Experimented making PDMS replicas from 3d printed moulds.
Updated R&D document.

July 9, 2014 16.00 Time - Hours Done by Tyler

Adapted microfluidic device geometry to be used with the b9creator. This involved redesigning the channels to avoid curves and to ensure a minimum feature size of 200 microns. After the designs were made, I rendered them into 3D models, and exported them as .stl files. To check the fidelity of the files, I then double-checked that they open correctly in SketchUp.

Work - R&D mechanics: 4.00 Time - Hours due July 8, 2014

3D print a prototype of the microfluidic device found in the file with the name: leMassif_b9compatible_exponential_x1_wBase1mm.stl` located in the `lab-on-a-chip` folder. The 4h is just a guess, I don`t know how long this print will take.
