4D printing makes shape-shifting a reality
A recent report in the American Chemical Society’s
Applied Materials and Interfaces
journal discussed how researchers at Rice University’s Brown School of Engineering have developed what is being dubbed Reactive 4D Printing. The approach uses materials that can be printed, and then when exposed to changes in temperature, electric current, or pressure, take on alternate forms.
