The 10 year old has a group project (we’ve already begun to teach him to despise group projects) at school researching technology in ancient China. Fortuitously we recently visited the Terracotta Army traveling exhibit at the Virgina Museum of Fine Arts, so the topic was fresh in our minds.
As luck would have it, some items from the Terracotta Army have been scanned by Scan the World, including one of the kneeling warriors:

A Xi’an, or Terra-cotta, Warrior for the 10 year old’s school project on ancient China. Model by Scan the World. Printed in Tianse Red Copper PLA. While there are terra-cotta colored filaments out there, they seem either incredibly hard to get ahold of, or really expensive. #3dprinting #terracottawarriors #xianwarriors #scantheworld #myminifactory
We’ll need to see what else we can find as hands on props for their group project.
This was also a great excuse to break out the Red Copper PLA; terracotta colored PLA seems to exist, but is either very hard to find in stock, or is shockingly expensive.
