Nanoscribe, a BICO company, recently contributed to a video published by Samsung that beautifully exhibits the smallest technological wonders in the microscale world with breathtaking images. The key to this project is Nanoscribe’s latest additive manufacturing technology – Two-Photon Grayscale Lithography (2GL) – which results in microscopic models with incredible detail and precision.

Micro miracle models

From a teenager with a game console to a detailed 56-story skyscraper, all 8 microscopic models for Samsung’s promotional video were crafted using 3D printing by 2GL, the brand-new proprietary additive manufacturing technology based on Two-Photon Polymerization.

These polymer microstructures, seemingly far from practical applications, represent the demanding requirements of nano and microscale manufacturing. Nanoscribe’s technology excels in delivering unparalleled high precision for any design, smooth surfaces, impeccable edges, high shape fidelity, high aspect ratio structures, and, above all, high printing speed.

3D printing by 2GL for superior quality

Nanoscribe’s Quantum X platform, renowned for its patented Two-Photon Grayscale Lithography (2GL) technology, has become a preferred solution for industrial micro-optics mastering and manufacturing. Now, with the introduction of 3D printing by 2GL, Nanoscribe is enhancing surface quality, and shape accuracy, and is drastically accelerating manufacturing throughput by up to 60 times.

Quantum X product line

The Quantum X product line harnesses Nanoscribe’s state-of-the-art Two-Photon Polymerization-based 3D microfabrication, translating the precision in Samsung’s video to specific applications and markets. For instance, Quantum X align, with its Aligned Two-Photon Lithography (A2PL) functionality, is dedicated to 3D printing freeform micro-optics that are precisely aligned to optical fibers or photonic chips. With the new proprietary 2GL voxel tuning technology, this is now accomplished with outstanding quality and unrivaled speed.

Recently, Nanoscribe used its microprinting technology to print a true-to-scale model of a butterfly egg, designed by PUNTOZERO, a Milan-based company specializing in design for additive manufacturing.
