Man, this is a cliche thing to print, but it is really useful. Thats a picture of it on my Amscope 10-30x scope. Now that I have the dimensions down, I am going to re-print it with a rest for my phone. I would provide the model, but it was actually 5% “too small” although it could be that the printer just printed it a little small-I need to check the calibration and see how close it is.
You can see here how I trimmed the length a bit too, since I didn’t know how long it should be. I just used some flush cutters to start the removal, and then the layers peeled off from the Z axis. Its kind of an adjustable length print, since the walls are just two layers thick.
Anyway, the results are great! This was taken at 10x, and you can probably already see why it is easier to solder through a ‘scope than with just your eyes. And sometimes you need to get tiny, so that is what 30x mode is for.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
