Presentation Summary

1. UV light exposure during the printing can substantially cure polymeric materials in-flight and complete the cure immediately on impact.
 
2. This nearly instantaneous curing allows structures to be built up in three dimensions.
 
3. Aspect ratios of more than 20:1 are achieved with micrometer-scale posts, cylinders, and cones.
 
4. With robotic manipulation of the print head and target substrate, the 3D features can be fabricated in nearly any orientation including the fabrication of hollow structures such as microbubbles.
 
5. Co-depositing electronic and polymeric materials can be used to fabricate hybrid structures.
