3D Printing News Alert(Higher temperature responsive 4D printing)

Posted on Updated on

Higher temperature responsive 4D printing is a type of 4D printing technology that involves using materials that can change their shape or properties in response to changes in temperature. This type of 4D printing is often used in applications that require materials to adapt to different environmental conditions, such as aerospace, automotive, and medical industries. In higher-temperature responsive 4D printing, the materials used are often polymers or composites specially designed to respond to changes in temperature. These materials can be programmed to change their shape or properties in a specific way when exposed to a certain temperature range. For example, a material could be programmed to contract or expand in response to changes in temperature or to change color when heated or cooled.

The use of higher temperature responsive 4D printing technology has many potential applications. For example, it could create self-assembling structures, such as medical implants or sensors, that can adapt to different environmental conditions. It could also be used to develop shape-changing materials that can be used in the design of products, such as shoes or clothing, that adapt to the shape and movements of the wearer. Higher temperature-responsive 4D printing is an exciting area of research and development that has the potential to revolutionize many industries by enabling the creation of materials that can adapt to changing environmental conditions.

According to Chen X, Liu X, Ouyang M, and Dr. Connor Myant, a lecturer at the Dyson School of Design Engineering and Imperial College London (ICL),” explored 4D printing and its potential to herald new opportunities for industries and consumers.,” a novel electrochemical 3D printer with two deposition nozzles was presented which is capable of printing temperature responsive multi-metal (copper and nickel) 4D structures. An electrospun nanofibre nib was used to provide sufficient back pressure to the hydraulic head exerted by the electrolyte, replacing the porous sponge material used in prior works.”
