4D Printing Classroom in Modern Interactive Learning Environments

Bioprinting 2021 Volume 24, Article e00169

The emergence of four-dimensional (4D) printing and bioprinting in additive manufacturing (AM), which require knowledge of multi-physics, chemistry, and engineering skills, are bringing many engineering applications in biomedical devices, wearables, and robotics. This newly emerging technology has become a feasible commercial proposition because of lower costs, more design freedom, and more rapid production methods. This serves as a significant multidisciplinary research and training platform for both academia and the professional world. This work aims at enhancing researchers’ interest, knowledge, and skills in the emerging field of 4D printing and bioprinting. A greater knowledge of 4D printing and promotion of its…

Taking 4D Bio/Printing To Classroom

ADDFABCOMP– Additive Fabrication of Composite 2021

The emergence of four-dimensional (4D) printing in additive manufacturing (AM), which requires knowledge in multi-physics, chemistry, and engineering skills, is bringing many applications in biomedical, robotics, aerospace, and food industries. The increased usage of AM technology and smart materials in industry means that companies are seeking to develop and manage production system for academics with the multidisciplinary abilities and knowledge. This enables a high interdisciplinary platform for research and project modules suitable to be used in the academic environment for hands-on students training. This paper proposed an easy to implement and follow 4D bio/printing module well designed for students and…

Topology-Optimized 4D Printing of a Soft Actuator

Acta Mechanica Solida Sinica 2020 Volume 33, Pages 418–430

Soft robots and actuators are emerging devices providing more capabilities in the field of robotics. More flexibility and compliance attributing to soft functional materials used in the fabrication of these devices make them ideal for delivering delicate tasks in fragile environments, such as food and biomedical sectors. Yet, the intuitive nonlinearity of soft functional materials and their anisotropic actuation in compliant mechanisms constitute an existent challenge in improving their performance. Topology optimization (TO) along with four-dimensional (4D) printing is a powerful digital tool that can be used to obtain optimal internal architectures for the efficient performance of porous soft actuators.…
