Don't get me wrong though the idea is pretty cool, bring able to print things with materials that change what they are when stimulated, Bring on the nanosuit!
4th dimension is time in 3 dimensional space.

So is plate tectonics. Personally, I think Thor is down there banging a hammer, causing Earth-quakes... but I digress.
4D, when looked at from a technical standpoint, means simply... 4 dimensions. So, obviously the first 3 are width, height and thickness, the forth could be anything. For example, in code, you may have an array, (first) that includes an array, (second) that includes an array, (third) that, contains one more array. (forth) Now, that is one complicated code (not really) but, you could consider it a four dimensional array.

However, I completely understand when people disagree with the title 4D on the account that the fourth dimension, is generally considered time (even tho you can't really label the first, second, third or forth dimension. Which dimension is which?) I hate when I see movies labeled 4D. AHHH it makes me mad. SMELL IS NOT A DIMENSION IN ANY RESPECTS!!
