Micro-milling is used to realize rapid prototypes with similar materials as used for injection molding. The flat bed 3 axis machine with vacuum table allows to mill large substrate with small feature sizes. Parts realized are shown in the attached paper -> e.g. Calibration Plate (Caliplate) and Micro-fluidic mixer.
