No, certainly not something you would use w/ piranha solution!
Never tried ceramic, but my initial impression is that ceramic clay printing might not be able to achieve resolution for this holder.
If you want, maybe you could take the design to RedEye...never used them before, but they can FDM with a variety of materials: http://www.redeyeondemand.com/...
Very cool. Definately not for use with piranha solution :P
Come to think of it, how well can ABS or PLA stand up to repeated ultrasonic baths in ethanol and isopropanol? I'm tempted to try this but I am concerned that the plastic will partially dissolve and mar the coverslips. Most of the racks I've ever seen were stainless steel or ceramic.
racks can hold 12 at a time, and I can usually fit two racks in a 500 mL beaker, 200 mL of solution just about covers the top of the coverslips.
Does anyone with a clay-printing setup want to try making this in ceramic?
