Can an "impossible object" be 3D printed, even impossibly small?
The answer is: Yes, if you take an impossible object design and combine it with micro 3d printing technology. A metallic impossible object at the size of a red blood cell is born.
Discovering the latest innovations at 3D Printing USA 2018
The IDTechEx Show! presents 3D Printing USA 2018 in Santa Clara on November 14 & 15, which offers the opportunity for key innovators and end users across several verticals to share their insights and expertise in the leading edge of additive manufacturing. IDTechEx forecasts the total market value of 3D printers, materials and services will be $22 billion by 2028.
3D metal printing at micrometer scale.
The FluidFM μ3Dprinter, developed by Cytosurge AG, directly prints microscopic and submicroscopic complex metal structures at room temperature and ambient pressure onto existing objects or surfaces with pinpoint (micrometer) accuracy. This opens new horizons in domains such as microelectronics, MEMS or surface functionalization.
A new function allows unique pinpoint metal additive manufacturing
Cytosurge's FluidFM® μ3Dprinter is a standalone system for printing pure metal objects at the micrometer scale. The system has received a major design upgrade and has been further improved with a new and unique function: Printing on existing structures with pinpoint (micrometer) accuracy.
The 3D printing metals market will be worth $12B in 2028
Following commercialisation in the 1990s, today metal 3D printing has established itself as an attractive manufacturing solution for prototyping and beyond.
Cytosurge AG specialises in the manufacture of micropipettes for life science applications and in 2017 commercialised the first submicron metal 3D printer, the FluidFM 3D printer.
The world's first 3D printer at sub-micron direct metal printing
