3D Printing at the Microscale Will Cut Cost and Size

There's been a lot of R&D activity recently in 3D printing at the nanoscale, as we've reported . But that's all R&D. Meanwhile, 3D printing at the microscale is becoming much closer to reality in manufacturing. Optomec's Aerosol Jet systems -- recently starring in the first 3D printing in the mass production of consumer electronics -- have now been used by several customers for printing 3D polymer and composite structures at the micron scale with embedded electronics and biomedical applications. Customers have been asking for, and exploring, this new ability for several months, Mike O'Reilly, Optomec's director of Aerosol Jet product management, told Design News . "We discovered there's a large and growing appetite for the ability to print microscale, freeform, freestanding, polymer structures and smart devices," he said. "In medical devices, this is especially true for mi...
