MIT CSAIL Researchers Develop 3D Printable Structures That Fold Themselves

Frequently, when we hear about self-folding 3D printable structures, they’re based on origami. But researchers from the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have built a self-folding printable device prototype that’s actually a variation on their 3D printable multimaterial electronic device that was inspired by the golden tortoise beetle. While other researchers have […]

MIT CSAIL Researchers Develop Design System for 3D Printing Topology Optimization

Whether they’re inspired by a gold beetle to 3D print a multi-material electronic device, creating programmable soft 3D printing materials for robots and drones, or making it possible to watch 3D movies at home without having to wear 3D glasses, we’re always interested to hear what new innovation the researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and […]

Conch’s Strength Inspires MIT Researchers to 3D Print Stronger Protective Gear

Conch’s Strength Inspires MIT Researchers to 3D Print Stronger Protective Gear

As a kid growing up in Florida, I was always thrilled to find a conch shell intact, washed up on the shore. My grandmother had an enormous collection of them on her sunny porch and we all loved to put the big shells up to our ears to ‘hear the ocean’ from within the shiny mollusks. That’s a magic […]
