3D Print of the Week

3d print of the week: adapter for reward system tubes

This week’s featured print is part of an adapter for a reward system used for cognitive research involving tree shrews. The part allows the researchers to adjust the depth of the reward tubes that feed the tree shrews they are studying.  3D printing allows researchers to design custom parts such as this for their laboratory work which would otherwise be difficult to create or obtain.

More information about the research being done by Travis Meyer.
