3D nanoprinting is becoming popular as the technology makes inroads into some of the most microscopic venues. Alison Kay, a consultant with Ernst and Young, recently said that we can expect 3D printing to touch nearly every industry, directly or indirectly: There is the potential for 3D printing to revolutionize the way we make almost anything. This year, I expect it will become faster and cheaper, with new materials that enhance commercial possibilities. If 3D printing is disruptive, nanoprinting is potentially more disruptive. Nanoprinting Medical Devices Engineers at the University of Maryland recently created the first 3D-printed fluid circuit element that is so tiny that 10 of the elements could feasibly rest on the width of a human hair (shown below). The diode, which ensures that fluids move in a single direction, is an important feature for products like implantable devices that are used to provide various therapies for […]
