Using 3D printing to make labequipment for DIY biology

What do you get when you combine 3D printing and a DIY bio enthusiaist?

Behold the “Dremelfuge”

Video demonstration

It is able to stably spin standard microcentrifuge tubes at ca 5000-20000 g. And the dremel can go up to 50000 g, but he broke his tubes.

This creation was made by Cathal Garvey, it might look simple but the cost of buying lab equipment for “ordinary people” certainly justifies it.
