Fly-over SEM video demonstrates the possibilities of 3D microfabrication
In a fly-over video a sequence of scanning electron microscope (SEM) images showcases extremely filigree structures fabricated with a Nanoscribe system. From different angles, diverse geometries illustrate the remarkable versatility of high-resolution 3D printing. The arrangement of 18 different objects and complex structures was quickly printed in little more than one hour. You can discover undercuts, porous, curved, upright, and smooth shapes – previous design limitations can now be overcome with this state-of-the-art microfabrication tool. Customizable topographies with continuous and discrete modulation alternate with complex, filigree 3D micro lattices. The surface roughness lies in the range of a few nanometers. This underlines the optical quality of 3D printed structures as demanded in microoptical applications.
Photonic Professional GT2 systems are powerful tools for the fabrication of 3D microparts with submicron features. On the technological basis of Two-Photon Polymerization (2PP), simple, complex and even organic forms can thus be produced with print volumes of up to 100 cubic millimeters using automated 3D printing processes.
