3D Printed Photoresponsive Sunflower Could Have Applications in Soft Robotics and Biomedical Devices

It’s no secret that receiving flowers from someone can brighten your day – it’s nice to know that the other person is thinking of you, most flowers have a lovely smell, and they’re not bad to look at either. However, flowers of the 3D printed variety are more than just a collection of pretty petals. […]

LLNL Researchers Use Direct Ink Writing to 3D Print Silicone Metamaterials with Shape Memory Behavior

LLNL Researchers Use Direct Ink Writing to 3D Print Silicone Metamaterials with Shape Memory Behavior

A research team from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has used a direct ink writing (DIW) process to 3D print property-specific, silicone metamaterials that possess shape memory behavior, which technically makes them 4D printed. LLNL has worked with both 3D printed metamaterials and 4D printing before, but by using a DIW process, the material becomes more […]

3D Printed Adrenaline Dress from Chromat Knows When You Feel Stressed

No matter what the material, at some point in human history people have used it for clothing. Lady Gaga wore a dress made of meat to the VMAs, Japanese Samuri had armor made from paper, and recently a line of air-purifying dresses made out of pollution absorbing flexible concrete have been causing a buzz as Catalytic Clothing. […]

LED.W: 3D Labs Unveils Incredible New Shape Memory Resin for SLA 3D Printing

While the majority of the announcements we write about pertaining to new 3D printable materials refer to filaments for the FDM/FFF process, material research is being conducted around virtually every major method of 3D printing. While the copperFills and bronzeFills get the most media attention these days, it’s the development of materials for the SLA, […]
