The timeline says by around 2060, do you agree with this? I would push it up to 2080-2090.

I'm not sure it's possible to predict this, I'm not even sure anyone's working on it or planning to do so. It's going to take a while, that's a given. We still have to use 3D printing to its full potential.

Eventually. We can already do this, but it will definitely take a while.


What difference does it make?

Do you mean being able to create things at the nano scale or creating things with nano scale precision? If it's the latter we already have those.

We can also manipulate individual atoms already, so I'm optimistic we'll see nanofabricators within 50 years.

Nanofabricators are more advanced 3D Printers I think 2065-2070
