The Photonic Professional GT (PPGT), by Nanoscribe, is a high precision microscale 3D printer that utilizes two photon polymerization of various photoresists. The PPGT uses its own scripting environment to control a wide variety of writing parameters and to define points and paths to be written in the chosen resist. The software also includes slicing capability so that CAD files in STL format can be converted to a tool path much like what is found in common FDM 3D printers. Writing can be performed across areas as large as 100 x 100 mm^2, with features approximately as small as 200nm x 500nm, and can be viewed in real time during the writing process.

Description

The Photonic Professional GT (PPGT), by Nanoscribe, is a high precision microscale 3D printer that utilizes two photon polymerization of various photoresists. The PPGT uses its own scripting environment to control a wide variety of writing parameters and to define points and paths to be written in the chosen resist. The software also includes slicing capability so that CAD files in STL format can be converted to a tool path much like what is found in common FDM 3D printers. Writing can be performed across areas as large as 100 x 100 mm^2, with features approximately as small as 200nm x 500nm, and can be viewed in real time during the writing process.

Applications
  • Micro/mesoscale optical 3D printing
