IMG_3586_tRecently I bought stereo microscope to scale things a bit. Though this microscope has option to attach camera, decent cameras cost as much as microscope itself or even more. So, I designed adapter for Iphone. This adapter attaches directly to en eye piece, so any microscope can be used. This adapter can be made at home on your 3D printer.

    I lead a microscopy society, the State Microscopical Society of Illinois, that meets at the McCrone Research Institute in Chicago, IL. I feel that this project of making a iPhone microscope adapter would be a great project for our society. Our library in Libertyville, IL has a 3-D printer and I’d like to see if we could make a iPhone adapter. Would you indicate how we could obtain the file for printing? The 3-D printer that’s available at the Cook Memorial Library in Libertyville is Lulzbot. Thanks for your help. Art Struss
