An intriguing looking 3D printed DNA lamp. It features a glow in the dark DNA helix slowly rotating inside a transparent acrylic tube. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYL4i2ufPZw)

This could be modified to be part of a gaming super computer water cooling kit. :)


Sounds good on paper but rotating object inside sealed container would be challenging :P I'm awaiting the remix :D

ahah I see the similarities xD

does this print work for a MakerBot 5 gen? plus, do you buy the lamp (including the glassy part) part separately or is it 3d printed?

Check the instructables link for all the information how to build it.
All parts are designed to be printed in a common 200x200x200mm printer. All the black parts and the DNA strand are 3d printed.

Thanks! this is an awesome print!

No problem! Thanks
