New features, new tools, and new processes extend the 3D microprinting capabilities of the Photonic Professional GT2 toward the macroscale, expanding the range of applications. The new 3D printer provides user-friendly solutions for multiple scales: The 3D Microfabrication Solution Sets.
The device combines the precision of two-photon polymerization with a field-proven and straightforward 3D printing workflow for nano-, micro-, and mesoscale structures up to millimeter dimensions. The printers offer a high degree of automation and are used for additive manufacturing and maskless lithography. The Photonic Professional GT2 is the ideal instrument for highest precision 3D printing for a broad range of use cases.
Nanoscribe GmbH – Photonic Professional GT2
3D Microfabrication from Nano- to Macroscale
Nanoscribe is market- and technology leader for 3D printers on the nano-, micro-, and mesoscale. The Photonic Professional GT2 systems shift the boundaries of high-resolution additive manufacturing for the fabrication of macroscale structures with millimeter dimensions. The 3D printers combine the technology of two-photon polymerization (2PP) with a regular 3D printing workflow for additive manufacturing and maskless lithography. These devices offer enormous 3D design freedom, submicron feature sizes, and optical-quality surface finishes.
When common additive manufacturing technologies like stereolithography reach their limitations, these 3D printers reveal their full potential, providing a 100-fold higher resolution and smaller features sizes.
The Photonic Professional GT2 provides solutions that are based on the combination of tailor-made resins, objectives and software settings. With these tools, working with the 3D printer is straightforward. With a powerful, user-friendly software, the systems are ideal for printing polymer objects directly from CAD models and offer highest degree of automation. The one-step process enables the additive fabrication of arbitrary shapes in 3D: steep slopes, sharp edges, smooth surfaces, and even full 3D designs such as freeform optics.
The 3D printed structures are used directly or serve as templates for post-print processes (e.g., ALD, CVD or electroplating) to meet other materials than polymers. 3D printed parts are very suitable as polymer masters for replication, enabling serial production of, e.g., injection molded parts.
