3D printed piece for a microscope

Robert Lemor (Local Advisory Board Member) visited us some days ago to print a model with the MakerBot Replicator. You’ll find here below some images of his application and quite interesting results.

“The piece serves for connecting a webcam (Hercules Deluxe Optical Glass) to an antique microscope (Leitz Wetzlar ca 1880). The last picture is an image taken from the camera on the microscope. It shows a unicellular protozea (Paramecium aurelia).”
