The importance of Additive Manufacturing (AM) in the field of micro manufacturing is increasing. Vat Polymerization Methods are one of the lead AM technologies to produce polymer micro parts. In the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), a vat photopolymerization AM machine able to print features in a micro scale was developed, build and validated. The work here presented analyses the capability of the machine in terms of geometry, when printing features of different sizes and geometries. For this study, two test parts have been designed, a circular stepped pyramid and a square stepped pyramid, both having micro size steps at the top of the pyramids. Five batches of each test part have been printed to evaluate the variability of the results in a single and in various prints.
