A free-form exploration of computer-aided designs (CAD) for nanoscale construction. These digital blueprints are used to manufacture miniscule nanostructures as intricate as the Eiffel Tower. Their repeating fractal-like octagonal design imparts great strength and flexibility, resulting in one of the most promising meta-materials ever devised. This episode was made in collaboration with Lucas Meza and the Julia Greer Group at the California Institute of Technology.
