Every now and then an order reminds me that I have practical and pretty models for sale on Shapeways.. if you've ever wanted a desk model of DNA, or a Phage, or a model Centrifuge Rotor powered by a Dremel, I guess I'm your guy:
I still have my trusty Dremelfuges I used (recklessly) for #diybio #biohacking for years.. I even still have some of the stupid prototypes. :)
@gendor Family complications, moving house, and fulltime work knocked me off the DIYbio wagon for years but I'm getting back on lately. I won't have time to support a return to amateur genetic engineering which was always my key interest, because of the overweening regulatory burden. But, some amateur microbiology is definitely happening. And I'll be looking into some in-vitro molecular biology experiments too, in time.
@cathal I'm wondering when there'll be a version Shapeways for people who upload bioprintable designs such as body parts - at least scaffolding for body parts. Right now, I seem to be printing more banal things, for example, a rack mount bracket for audio equipment, because the manufacturer doesn't seem to be talking to their users. Maybe I can corner the market on boring bits for biohackers.
