With a printed voxel size on the order of 200nm, this unique 3D-printer (Nanoscribe) is capable of creating micrometer-scale objects with (quasi-)random geometries. With such a small feature-size, it is only normal that the maximum size that can be printed in a reasonable time is in the order of a few millimeter. Shown in the images are some printed designs. Our 3D confocal microscope is capable of measuring the printed structures but for a better visualisation, a Scanning Electron Microscope or a Focussed Ion Beam-microscope is recommended.
