4D print self-transformation
As said by Tibbits,” Possibilities from 4D printed materials that transform underwater, or fibers that snap into a particular shape. We want to think about what’s coming next and see if we can really lead that worked with Steelcase to develop a process for 3D printing plastic into the liquid for furniture parts, called rapid liquid printing. This process prints within a gel bath to provide support for the printed parts and minimize the effect of gravity. With this printing technique, they can print centimeter- to meter-scale parts in minutes to hours with a range of high-quality industrial materials like silicone rubber, polyurethane, and acrylics.”
According to Uniformed Services University and NASA, “Using 3D biological printers to produce usable human organs has long been a dream of scientists and doctors around the globe. However, printing the tiny, complex structures found inside human organs, such as capillary structures, has proven difficult to accomplish in Earth’s gravity environment. To overcome this challenge, Techshot designed its BioFabrication Facility (BFF) to print organ-like tissues in microgravity, acting as a stepping stone in a long-term plan to manufacture whole human organs in space using refined biological 3D printing techniques.”
American Chemical Society is researching about 4D Printer. They have the ACS 255th National Meeting & Exposition in New Orleans.
4D printer could accelerate technology. Scientists report that they have developed a powerful new printer that could streamline the creation of self-assembling structures that can change shape after being exposed to heat and other stimuli.
American Chemical Society says this unique technology could accelerate the use of 4D printing in aerospace, medicine, and other industries.:)
NASA’s Meteorite resistant chain mail 4D Printed fabric.
NASA are stepping straight into the future of textiles with their 4D printed ‘space fabric’—a metallic material intended to be used like ‘chain mail’ to protect astronauts and spacecraft alike during their missions.The material remains fold-able and retains the ability to change shape easily.
4D print self-transformation can be more useful in future wearable technologies.:)
Mr.Jonathan Stickland, is our specialist in 4d print technology. We know some of the parts of 4D printing. 4D printing is emerging technology.
4d printing would be useful for car manufacturing.The structured technology of 4d printing is designed for repairing damage without command cars can be safer with less regular maintenance and servicing 4d printing can be used to ensure that the manufacturing process of cities can be built on time efficient schedules.
This will benefits our future medical technologies. 🙂
ACES researchers have turned their attention to the medical field of soft robotics, manufacturing a valve that actuates in response to its surrounding water’s temperature. ACES is the first group to combine printing a 4D device with four different cartridges simultaneously, while using tough gels with the incorporated actuating materials.
The fourth dimension is time, shape shifting in fact, and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) at the University of Wollongong is helping to set the pace in the next revolution in additive manufacturing.
4D printed water valve will save our money
We always wonder it will be fun to buy 4D printer. But the 4D printers mystery is solved !!!!
Jenny is from BBC, she got in touch with the chief scientist, Professor Marc in het Panhuis.
What will be 4D printing future, where can we buy 4D printers, what technology are we using our product 4D printed. This is an advance technology.
For these questions, we need to go to this site.
