DEX is a small materials testing machine that should be capable of running tensile and compressive tests at up to 600N of force. The machine can be manufactured by anyone with access to a laser cutter with at least a 24x12" bed, and nearly any FDM 3D Printer. A bill of materials of purchased parts required to complete the machine is below.

## Usage
DEX runs a [squidworks](https://gitlab.cba.mit.edu/squidworks/squidworks) controller, which is in development but is pulling data from samples successfully.
DEX runs a [squidworks](https://gitlab.cba.mit.edu/squidworks/squidworks) controller. To run, use the 'dex' branches of [cuttlefish](https://gitlab.cba.mit.edu/squidworks/cuttlefish) and [ponyo](https://gitlab.cba.mit.edu/squidworks/ponyo)
