Modified LEGO Bricks for Microfluidics & Biomedical Engineering Research | #3DThursday

We’ve seen 3D-printing for microfluidics before, but this is taking it to an entirely new level, creating 3D-printed master molds for LEGOs specifically designed for microfluidic research. Awesome!

3D printed master molds have been used to create microfluidic LEGO bricks that facilitate the study of liquid flow for medical research. The LEGO brick method is being explored by the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of California, Irvine, with findings published in the Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering, January 2017.
