Research Team Takes Advantage of Common FFF 3D Printing Defect to 4D Print Plastic Self-Folding Objects

Research Team Takes Advantage of Common FFF 3D Printing Defect to 4D Print Plastic Self-Folding Objects

A lot of research has been undertaken regarding 3D printed self-folding structures and 3D printed items that can self-assemble, but a team from Carnegie Mellon University is changing things up in the field by using an inexpensive 3D printer to fabricate flat, self-folding items made from plastic. The researchers, from the university’s Human-Computer Interaction Institute (HCII), have […]

Powerful New 4D Printer Speeds Next-Generation, Next-Dimension 3D Printing

3D printed objects that can move and change shape are technically 4D printed – the fourth dimension comes in the object’s ability to change shape when exposed to environmental stimuli like heat, humidity, and/or light, and then revert back to its original form. At this week’s National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society […]

QMUL Researchers Use Inkjet 3D Printing and Self-Assembly Technologies to Create Constructs Using Cells and Molecules

Typically when we hear about self-assembling technology in the 3D printing world, it’s usually referring to robots or pieces of furniture that can build themselves. But researchers from Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) are continuing to research molecular 3D printing, and recently developed a new technique, which uses molecular self-assembly, to create constructs that look like […]

MIT Self-Assembly Lab: Might Your 4D Smartphone One Day Build Itself?

MIT Self-Assembly Lab: Might Your 4D Smartphone One Day Build Itself?

One must wonder what Alexander Graham Bell would think today. While he was credited with the invention of the telephone, it’s hard to decide who to give credit to first for the entire culture that’s been created around this communication device that has certainly evolved in shape and usage. We may have a love/hate relationship […]
