MIT’s 3D Printable Magnetic Ink Creates Rapidly Shape-Sifting Objects

Often, when we’re dealing with 3D printed shape-shifting structures, they move when responding to different temperatures. But the innovative engineers at MIT, who have prior experience with using 3D printing to create…

Researchers Develop 3D Printable Smart Ink that Changes Shape and Color

3D printing is amazing enough on its own, but when it becomes 4D printing, it’s even more incredible. The fourth dimension in 4D printing is time, and 4D printed items…

Rutgers Engineers Develop 4D Printing Method for Shape-Shifting Hydrogels

Whenever I hear the term shape-shifting, I always picture some scary creature from a horror movie that’s able to change its form instantly to capture victims and is *probably* not…

Swiss Federal Institute of Technology: Researchers Use Heat for Greater Success in 4D Printing

Interest in 4D printing has continued to grow as scientists have expanded their research into creating items and materials that are helpful to research (as well as many other industries,…

TU Delft Researchers 3D Print “Some of the Most Complex Shape-Shifting Ever Reported” with Ultimaker 3D Printer and PLA

IKEA furniture is, for the most part, pretty easy to assemble. But it could be easier – imagine ordering flat-packed furniture from a place like IKEA, opening it, and watching…

Researchers 3D Print Shape-Changing Structures That Expand with Heat

“Tensegrity” is a term that refers to a structural system of floating rods in compression and cables in continuous tension. It combines the words “tensional integrity,” and has been used…

Researchers Create Microstereolithography for 4D Printing, Potential for Impacts in Medical, Solar & More

Technology can be confusing when it begins moving at such an accelerated rate, perfectly exemplified by the 3D industry, and encompassing all that goes with it, from 3D scanning to…
