Incredible! The potential for medical benefits alone are astounding. Imagine being able to construct customized nano-bots that could repair certain tissue damage of internal organs. The possibilities are indeed endless.

Jack B, interesting that you mentioned the various scales of 3D printing methods, and enfolding things printed with one scale into things printed with another. We covered a related idea about printed 3D electronics enfolded within 3D printed objects, like electronics integrated into an airplane wing:

The possibilites are exciting. You have large scale 3D printing building interior structures that could not otherwise be made. Add to that the possibility of nanoscale 3D printing, and you begin to imagine the things printed into the housing of larger parts. Machines within machines if you would. Pretty cool stuff!

Thanks, Elizabeth. I think using nanoscale tech to make new and never-before-seen materials is wonderfully innovative.

I agree with Greg. Nanotechnology more and more is becoming the foundation for a lot of innovation these days and to add the possibllity of 3D fabricating these materials leaves it open for even more potential. Good story, Ann.

Exciting new technology with wide open possibilities.  In addition to nano sensing and nano electronics applications, this could also produce big advances in nano machinery fabrication.  I am especially intrigued by the ability to use different materials with this process.  It will be interesting to follow the commercialization of this technology.
