    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 samples held in a glass scintillation vial (VWR Scintillation Vial, Cat No. 66022-065). 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).
