24/40 laboratory stoppers 3D printed in nylon.
Nylon is a tough, chemical resistant material that is well suited for 3D printing. Nylon readily absorbs water from the air, so it must be handled carefully . We use a special drying chamber to feed the nylon to the 3D printer without exposing it to the air.

Nylon is one of the strongest plastics and it easily withstands the 3000+ g forces in our centrifuge.
The bottom feature fits into the centrifuge bucket like a lock and key.
Good Design Makes a Product Useful.
A product is bought to be used. It has to satisfy certain criteria, not only functional but also psychological and aesthetic. Good design emphasizes the usefulness of a product while disregarding anything that could possibly detract from it.

This piece was designed in CorelCAD, a version of AutoCAD, exported to STL format in Solidowrks, and prepared for 3D printing in Netfabb. This 3D filament color is called "coffee".
3D printed objects can be both attractive and functional.
The aesthetic quality of a product is integral to its usefulness because products are used every day and have an effect on people and their well-being. Only well-executed objects can also be aesthetically pleasing.
