artifact used to design and cast type during the hand press period. These models are for teaching purposes only and cannot be used to cast type using molten type metal, nor can they be used for printing. This dataset is an individual file and is part of a complete set of teaching tools.

[Dataset: Complete teaching tool set]

Description: 3D dataset model of a moveable hand mould, matrix, punch, and type piece for a majiscule sans serif B. This dataset includes all the files necessary to print an entire set of teaching tools set in one file: the two-part handmould, punch, matrix, and two pieces of type (one with the jet attached as well as a detachable jet piece and an individual type piece). The resulting 3D printed model will replicate the historical artifact used to design/cast type during the hand press period. These models are for teaching purposes only and cannot be used to cast type using molten type metal, nor can they be used for printing.

[Dataset: Removable-Jet]

Description: 3D dataset model of a removable jet for a majiscule sans serif B. The resulting 3D printed model will replicate the historical artifact used to design and cast type during the hand press period. This dataset will print a single detachable jet piece. To use this model for instruction, you must also print a model of the type without jet; the removable jet inserts into the type piece to illustrate the process of jet removal. These models are for teaching purposes only and cannot be used to cast type using molten type metal, nor can they be used for printing. This dataset is an individual file and is part of a complete set of teaching tools.

[Dataset: Matrix-B]

Description: 3D dataset model of a matrix for a majiscule sans serif B. The resulting 3D printed model will replicate the historical artifact used to design/cast type during the hand press period. These models are for teaching purposes only and cannot be used to cast type using molten type metal, nor can they be used for printing. This dataset is an individual file and is part of a complete set of teaching tools.

[Dataset: Moveable Type Hand Mould Side B]

Description: 3D dataset model of one side of a moveable hand mould. The resulting 3D printed model will replicate the historical artifact used to cast type during the hand press period. This 3D dataset is in two parts. Each part is a separate piece of the two-sided mould. You will need to print both files to have a complete model for a hand mould. For printing ease, the spring (used by typecasters to hold the matrix into place on the mould) has been excised. These models are for teaching purposes only and cannot be used to cast type using molten type metal, nor can they be used for printing. This dataset is an individual file and is part of a complete set of teaching tools.

[Dataset: Piece of movable type B with jet attached]

Description: 3D dataset model of a piece of moveable type with jet attached for a majiscule sans serif B. The resulting 3D printed model will replicate the historical artifact from the hand press period. These models are for teaching purposes only and cannot be used to cast type using molten type metal, nor can they be used for printing. This dataset is an individual file and is part of a complete set of teaching tools.

[Dataset: Piece of movable type B with jet detached]

Description: 3D dataset model of a piece of moveable type with jet detached for a majiscule sans serif B. The resulting 3D printed model will replicate the historical artifact from the hand press period. This dataset will print a piece of type for a majuscule modern sans-serif B without the jet attached. To use this model for instruction, you must also print the removable jet, which will insert into the piece of type to illustrate the process of jet removal. These models are for teaching purposes only and cannot be used to cast type using molten type metal, nor can they be used for printing. This dataset is an individual file and is part of a complete set of teaching tools.

[Dataset: Woodcut Facsimile]

Description: 3D dataset model of a facsimile of a 16th century woodcut illustrating a typecaster at work. The model is 4 inches by 4 inches square, and should print type high: 0.918 inches. To print on a standard FDM printer, a smaller mm. nozzle is necessary. A resin print of this dataset was set in a locked form of a tabletop roller press, inked, and printed successfully.
