Photonic Professional GT – nano 3d printer

This little spaceship, known as the Hellcat, was printed using the worlds fastest commercial 3d nano printer, the Nanoscribe Photonic Professional GT. It measures just 125µm x 81µm x 26.8µm (l x w x h) and is about as long as the width of a human hair.

The Photonic Professional GT uses a 3D laser lithography system developed by Nanoscribe that can handle data transfer rates of more than 5 terabits per second. The system achieves its high-speed through the use of galvo technology – a series of rotating mirrors that deflect laser light for quick and precise focus. Similar technology is used in laser light shows and in the scanning units of CD and DVD drives.
