3D-Printed Smallest Millennium Falcon
Engineers at France-based Micrlight3D have 3D-printed the world’s smallest Millennium Falcon, and it measures just 100 microns long. To be more specific, it’s exactly 70.8-micrometers wide, 23.4-micrometers tall and was made with a printing resolution of 200nm. The team used a µFAB-3D-Advanced system that 3D prints a new polymer material developed by the company which works with a green laser that operates at 532nm, a higher resolution than traditional red laser systems.

The Millennium Falcon was printed in 50 minutes with 10 minutes in a solvent bath to develop. They did not have to pre-bake or post-bake, thanks to the two-photon polymerization (2PP) technology used in Microlight3D’s micro-manufacturing machines, the culmination of 15 years of fundamental research at the University of Grenoble Alpes (UGA). Its sub-nanosecond green laser pulses are combined with a non-linear laser-polymer interaction to create ultra narrow and reproducible voxels that can be positioned, and moved freely, anywhere in the volume of polymer.

SPS has highly-competent sales teams that are well-established in many countries as suppliers of innovative tools and customized solutions for the semiconductor industry. With SPS, greater numbers of customers will have access to the Polos-mPrinter. Its affordability for researchers and industrial designers and ease of use will also become more widely recognized,” said Denis Barbier, CEO of Microlight3D.
