Invited speaker at U of T – Nanoscribe demo

This past March, our own Gustavo de Oliveira gave an invited virtual talk to a group of students of the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, at the University of Toronto. Gustavo’s lecture was the last portion of a class on micro/nanoscale additive manufacturing, part of a new open course: MIE1724: Additive Manufacturing in Engineering Applications, and provided an overview and demonstration of micro/nanoscale 3D printing with our Nanoscribe Photonic Professional GT system. The first of its kind at the U of T, the entire course will eventually be made available to the general public.

We will send another notification when the course comes online. In the meantime, you can watch the whole class about micro/nano additive manufacturing below; Gustavo’s lecture starts at 01:37:30.
