3d Printed Lab Ware


I have recently gained access to a 3d printer. The first thing that came to mind was, "Could I use this for chemistry." The only problem is that I can only thing of basic applications, such as a bumper for a graduated cylinder.

test tube rack, graduated cylinder bumper as you said, round bottom flask holder, maybe a stand clamp (if used for light thing and not in hot conditions), custom holders for delicate glassware, custom cases for diy instruments (melting temperature apparatus, magnetic stirrer, mechanical stirrer etc), maybe even a lab jack (this would be fun). there are many things you could do, and if you have access to multiple kinds of filament you could make custom O-rings, stoppers etc

If you have access to polypropelene filiament you could make storage bottles and stoppers.

I've considered making Keck clamps. Some of those rings that people use for standing up RBFs would be nice.



This is my YouTube channel: Extreme Red Cabbage. I don't have much posted, but I try to do nice writeups once in a while.

Hmm that would be quite expensive

There are some really interesting ideas here. I've added a description to each link

Another approach would be to apply chemistry to 3D printing. You could potentially make your own filament with different properties - color changing, glow in the dark, different stiffness, etc.

I have been thinking of doing just that. It involves SLS and new C-C bond formation.

They are really cheap now.

A Chinese kit will be between 130 and 200 dollars, but a really good beginner printer will be about 350 (get a CETUS).

I'd love to hear more about this. Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) is the most common 3D printing method, especially at the low end. But it isn't very energy efficient and it is S-L-O-W.
