Say hello to the PCR Halfbox: the solution to every molecular biologist's woe: where to store your ever-growing "collection" of RNA/DNA, PCR amplicons, and related stuff.
-accommodates up to 98 standard low to high-profile flat-capped or dome-capped 0.1-0.2ml tubes
-internal rack is removable as a standalone PCR tube holder.
-can double as a PCR ice box using ice flakes
-stackable in pairs with standard-sized 13.3x13.3mm cryoboxes
Designed with Blender 3D for the PrintedLabs Project of Plusforge 3D.
Resize the parts accordingly in your 3D slicing software:
Body: 13.3 x 6.65 x 2.8cm
Lid: 13.527 x 6.877 x 1 cm
Rack: 6.348 x 13.044 x 1.507 cm
Print the tube holder with -0.4 to -0.6mm vertical shell offset. As for the body and lid, print in vase mode with 1mm bottom layer thickness and 0.8mm thick walls (i.e. 2 perimeters for 0.4mm nozzles). The box looks best when printed with transparent filament.
You may need to trim the holes of the rack for your tubes to print, depending on the vertical shell offset you set.
