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. 🙂

Stereolithography (SLA)

Stereolithography (SLA)


Stereolithography or “SLA” printing is an early and widely used 3D printing technology. The word is a portmanteau of the Greek words “stereon” (solid), “lithos” (stone) and “graphy”. Also known as additive manufacturing (a method of Rapid Prototyping), 3D printing was invented with the intent of allowing engineers to create prototypes of their designs in a more time effective manner.

technology first appeared as early as the 1970s.  Japanese researcher Dr. Hideo Kodama first invented the modern layered approach to stereolithography by using ultraviolet light to cure photosensitive polymers.

On July 16, 1984, three weeks before Chuck Hull filed his own patent.

Alain Le Mehaute, Olivier de Witte and Jean Claude André filed a patent for the stereolithography process.

The French inventors’ patent application was abandoned by the French General Electric Company (now Alcatel-Alsthom) and CILAS (The Laser Consortium). Le Mehaute believes that the abandonment reflects a problem with innovation in France.

Mr. Hull’s patent described a concentrated beam of ultraviolet light focused onto the surface of a vat filled with a liquid photopolymer. The UV light beam is focused onto the surface of the liquid photopolymer, creating each layer of the desired 3D object by means of crosslinking (or degrading a polymer).

In 1986, Mr. Hull founded the world’s first 3D printing company, 3D Systems Inc. which is currently based in Rock Hill SC.

Dr. 3D Printer smooth and shiny product


In the Dr. 3D Printer series we use new ideas and innovations. How to make 3d printing easy.

When we make 3d printed products, they are not so smooth and shiny. We found how can we make our products more look like they came out from factory, or we made it at home.

Today we are learning about how to make our products shiny and smooth.

In this video Maker’s Muse is our Dr. and he is going to give us advise about making shiny smooth product. 🙂
