3D Illustrated Periodic Table Model Assembly

Replacement for the
Printed Assembly Notes of the model kit

scoring for block defining bends
1. Take all paper kit parts from the sleeve.

taking apart the table and connectors
2. Separate carefully for smoother edges.

putting period ends back together
6a. Punch out 3 chads by Group 1

defining the blocks with bends at the scoring
6c. Punch out 2 chads between 2 & 3

the central periodic table gap is closed
6e. Punch out chads along the bottom

before the f–block is inserted
7. Roll up the Hydrogen strip for safety

Needed: 5 large paperclips, scissors, a short pencil, glossy finish transparent Scotch tape (matte finish tape shows badly).

Light coming from behind over your shoulder will help light the model at the end of the assembly, when working black on black with clear tape.


1. Remove contents of sleeve.

2. Separate all die-cut sections

3. Save the 3D periodic table sketches, the de Chancourtois material, and the photos (for reference) of various views of the model.

4. Put aside all except the 2 with element data/photo boxes.

5. Put the smaller section aside and the larger section - the s-, d-, and p-blocks - element photo side up.

6. Punch out, with a paperclip, the small center 'crescent shaped' chads in the vertical slots:

      a. by the fold crease at the beginning of the periods at Group 1.

      b. near Beryllium on the left end of the Hydrogen strip.

      c. at the flap crease next to Boron

      d. low on the interface between the Groups 2 & 3

      e. Also remove chads from horizontal slots in the bottom white strip where there are (sometimes multiple) slots under groups 1, 2, 3, 4, 11, and 12.

7. Roll the extended Hydrogen strip up to about a 3" to 4" diameter and paperclip it together - front and back - above Fluorine.

8. Turn the whole section over, black side up, bottom toward you.

NEXT - Making the D-Block
