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…

Earwig Wings Inspire Researchers to 3D Print Multimaterial, Self-Folding Origami Elements

Many scientists have been inspired by wings, be they bat, bird, or butterfly, in their 3D printing research projects. A team of researchers from ETH Zurich and Purdue University have…

Researchers Inspired by Origami to Develop 3D Printing Alternative to Building Lattice Structures

3D printing technology is often combined with the principles of origami to fabricate things like face masks, robots, and self-folding electronics. Notably, researchers at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) in…

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…

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…

Researchers Use PowerPoint Slide and LED Projector to Create Self-Folding 3D Origami Structures

I remember learning about Microsoft PowerPoint for the first time when I was in junior high, and since then I have used the program often; little did I know that a…
