Although microfluidics has made huge advancements in terms of design and structure, fabrication methods remain either time-consuming or expensive relative to the facility costs and equipment needed. With this challenge in mind, the work presented in this paper demonstrates a fast and economically viable 2D/3D maskless digital light-projection method based on a stereolithography process.  Due to the fast production method and low initial setup costs, the procedure could be used for rapid prototyping applications. A video demonstration of the technology shows the ease of fabrication.
