Miniature structures 3D printed

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:37 pm on 7 June 2019

Miniaturisation is at the heart of a breakthrough new innovation using 3D printing. 

The invention is called MicroMaker and it can print structures smaller than a human hair. 

MicroMaker's creators Andrea Bubendorfer and Andrew Best are finalists in the 2019 KiwiNet Awards, and Andrea is with us now to tell us more about the technology.
