Weekend Fun: Star Wars Micro Machines, But REALLY Micro!

Hasbro’s Star Wars HasLab is all about offering huge vehicles. However, French company Microlight3D shows that you can also go in the opposite direction and make things tiny. REALLY tiny. Their 3D printing technology uses green laser light which allows for a higher resolution, i.e. you can print smaller objects. Microlight3D printed a Millennium Falcon that is just 100 µm long (1 µm = 1/1,000 mm = 1/1,000,000 meter. That’s 0.003937 inches, but just learn metric already). That’s about the width of a human hair. Which makes this Millennium Falcon probably the smallest version ever. The scale is roughly 1:345,000. The first Death Star using that scale would have a diameter of 4.63 cm / 1.82 in. The Millennium Falcon is so tiny Microlight3D actually had to use a scanning electron microscope to take a good photo of the ship. Would you be interested in actual Star Wars Micro Machines? You could easily store an entire fleet in a thimble! Saves you a lot of space! Of course toy photographers may face a few challenges here! Check out the Microlight3D website for some more technical background info! 3D printing will only become more important in the future!
