4D Printing programmable textiles

Posted on Updated on

According to the comments from the videos, ” 4D printing Programmable Textiles looks like, Lays potato chips are made. Once produced on 3D printers, objects made of programmable materials continue to take shape, folding, unfolding, or assembling themselves in response to outside stimuli such as light, movement, heat, pressure, or water.

The programmable Materials consist of material compositions designed to become highly dynamic in form and function. Yet, they are as cost-effective as traditional materials, easily fabricated, and capable of flat-pack shipping and self-assembly. These new materials include self-transforming carbon fiber, printed wood grain, custom textile composites, and other rubbers/plastics, which offer unprecedented capabilities, including programmable actuation, sensing, and self-transformation, from a simple material.”
