DManD CodeKitchen Series 6: Synthetic Bio-textures

Create micro and nano – natural surface patterns with bench-top PDMS molding Taught by Professor Hong Yee Low | 5-7 PM, Thursday August 11 | Teaching Lab 2.614-2.615  What makes a gecko’s feet so sticky? Or the butterflies colors so vivid? In nature, fine-geometrical patterns produces an amazing diversity of functions in the nature. With the emergence of nano-scale imaging procedures, materials, and fabrication techniques, researchers and designers alike have the ability to recreate these structures: to better understand their properties, or […]

CodeKitchen Series 5: Digital Foundry

Learn the basics of  high and low tech metal 3-D printing. Taught by: Kenneth Teo Desktop 3D printers and open-source design software allow anyone to make, customized objects: but these designs limited to plastics, and low-production prototyping. On the other hand, metal 3D printing, though less well-known, will soon emerge as a way to manufacturing production grade products in the near future. In this […]
