Another semester under our belts! We had an average of three printing requests per week and put several hundred hours of printing time into our machines. All in all it was a great semester for the service.
We’re still around in the summer so if you have any ideas, please send them our way!
Chompers, or, Australopithecine teeth
Replica of Chinese printing block
An attempt at some cuneiform tablets. This took a few attempts to get right. (This is not the final batch.)
Keep your submissions coming, we’re happy to print things for you.
Things like a tiny brain.
Various gadgets for use in the lab. (combs for gel electrophoresis, some sample staining doo-dads)
It’s been a busy semester! Here’s a Neanderthal tibia for you. Printed in halves, attached with super glue, blue tape for stability.
Given that there are still a few things in the queue, it’s probably safe to say that we’re done processing submissions for the year. Feel free to send them in, just know that they’ll be dealt with when we start up again in January.
Here are a few recent prints.
And here’s a recycled holiday greeting, since I didn’t get a chance to print a new one this year:
Thanks a lot to all our users — your imagination and creativity knows no bounds.
…and that means the 3D printing service will go on a brief hiatus. Realistically, the last day we’ll be accepting submissions will probably be around the 13th. I say ‘probably’ since if someone submitted something tiny, we could probably fire that off before we stop for the year. As always, submissions will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
There will definitely not be any printing past the 19th of December.
