4D printing material
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
University of Wollongong Australia, Prof Marc in het Panhuis explains 4D printing help the future of design.:)
This is good news for flat feet and wide feet.
Carbon and Adidas are partners for production and manufacturing in the Futurecraft 4D.
They have developed the first additive manufacturing mass production footwear, making before impossible midsole geometries possible and paving the way for custom, high-performance shoes that meet each customer of the unique needs.
Adidas will release 300 pairs of the Futurecraft 4D shoe to friends and family; more than 5,000 pairs are expected to release this Fall / Winter 2017 season. See below for the official photos of the Adidas Futurecraft 4D shoe
Intelligent materials in 4D printing.The fourth dimension in 4D printing refers to the ability of material objects to change form and function after they are produced, thereby intelligent materials are the important factor to make 4D printing products.
4D printing intelligent materials are self-healing material.
This technological trends can help deliver sustainable growth in future. 4D printing is large-scale deployment. Nowadays many intelligent materials and products are available commercially.
Several universities and research technologies continued worldwide academic research. However, there is a widely held view that existing intelligent materials could find far more widespread uses and the limited commercialized materials reflect in part the many misconceptions surrounding exactly what intelligent materials, where they can use.
One of the most influential ways of using intelligent materials is to adopt this new technology. 🙂
