A few weeks ago we made an announcement about our new initiative to collect 3D printables relevant to behavioral neuroscience research. We had a number of submissions via our Google Form for designs ranging from stereotaxic beds for neonatal mice, to adapters for stereotaxic arms to hold a variety of probes, to commutator arms to assist in electrophysiological recordings. These files have now been uploaded to our OpenBehavior GitHub repository with credit to those who designed and shared these useful tools. Additionally, several projects on our OB repository feature 3D printed parts; these are now a part of the 3D print repository through either direct links to the location of the files (thingiverse, the NIH 3D repo, OSF Framework, etc), or are forked on GitHub directly from the developer’s pages. We hope that this OpenBehavior 3D print repository will serve as a central hub to find the next 3D printable solution to streamline your own research.

Check out the OpenBehavior GitHub here!

If you have designed something for your research and want to share the design, please consider completing the form below. If you have shared the design on a repository like GitHub, we will fork the design to a new GitHub repository managed by the OpenBehavior project. If you don’t use GitHub, let us know and we will reach out and add the design to the repository. Credit will be given to all who contribute, and you may find other labs using your items in their research. This is a great way to share knowledge, make research easier to do, and also make social connections with people in other labs that you might have never met otherwise. Please consider contributing to this new repository using the link below. Thank you.
