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.

An upcoming live webinar of Two-Photon Polymerization technology manufacturer Nanoscribe will feature Prof. Dr. Martin Wegener as an expert on 3D Microfabrication with highest precision and speed using Two-Photon Polymerization (2PP). The webinar will take place April 13 from 5 to 6 pm (CEST).Register here
Cluster Members are invited to take part in the lecture by Prof. Dr. Rainer Herges (University of Kiel) with the title "Molecular Spin Switching in Solution, Soft Matter and on Surfaces". The event will take place April 21 from 3 to 4 pm (CEST) on Zoom. The access information will be disseminated through internal channels.
Prof. Dr. Martin Bastmeyer (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) and Joachim Wittbrodt (Heidelberg University), the organizers of Future 3D Additive Manufacturing – The 3DMM2O Conference 2021: 3D Hybrid Organotypic Systems, were interviewed by Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg. In the interview, they give an insight into the topics of the Conference.Read the Interview (German)
The Cluster 3DMM2O warmly welcomes Jun.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Daniela Duarte Campos as a new PI in Research Thrust C3. Before joining Heidelberg University as a W1 professor recently, Daniela Duarte Campos worked at RWTH Aachen University. Her research focuses on bioprinting and advanced materials for biomedicine.Find Out More
Cluster scientists have developed a mass-producible low-cost fully printed flexible origami thermoelectric generator which is able to power an autonomous weather sensor comprising a Bluetooth module and a power management system. This approach might be a milestone for the use of low-cost TEGs. They present their results in the journal npj Flexible Electronics.Read the Press Release
The Cluster 3DMM2O has a lot of talented Young Researchers. In order two increase their visibility, we have published two interviews with female Carl Zeiss Foundation Scholarship holders Britta Weidinger (A3) and Tamara Molitor (C3). In the interviews, they talk about their research and the role of the CZF Scholarship Program for their academic career.Watch the Interviews
