Discover the enhanced performance of 3D Microfabrication

Nanoscribe Photonic Professional GT2 uses Two-Photon Polymerization (2PP) to produce filigree structures of nearly any 3D shape: crystal lattices, porous scaffolds, naturally inspired patterns, smooth contours, sharp edges, undercuts and bridges are all possible.

Flexibility in design combined with straightforward operation and a wide range of materials and substrates make the Photonic Professional GT2 an ideal instrument for science and prototyping in multi-user facilities and research laboratories.

Nanoscribe's 3D printers support cutting-edge research in over 30 countries. More than 550 pioneering research projects prove the powerful manufacturing and design capabilities of this technology.

3D Microfabrication Solution Sets

Finding the right combination of hardware, software, and materials to start a 3D printing task can be time-costly and challenging. To streamline the printing processes, We develop and provide ready-to-use Microfabrication Solution Sets for our Photonic Professional GT2 3D printers.

These sets were assembled to meet even the most challenging microfabrication tasks with user-friendly operation in mind. They are based on the most suitable combination of precision optics, a broad range of materials and sophisticated software recipes for specific applications and scales.

The field-proven sets are process-centered solutions developed to improve printing performance in different qualities. Using the sets, high-precision additive manufacturing eases microfabrication from the sub-micrometer range to millimeter-scale dimensions.

User-friendly software tools

Nanoscribe Software Workflow screen

The included software eases the fabrication of nearly any 3D shape in a straightforward process. The 3D printing workflow paves the way from CAD model import to the final micro part. The tailor-made software solutions enable the preparation and execution of print jobs in just a few minutes.

The DeScribe STL import wizard prepares a 3D CAD model for printing with field-proven software recipes. Depending on the required application, the recipe offers a set of optimized printing parameters such as layer spacing or print speed. Moreover, print strategies for solid and shell & scaffold printing are available. Users can also develop and retrieve their own individual and application-specific recipes to customize print jobs at any time.

When the printing parameters are set, a preview of the design is available in 3D – users can even simulate the printing process in 3D. Once the print job is compiled, the design is loaded in NanoWrite, the printer graphical user interface. NanoWrite automatically executes the job, controlling all printer hardware and parameters throughout the process. For real-time monitoring, an integrated live-view camera shows the progress of the printing process. These powerful visualization tools provide a smooth workflow experience for the user.
