About us

Our complementary team combines more than three decades of experience in high-resolution 3D printing, fluidics, polymer chemistry, materials science, design, and technology company creation and growth.

As a spin-off from TU Dresden, our team is working together to realize our vision of microscale multi-material 3D printing.

Dr. Robert Kirchner

Managing Director

Robert develops multi-material 3D printing since 2018. He has an engineering degree from Technische Universität Dresden and has 10+ years of experience in 3D micro-nano-fabrication. Robert drives the vision, the strategic development, and supports the system design.
