A 3D-printed stepper motor dispenser assembly for a 10ml plastic syringe was constructed. This dispenser assembly was used to run a set of calibration experiments to evaluate its suitability to dose nanocellulose mass. The control of the dosing was done with a Labview software along with an Arduino Uno board. A set of dosing trials was conducted with three different dosing speeds and two different dosing volumes to verify the accuracy and repeatability of the constructed system in the nanocellulose mass dosing. The average dosing accuracy of the system was estimated to be at acceptable level for the application.
