First 3d print

Our first 3D print is completed!

As experts in 3D scanning, taking visualization to the next level with physical prints is something we’ve been looking forward to for a long time. This first print is a DNA helix – not a CT Scan data set just yet. 3D printing will be offered as an accessible facility for students and the public, as well as commercial companies. This initative will be in collaboration with the Idea2Product Lab and the Stellenbosch University’s Launchlab, more information will follow shortly.

This is the first print:

This is the base pairs of the DNA (parts) also finished and finally the base pairs linked into the structure:
