Applications


Nanoscribe’s 3D printing technology provides a number of advantages for additive manufacturing of polymer parts with dimensions ranging from a few microns up to the millimeter scale. The high printing resolution enables sub-micron feature sizes and allows a design freedom for very complex parts with internal features otherwise impossible to produce with conventional manufacturing techniques. These benefits support research and development tasks along a broad range of academic disciplines and industries. Below you will find a selection of examples demonstrating the versatility of this technology.
