Pretty specialized: This holds the water to help make thick sections of epoxy-embedded tissue samples, using a 10mm thick triangular glass knife.
It's easy to buy 6mm and 8mm versions, but 10mm ones have become like hen's teeth.
If you're not an electron microscopist: move along, nothing to see here.
Print in ABS, 12 or more at a time. This is a single-wall print, and you have to have your reversal settings dialed in or you'll have strings and nipples all over the place.
Dip each boat in acetone to seal it and make it waterproof. Attach to the glass knife with nail polish as usual.
I also uploaded a rotated version, laying on its back. This might print better for some people.
