A tensile tester termed ‘AMT1’ was additively manufactured using stereo lithography (SLA). The structural components of the tester were produced with a desktop photopolymer printer (FormLabs, USA). The form factor of the tensile tester was designed so that it could fit under a Bruker Dimension Icon AFM. The developed system allows for materials to be tested under an AFM while being held at a static strain. Engineering drawings in detail the dimensions and design of the additively manufactured components of AMT1 and include a parts list of all the required components. The computer models and the engineering drawings for AMT1 are also accessible online at Onshape
