Maximum Precision in 3D μ-Printing

Extension package is setting a new standard

The new 3D printing set for the millimeter scale endows the tiny 3 mm figure skater with a grace that literally permits her to dance on the crystal. Watch the animated “Figure skater on a crystal” on

With a new extension set for its 3D printers consisting of hardware/software components and the new photoresist IP-S, Nanoscribe provides the first available complete solution for microfabrication. By bridging the gap between 3D laser lithography and 3D printing, this highest resolution technology is now in line with other additive manufacturing technologies.
All advantages of 3D printing are also available for microfabrication. 

Hardware, software and polymer printing material components carefully adapted to each other comprise a complete solution thanks to which 3D printing of highly precise microstructures has become very easy. Close adherence to tried-and-tested standards from the macroscopic sphere permit fast realization of virtual structural data as physical objects. 

Consequently, the world market leader in 3D printing on the micrometer scale now facilitates the manufacturing of the most complex structural designs on a scale that was previously inaccessible. This technology will become the new standard in additive microfabrication.

Nanoscribe´s Photonic Professional GT printer makes the free definition of layer distances and manufacture of structural details in the sub-micrometer range effortlessly possible and in this respect differs fundamentally, e.g. from stereolithography. It is this that makes it possible to print surfaces even in optical quality. 

The extension package consisting of hardware, software and a novel photoresist is bridging the gap between 3D laser lithography and 3D printing.

“The set supplements the Photonic Professional GT 3D printer with high precision optics and the newly developed photoresist IP-S that has been optimized for it. This permits fast, ultra-precise exposure of the liquid printing material combined with maximum mechanical strength, accuracy and surface smoothness on all kinds of substrates. These properties are reflected in the brilliance of the filigree figure skater on the crystal,” CEO Martin Hermatschweiler pointed out.
