Nanoscribe launch the world’s fastest and highest definition 3D printer that can print at a sub-micrometre level.
The Photonic Professional GT is the latest generation of the German company’s 3D laser lithography systems and is the fastest 3D micro and nanostructure printer on the planet.
It has a small form factor and constructs tiny objects with complex shaped polymer structures by means of “two-photon polymerisation.”
Laser (or multi-photon) lithography is a highly complex technique for creating small features in a photosensitive material. The process is speeded up in the Photonic Professional GT by a ultra-high precision galvo technology, which laterally deﬂects the laser focus position by use of a galvanic mirror system.
Like other 3D printers, it can CAD import via DXF and STL files but that is where the similarities end. It only prints up to a one centimetre range and is not designed for rapid prototyping of new products. Real world practical uses are likely to be found in the scientific and medical community.
However, to prove how miniscule and detailed the results can be, the company has 3D printed a model of the Empire State Building at just 220 microns (0.22 millimetres!) in height as well as a 10 micron wide model of a space ship – an incredible 0.01 millimetre!
Provision Interactive Technologies Inc. announced an agreement with DB Dava LLC to launch a 3D Network starting in a national Pharmacy chain soon. Provision's 3D holographic kiosks or "3d reward centers" are scheduled to go into the US retail market this year. Although the kiosk will do the same thing as its 2D counterpart it […]
Only available to developers so far… but someday soon we may all be building and interacting with 3D worlds around us. These development kits are designed for professional developers interested in exploring the future of mobile 3D sensing. Developers will receive updates as the software algorithms and APIs evolve. These development kits are not a consumer […]
