Seminar WS 2014/15

Personal Fabrication for Science

Welcome to the seminar "Personal Fabrication for Science"!

When?: Tuesday 8:15 - 9:45
Where?: CZ3, Room 120
Who: PeterDittrich et al.


In this seminar we will study modern, easily accessible personal fabrication technologies like 3D printing and laser cutting with respect to their impact on scientific practice; in particular in the life sciences, biotechnology, and BioChemIT.

In the seminar you might learn:

  • How to use personal fabrication to automatize the scientific experimental process?
  • How to make your own lab equipment by personal fabrication?
  • How personal fabrication can lead to novel biological and chemical information technologies (BioChemIT)?

In the seminar you will

  • obtain an overview of personal fabrication technologies (Week 1 and Week 2)
  • give a talk on a particular personal fabrication technolgy based on recent scientific publications (and listen to talks by other students)
  • obtain some practical experience (e.g., a 3D printer will be available)
  • practice scientific writing by documenting your contribution (approx. 5 pages)

The number of participants is limited, so please register as soon as possible.

Please contact the organizers for further details.

Suggested Topics

  1. Bioprinting, print cell tissues, organs, and more?, see for intro: Hod Lipson book
  2. Fabricate lab equipment, micro ore mill fluidics, see: Lab on a chip journal
  3. Softrobotics, see for intro: http://softroboticstoolkit.com/
  4. Technology: smallest structure that can be printed, cf. Nanoscribe
  5. How to build lab equipment with laser cutters? (not that scientific, but usefull)
  6. Origami (laser cutter, ...)

Sprache / Language

  • If necessary, the seminar will be held in English. That is, by default the language will be English. However if all participants speak German the presentations should be in German as well.
  • Ausarbeitungen können in jedem Fall auf Deutsch verfasst werden.
  • Falls alle Teilnehmenden Deutsch ausreichend beherrschen, werden wir auch das Seminar auf Deutsch abhalten.
  • In jedem Fall wird die Bewertung nicht vom Beherrschen einer jeweiligen Fremdsprache abhängig gemacht.
