Community microscope file, ready to be cut with a laser cut machine or by hand. The file has three stages: sample area, camera stage and a raspberry pi stage at the bottom.


1. Download the .dxf file.

2. Depending on your machine you'll need to dimension the file to 30x13 cm.

3. Cut it and assemble

Ready to cut file → RPI microscope DXF file

Awesome!!! You can also find some cut files (but more importantly some artwork for printing instructions on them!) here:
