Weekend of Wonder: 3D printed stand for Plugable's USB microscope
Our friends at Plugable, maker of the super-cool 250X USB microscope I reviewed in July, are sponsors of our upcoming Weekend of Wonder. (Attendees will be very happy that they are.)
I just found out that Plugable's design intern made a 3d printed stand option for the USB microscope. He wrote a post about the project with links to the files on Thingiverse. Bob Boerner of of Plugable told me, "The short version is we wanted an option with something more stable than the goose-neck in the box that looks like the microscope stands of old. Since I saw that you were having fun with your Printrbot I thought you might want to give this a shot."
I'm looking forward to making it!

If there’s one thing that stayed consistent through the last decade or so of tech industry turmoil, it’s the love affair between techies and Linux.

Accidents happen. And when they do, you’re going to want a dash cam for a second pair of eyes. At the minimum, a decent dash cam can save you vast sums of time and money in case of an accident. But a really good dash cam can do a whole lot more. Here are six […]
