Exaddon µAM Printing - Impossible Object


Can an impossible object be 3D printed, even impossibly small? The answer is: Yes, if you take an impossible object design and combine it with micro 3D printing technology. A metallic impossible object at the size of a red blood cell is born. 

 
 

Exaddon µAM Printing - Nano printing - additive micro manufacturing of metals

The animation shows an example of how the Exaddon µ3Dprinter prints submicron structures in liquid or air. 

Exaddon CERES systems use hollow cantilevers to dispense various fluids in air or liquid. Their unique combination of microfluidics and atomic force microscopy (AFM) feedback allow to monitor and control the deposition process. This allow achieving 2D and 3D prints at different speeds, sizes and resolutions with great freedom of design.

 
 

Exaddon µAM Printing - Microscale Spring


We printed a microscale copper spring to test the material properties of our printed objects. 

The pure copper spring showed excellent mechanical stability, elastic behavior, and adhesion to the gold substrate.

Exaddon µAM Printing - Tensile Strength Test

In a standard tensile test,    the expected behavior is as follows; the force rises rapidly at first, and the initial linear curve shows the elastic behavior of the material. At the point of maximum force, a neck (narrower section) begins to form; all subsequent plastic deformation is confined to this neck, until fracture finally occurs there. As can be seen in the video, this is exactly what happened with our microscale test piece.

Exaddon µAM Printing - Butterfly Fish Impossible Object


As part of a series of impossible objects designed by world renowned mathematician and engineer, Professor Kokichi Sugihara of from Meiji Institute for Advanced Study of Mathematical Sciences in Japan, we 3D printed these impossible objects in pure copper.

Such tiny objects can be used for integration into watches and jewelry, either to mark them as part of a unique series, or for purposes of copyrighting - no other technology is able to produce such tiny metal objects, so genuine articles will be easily identifiable.
