Tech Firm 3D Prints Worlds Smallest Millennium Falcon That Is Just 0.1 Millimetres

A 3D printing company has created the world’s smallest Millennium Falcon from the ‘Star Wars’ series which is just 0.1 millimetres long.

Microlight3D, based near the city of Grenoble in the French region of Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes, created the tiny replica of the iconic spaceship from the Star Wars series to mark the release of the second series of ‘The Mandalorian’.

Microlight3D posted an image of the minute model on Twitter with the message: “Do you recognise it? It is only 0.1 millimetres long!”

The company added that they believe the replica is the smallest ever model of a famous spaceship.

As the replica is 400,000 times smaller than the original, it would need to be piloted by a bacteria-sized Han Solo and Chewbacca.

The company created the model for the release of the second series of ‘The Mandalorian’, the first live-action series in the Star Wars franchise.

Created by ‘Iron Man’ director Jon Favreau, the TV series stars Pedro Pascal in the title role.

The 3D printing company’s new advertising campaign is called ‘Jedi Masters Use Green Lasers’ as competitors typically use red lasers, the same as evil Darth Vader in the movies.

Last year, the company made an 80-micron-high Yoda, making the model of the Jedi master no thicker than a human hair, according to the newspaper Ouest-France.
