The 3-dSupremer (3-dimensional surface processing through elimination by mechanical removing) equipped a five-axis computer-controlled system, which can create a bio-inspired geometrical surfaces onto a wide range of three-dimensional surface. In the pre-processing, a masking processing is performed to increase machining accuracy, where a super ink jet or a micro dispensing system places an abrasion-resistant material onto a three-dimensional surface. In the post-processing, a mechanical removal processing is performed, where the MSJ (micro slurry jet) is applied in accordance with the pre-processed surface. Although the surface-processing accuracy of the system will be lower than that of a nanoimprint technology, the system can be used to create a texture design on a variety of materials.
