2PP 3D Printing: Tailored Software Reduces Stitching, Saves Time, Boosts Efficiency

(UpNano: Vienna) — With the release of the latest software upgrade for its NanoOne platform of high resolution 3D printers, UpNano has pushed the limits of the fastest 2-photon polymerization-based (2PP) 3D printer on the market. Now, smart stitching can improve the quality of the final product, and the already high printing speed can be increased even more. Also, using the same objective and material, several completely different print jobs can be combined into one, saving costs and time. All this is greatly simplified by an intuitive user interface that is an integral part of all software developed by UpNano. The upgrade is compatible with all NanoOne printers; most customers have acquired it already.

With the release of this latest software upgrade, UpNano again demonstrates its strong sense of innovation. “Just recently we held our annual customer event—an occasion where we always learn a lot about the evolving requirements of our worldwide customer base,” says Hirner. “With our latest software upgrade, a lot of those needs are met. We are very excited to further improve the performance of our printers together with our valued NanoOne customer network.”

The 2PP 3D printers by UpNano are the fastest high-resolution 3D printers on the market. Used in industry and academia alike, they have already set new standards in electronics as well as in micro-optics, and for biocompatible applications in cell and medical research. The compact desktop print system offers high-resolution 3D printing across 12 orders of magnitude. Now the latest software upgrade adds significant functionality.

Seamless progress

The basis of the upgrade is the ability to define several printing parameters individually and set complex changes to them in advance during the printing process. The potential this offers for the quality of the print product and the speed and efficiency of the printing process can be dramatic.

“The unique features of our latest upgrade help to reduce this,” Hirner says. “By addressing more parameters individually and dynamically, it’s now possible to define the exact positions of stitching lines. Depending on the final structure, this allows for a smart integration of the seams into the design.”

Most people consider ads a nuisance, but they do serve a useful function besides allowing media companies to stay afloat. They keep you aware of new products and services relevant to your industry.

The resolution of the printing process can also be altered as it runs. Consequently, parts that require less resolution can be printed at the lowest necessary one, together in the same printing run with elements that require much higher resolution. “One can print fewer defined parts quickly, and step-by-step increase the resolution of the process as one comes to the finer defined structural elements,” says Hirner. “In this way, very neat printing of complex structures with different requirements for resolution becomes possible. This can save up to 50% process time.”

“Now, products with exactly defined seams can be printed,” says Denise Hirner, COO and co-founder of UpNano. Seams are a serious quality issue for 3D-printed products. They are the result of moving the field of view during printing to join (or ‘stitch’) the printed elements of each subsequent field of view together.

It also increases the flexibility in defining the workload of a NanoOne because more print jobs can be run overnight, at weekends, or during other out-of-office times.
