Paper Abstract

The possibility of implementing Feynman's proposal for achieving ultraminiaturization by an iterative process of 3D machines making even-smaller 3D machines is considered in the nature of a `thought experiment.' A large array of Stewart platform machines is proposed as the `machine/factory' which possibly could have the capability to make ever-smaller versions of itself.
