Over the past few years, 3D printing technology has been actively used both in scientific research and in the educational process. On the Internet everyone can find projects of colorimeters , laboratory shakers , peristaltic pumps , or even autosamplers for gas chromatographs .
Fig. 1. Several projects of open-source laboratory equipment [1‑4] made using 3D printing technology.
Most open-source projects are distributed under a license allowing anyone to modify the source files. As a result, previously published designs can be modified rather than developing a new device from scratch.
This section of the site contains both projects developed by us from scratch and modifications of some devices previously published on the Internet.
