Description

There are countless Microscope-Stands you can buy, more or less usable. But for all 3D-Printer owners it's a breeze to print one. The additional screws, nuts, tubes etc. are mostly available in your Hardware-Store. The Macro Images come from a Test Cube, Layer height = 0.25mm, Filament = PLA.
