3D Matter Made to Order (3DMM2O)

3D Additive Manufacturing Driven Towards the Molecular Scale

3D designer scaffolds

The Cluster of Excellence is a collaboration of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Heidelberg University (Uni HD). It pursues an interdisciplinary approach through conjunction of natural, engineering, and social sciences. 3DMM2O establishes scalable digital 3D Additive Manufacturing transcending from the molecular to the macroscopic scale.

This approach converts digital information into functional materials, devices and systems “made to order.” 3DMM2O creates a powerful technology push and pull by treating molecular materials, technologies and applications as indissolubly intertwined. On the technology side, the scientific challenges are “finer, faster, and more”, i.e., advance molecular materials and technologies in terms of resolution, speed, and multi-material printing by orders of magnitude. On the application side, we aim at functional 3D hybrid optical and electronic systems, 3D artificial materials called metamaterials, and at reconstructing functioning organotypic systems by using 3D scaffolds for cell culture.

Internal Review 2019
First Internal Review and Scientific Advisory Board Meeting

On 23 September 2019, the Cluster met for its first internal review to discuss the progress within the Thrusts. Furthermore, the newly-formed Scientific Advisory Board participated in the review and met up on the following day.

Young Scientist Retreat 2019
First Young Scientist Retreat of the Cluster

During their first Young Scientist Retreat, the doctoral and postdoctoral researchers of the Cluster 3DMM2O had an productive exchange of ideas and made connections across Thrusts and disciplines. Different team building exercises helped strengthening the group cohesion.
