In fact, why stop at fibers? Why not just print perfectly ordered particles and open up all manner of possibilities for liquid chromatography? When I finally made it to New Zealand, I was given a choice: either work on the original topic that I applied for – or take on this new area of 3D printing. I was so struck by the potential of the 3D printing approach that I immediately decided to pursue it, despite knowing virtually nothing about 3D printing... or liquid chromatography!
