Thermal Post-Processing of 3D Printed Polypropylene Parts for Vacuum Systems

Access to vacuum systems is limited because of economic costs. A rapidly growing approach to reduce the costs of scientific equipment is to combine open-source hardware methods with digital

Additive manufacturing technology of polymeric materials for customized products: recent developments and future prospective

The worldwide demand for additive manufacturing (AM) is increasing due to its ability to produce more challenging customized objects based on the process parameters for engineering applications. The

Cavitation-based soft abrasive flow processing method

To improve the processing efficiency and surface quality of soft abrasive flow (SAF) processing, we proposed a cavitation-based soft abrasive flow (CSAF) processing method and designed a CSAF



Open source 3-D printed nutating mixer

As the open source development of additive manufacturing has led to low-cost desktop three-dimensional (3-D) printing, a number of scientists throughout the world have begun to share digital designs

3D Printing in the Laboratory

3D printing has been slow in the biosciences to date, but the potential is vast; the market predicts that within several years, 3D printers could be commonplace within the home; with so many practical uses for 3D printing, the technology will also play an increasingly important role in the laboratory.

Open-Source Wax RepRap 3-D Printer for Rapid Prototyping Paper-Based Microfluidics

The development of a RepRap upgrade capable of converting a Prusa Mendel RepRap into a wax 3-D printer for paper-based microfluidic applications is reported on, which accelerates the potential of the nascent field of electrochemical detection combined with paper- based micro fluidics by dropping the marginal cost of prototyping to nearly zero while accelerating the turnover between paper-Based microfluidity designs.

3D‐printed individual labware in biosciences by rapid prototyping: In vitro biocompatibility and applications for eukaryotic cell cultures

Three‐dimensional (3D) printing techniques are continuously evolving, thus their application fields are also growing very fast. The applications discussed here highlight the use of rapid prototyping

A one-piece 3D printed flexure translation stage for open-source microscopy.

This work exploits the compliance of the plastic to produce a monolithic 3D printed flexure translation stage, capable of sub-micron-scale motion over a range of 8 × 8 × 4 mm, and enables a miniature microscope with excellent mechanical stability.

Fume emissions from a low-cost 3-D printer with various filaments

Findings and exposure scenario estimation suggest that although the VOC concentrations were much lower than occupational exposure limits, particles with size less than micron might be a concern for users of low-cost 3-D printers due to high respirablity, especially if used in settings without proper guidance and engineering control.

A 3D Printed Toolbox for Opto-Mechanical Components

The results indicate that the components fabricated are highly customizable, low-cost, require a short time to be fabricated and surprisingly, offer a performance that compares favorably with respect to low-end commercial alternatives.
