3D printing and actively switchable redox‐active oligo(aniline)‐based materials are combined to create novel tuneable 3D photonic materials. By a direct laser writing process, switchable functional structures with submicrometer features are fabricated. Reversible changes in the refractive index of the written materials are generated with negligible size changes.
