    This paper presents a fast, easy and low-cost method to create suspended structures using SU-8 photoresist. The method consists of laminating SU-8 foils on top of previously defined topographies, followed by SU-8 foil patterning. This surface-micromachining approach has been successfully employed to fabricate a variety of structures, including high-voltage electrodes over CMOS chips, stacked vias, closed cavities, channels, cantilevers and double-clamped beams
