I would like to know the status of the printable AFM.
Has anyone from one of our groups made one?
I searched Thingiverse for "AFM" with no results.
I will try to enter the .stl files into Thingiverse.

I sent several requests to the authors of that paper to allow me to
include this on Thingiverse. For one, to attract attention to the fact
that we can push the envelope towards a smaller scale (Plenty of room
there... someone once said!), the second reason is to help further
democratize the toolchain for nano-scale manipulation. Many of these
things can be done with piezzo buzzers and some effort, best practices
should be shared to be able to do this with simple means.

The e-mail I got back from prof. Gaub's colleague:
========
Nice to know that you are interested in our Plastic-AFM design. You
are welcome to include it in your database if you think that it might
be useful for your needs but before some information/premonition.  I
assume that you are aware that the instruction is meant for people
that already have some background in the field of scanning probe
microscopy. Due to limited manpower we cannot give you support on
general AFM issues like handling, calibrating routines, etc. and
furthermore we will not be able to answer specific questions to  your
community members and ask you not to use the gaub@... email address as
reference.

The listed components are only for a lateral movable AFM-head meant
for single-molecule force spectroscopy and no controller-electronics
and software comes along since we use modified commercial products
from the high-end sector for this purpose and assume that users know
how to implement a low-cost alternative (e.g. based on I/O cards and
Labview) that suits their needs. To do AFM imaging one has to combine
it with a x-y-Piezo scanner and the cost per AFM head stays still in
the regime of some thousand Euros.

So if you are still interested feel free to use the design, print/
order the parts and have fun getting a start in the Nano-World.


Regards,
Stefan Stahl

I haven't taken the time do put the data on Thingiverse yet, so anyone
feel free to do it.
