This a very nice paper from Nature about a growing trend in academic and industrial labs:
"Science has long embraced a DIY ethos. But thanks to the ready availability of
open-source software, electronics, 3D printers and online forums, DIY is
having a moment. “The mechanical manufacturing side is far more
accessible than before,” says Bashor. Tutorials and online resources
abound for 3D printing2, for instance, including several classes on the
educational website Coursera.But
DIY is, well, DIY. Even with all those resources greasing the wheels,
it’s still up to the scientist to do the work. “You need to be willing
to dig in and try to learn it yourself,” says Eric Greenwald, an imaging
specialist at the University of California, San Diego, who has made
some of the hardware in his lab himself. And, like the rest of science,
DIY projects are experiments."
