Accurate CAD model of the 'Franklin Printing Press', also known as the 'English Common Press', now in the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC, USA. It is believed to be the press that Benjamin Franklin used while serving his apprenticeship in a London print shop. It is the type that was used to print the Declaration of Independence, United States Constitution, early paper money and other 'broadsides' and commercial printing. A common design, it was used in similar form from the late 1600's to the early 1800's.

The Model
The SolidWorks™ CAD model was reverse-engineered from available documentation and period photographs.   It is representative of my museum quality work in the field of Industrial Archeology (IA).

The high resolution model contains 2,034,941 polys. All parts and/or surfaces were color mapped within SolidWorks™, and migrated to the .obj format
The SolidWorks™ model is available in several common formats including SolidWorks, Parasolid and .obj. Please verify that they are compatible with your application.

The SolidWorks model was converted into the .obj format using SimLab Animator. Rendering is in KeyShot2 Pro from Luxion.

It is not possible to determine the exact number of vertices in SolidWorks.
