[3D print] Mantis microscope base

Some time ago I bought a Mantis microscope for cheap at an auction.

The reason why it was cheap was that the base was not included. Therefore I designed a new base and 3D printed it. The base is printed from PETG and has a M10x50 bold + nut to reinforce it.

The bottom of the microscope:

Update to WordPress

The last few years I did not post a lot. This while I did made a lot of projects. The biggest reason for this is that I had to do all the updates in HTML code. This took a lot of time and to me is very boring. This caused me to not feel like updating the site. Therefore I now changed everything over to WordPress which makes it easier to update.

The comments unfortunately could not be imported from the old site.
