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!
3D Printed Jewelry Designer Desmond Chan has created some very unique peices of jewelry that could have only been continuously reproduced and manufactured by 3D printing. Below he shares images, inspiration and his direction. "I am a jewelry designer based in Hong Kong. Inspired by everything, from Modern Art to something I see on the […]
