4D Printing: Shapeshifting Architecture

30908A4100000578-3416066-The_researchers_used_mathematical_modelling_to_work_out_what_pat-a-73_1453743386842

A team at the Wyss Institute and Harvard SEAS has developed a new micro-scale printing method to create transformable objects. These “4D-printed” objects go a step beyond 3D printing to incorporate a fourth dimension–time.
The method was inspired by the way plants change shape over time in response to environmental stimuli. This orchid-shaped structure is printed with a hydro gel composite ink containing aligned cellulose fibrils, which enable an-isotropic swelling. A proprietary mathematical model developed by the team precisely predicts how the fibrils will swell in water. Continue reading “4D Printing: Shapeshifting Architecture”

3D Printing Metal from Rust

A team of Northwestern University engineers has created a new way to print three-dimensional metallic objects using rust and metal powders.

While current methods rely on vast metal powder beds and expensive lasers or electron beams, Northwestern’s new technique uses liquid inks and common furnaces, resulting in a cheaper, faster, and more uniform process. The Northwestern team also demonstrated that the new method works for an extensive variety of metals, metal mixtures, alloys, and metal oxides and compounds. “This is exciting because most advanced manufacturing methods
