Description

The general purpose of these designs are described in “3D Printed UV-vis Cuvette Adapter for Low Cost and Versatile Spectroscopic Experiments”, which is published in the open access journal ACS Omega. Link to publication:
http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acsomega.7b01310

This particular part is meant to allow reproducible analysis of films on a microscope slide with a film in the shape of a triangle. This adapter can be used in most standard UV-Vis spectrometers. We recommend printing this design with a black filament to reduce the amount of light scattering.

Materials and methods

Printer brand:
LulzBot

Printer:
Mini

Rafts:
Doesn't Matter

Supports:
Yes

Resolution:
standard

Infill:
20%

We recommend using supports that "touch build plate only" rather than having supports everywhere. For this print we used black polylactic acid (PLA) filament made and sold by MatterHackers.

3D printed objects were designed with SketchUp Make 2017 available free from Google (http://www.sketchup.com/). Designs were sliced using Cura for Lulzbot (https://www.lulzbot.com/cura), a free software that is based off of the more universal Cura software from Ultimaker (https://ultimaker.com/en/products/cura-software).
