A Field Guide to 3D Printing

A delightfully useful paper centered on 3D printing of microscopes has been written by Mario Del Rosario, Hannah Heil, Afonso Mendes, Vittorio Saggiomo and Ricardo Henriques.

The paper covers a bevy of topics and tips from the basics behind infill patterns to the specifics concerning biocompatibility. It’s a great resource for anyone involved with 3D printing, even if you aren’t physically doing the printing yourself. The manuscript has 164 references, many of which point to review articles filled with even more papers to get you information on what you need to know.
