Key features

microFAB-3D is a ultra-high resolution 3D-printing system, based on two-photon polymerization direct laser writing technology. With a minimal feature size down to 0.2microns-wide, microFAB-3D opens new perspectives in microfluidics, micro-optics, cells culture, micro-robotics or meta-materials. Open and evolutive, microFAB-3D can be adapted to fit your needs.

3D-print
at the highest
resolution

Feel the power of two-photon polymerization and print features down to 200 nanometers wide! The highest resolution is achievable with any configuration of µFAB-3D, from Basic to Advanced.

A unique
technology
 

Our innovative micro-printing systems rely on industrial lasers with unique characteristics, in terms of highest printing-resolution, compactness, cost-efficiency and flexibility of use. It also provides better reliability because these industrial lasers last a very long time with no need for yearly maintenance.

Print the most
complex
structures

Unlike conventionnal 3D-printing technologies, our direct laser writing technology allows us to get rid of the traditionnal "layer-by-layer" approach. You can therefore print the most complex architectures, with no need of support material or post processing, and enhanced mechanical properties.

Adapt the
resolution throughout
the fabrication

Our software allows you to adapt the printing resolution during the fabrication. Use a big voxel to print faster, and a smaller one to realize the complex features!

Print on
the tip of
optical fibers

Align and print on structured substrates, or directly on the tip of optical fibers of various dimensions, at 1µm precision. Custom holders are available for unconventional ferrules or automated printing on multiple fibers.

Upgrade from
Standard to Advanced
easily

microFAB-3D can evolve easily depending on your needs and resources. You may explore 3D-microprinting at high resolution with microFAB-3D.Standard, and upgrade it afterwards to microFAB-3D.Advanced for large range replications, Voronoï structures, a second laser, and many other features.

Testimonials

Thanks to our microFAB-3D systems, we could develop new materials with exceptional two-photon polymerization performance. Also, the system upgradability was very convenient, and the Microlight3D team could adapt it regularly to our needs.
