Category Topics


Announcements and news related to the Openflexure project. Only forum “staff” and and forum users with “trust level 2” or higher can create new posts here.


For any discussions related to the OpenFlexure Project, from feedback to photos of your microscope.


This category is intended as a place to post what you are doing with the OpenFlexure Microscope. There are so many people doing new and exciting things with it, so this is a place to discuss them. We are also hoping to write up a series of case studies on people using the microscope slightly more formally for the website - we hope this category will be a great place to spot where our next articles should come from.

Request Help

This category if for when you need help with your microscope, Sangaboard, or other OpenFlexure project. You can also open an issue on GitLab. The forum is probably the best place to start if you are unsure what the problem is and just want to ask a question.


If you have improved or built on the OpenFlexure project and want to share your changes you can start a discussion here.

Discussion about this site, its organization, how it works, and how we can improve it.
