These pictures are of our newest worker in our lab: “Kylie”. Kylie is a 3D printer! Kylie comes with stunning green glasses as this season’s key accessory.
(Actually they’re safety goggles that filter out UV wavelengths – yes kids, it’s true – a real life use for something you studied in high-school physics!)
For the scientists out there, we have opted for a resin printer rather than a filament printer for a couple of reasons:
- Producing water-tight containers is easier with resin
- You can get resins that produces a cured product with a high enough melt point that it won’t distort around 100C
- It’s got a laser, which is awesome
We are planning to make custom equipment for electrophoresis, custom tube racks and good looking pipette stands.
