Nanoscribe’s Nano-Scale 3D Printing System

(3DInsider)  Five years of research at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany focused on developing 3D models at the microscopic level. That effort spun off their 3D printing technology into a company called Nanoscribe.
Nanoscribe was given a commercial form with the Photonic Professional GT 3D printing system. It is used to print models at the nano, micro, and meso scale for areas with very specific applications. Nanoscribe uses a unique method of 3D printing for photopolymers that creates tiny medical and optical instruments using the technique of Two-Photon Polymerization. This method allows for a light-sensitive photopolymer to be selectively cured with the help of a light source.
