    Abstract

    This paper reports a stereolithography-like 3D fabrication method based on soft-lithography techniques. It only requires standard equipment for photolithography, but it makes true 3D structures fabrication possible. We developed a rotating partition by this method in a microfluidic channel, which cannot be achieved by conventional soft-lithography, and demonstrated a prototyping three-dimensional flow mixer.
