The Nanoscribe Photonic Professional GT (PPGT) 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. While many resists can theoretically be used, Nanoscribe has its own specially-formulated resins optimized for their two-photon lithography system. Writing at different length scales and resolutions can be optimized by choosing the appropriate resin. 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 mm x 100 mm, with features approximately as small as 200 nm x 500 nm, and can be viewed in real time during the writing process.
