Micro 3-D Printer Makes Dust Mite Size Spacehip

MIcro-Size Spaceship Built on 3-D Laser Printer - RF CafeAs with most things, once a physical entity or concept has been produced there is always the 'need' to build one on the macro scale and on the micro scale. Here we have a 150-mm-long spaceship that was built by German's Nanoscribe GmbH using a 3-D laser photolithography printer. A scanning electron micrograph was needed to capture a picture of the model due to its smallness. It took about 50 seconds to create the model out of a photosensitive powder (a video captures the process). Of course the purpose of the exercise is not to be able to create spaceships the size of a dust mite, but to demonstrate the capability using an object that the public will be familiar with and impressed by. A micro-size 3-D model of a fountain pen just wouldn't cut it.
