4D Print’s Shape shifting Architecture


Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University. The team of scientists are working  to create transformable architectures.

“This work represents an elegant advance in programmable materials assembly, made possible by a multidisciplinary approach,” said Jennifer Lewis, senior author on the new study.

“Using one composite ink printed in a single step, we can achieve shape-changing hydrogel geometries containing more complexity than any other technique, and we can do so simply by modifying the print path,” said Gladman. “What’s more, we can interchange different materials to tune for properties such as conductivity or biocompatibility.”

Matsumoto said, Our mathematical model prescribes the printing pathways required to achieve the desired shape-transforming response. He also describe, we can control the curvature both discretely and continuously using our entirely tunable and programmable method.

This mathematical modeling inverse problem. 🙂

    Hello! !
    I am always looking forward to your wonderful blog.
    Japan is a fall that I like very much about Japanese people.
    The mind is healed by the sound of depressing the fallen leaves.
