The range of things that the RSL 3D printing service can create may be larger than you think.
We’ve printed pieces that have combined with traditional movable type for the Bodleian Bibliographical Press. The square block of type can now be freely rotated 360 degrees. It’s great to see old and new technology working together. The Bodleian Presses are still in use and you can see more informtation about them on our website.
Our colleagues in the TSS lab needed new combs to help run their PCR tests. Their old combs did not allow for a reference ladder and were getting brittle and damaged. We successfully printed new combs for them significantly cheaper than if they went through a commercial provider. More details on their blog.
