3D-printing of functional structures has emerged to an important technology in research and development. While being reliable on the micro and sub-micron scale, it becomes very challenging when aiming for nano-sized geometries. Among the very few direct-write techniques on that scale, Focused Electron Beam Induced Deposition is one of the promising candidates as this technology has recently done tremendous steps forward. In particular, this technology allows additive fabrication of complex, freestanding 3D nano-architectures on almost any material and surface morphology, which enables entirely new 3D nano-applications (e.g. plasmonics, artificial spin-ice or nano-probes). The contribution starts with an introduction of FEBID and sheds light on recent progress, which leverages this technology from a scientifically oriented fabrication tool into the status of a reliable and predictable 3D-nanoprinter. In the following, several applications are discussed to demonstrate the new possibilities of this generic fabrication technology. Finally, the talk gives an overview of ongoing activities together with future perspectives beyond current limitations.
