AAAS and EurekAlert: 4-D printing gets simpler and faster

A research team led by the Associate Provost of Research, Professor Martin Dunn, at the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), introduced a new approach that simplifies and increases the potential of 4D printing. 4D printing is an emerging technology that allows a 3D-printed component to transform its structure by exposing it to heat, light, humidity, or other environmental stimuli. This […]

SUTD and DManD Develop Multi-material 4D Printing with Tailorable Shape Memory Polymers

By Dr. Paul Mignone Its only been a few years, yet despite its young age, SUTD has quickly established itself at the forefront of 4D printing research. Now under the Digital Manufacturing and Design (DManD) research centre, this research has recently reached new heights, with the development of 4D printing with tailorable shape memory polymers (SMP). This research, currently being led by […]
