#9 3D Printed Molecular Nanotech Art
Artist, Shane Hope uses 2 cutting edge technologies for these pieces. One is nanotechnology which he uses to create this models of extremely small objects, magnified. The other is of course 3D printing, in which he prints those models out on his RepRap 3D printer.
