Engineers at Caltech and NASA JPL have developed a material inspired by 3D printed chain mail that can transform from a foldable, fluid-like state into specific solid shapes under pressure. The study on the 3D printed tunable structured fabrics, which began in 2018 and was delayed due to the pandemic,…
Neotech AMT of Nuremberg, Germany launched the EU Penta Project “AMPERE” which will develop reliable and scalable hybrid additive manufacturing methods for producing multifunctional mechatronics systems. The project started on April 1st, 2021, and will run until 31 March 2024. A consortium of 10 leading Research and Industrial partners from…
Smart, 4D biomedical implants that reconfigure themselves upon demand are closer to reality with a new way to print shape-shifting soft robots. Rafael Verduzco and graduate student Morgan Barnes of Rice’s Brown School of Engineering developed a method to print objects that can be manipulated to take on alternate forms…
