Developing next-gen microfluidic chips with desktop 3D printing
Published on December 8, 2020
Microfluidics is the science that studies the behavior of fluids through micro-channels. Microfluidic chips are miniaturized devices containing chambers and tunnels through which fluids flow or are confined.
In this webinar, the engineers of nTop and Formlabs present a workflow to generate microfluidic chips using nTop and 3D printed using Formlabs.
This digital design and manufacturing workflow allows you to quickly iterate and validate microfluidic chip designs. Within nTop, you can manipulate channel geometry and manage your most commonly used components. SLA 3D printing with Formlabs opens up design complexity not possible with traditional methods.
Watch this webinar recording and learn how to:
- Generate microfluidic chip designs using nTop
- Export the mesh to a Form3 3D printer
- Understand the Formlabs 3D printing capabilities for microfluidic chips
