Programmable Meta-materials Based on Multistable Meta-atoms – Presented by Mohamed Zanaty, EPFL

Mohamed Zanaty

Mohamed Zanaty, INSTANT-LAB, EPFL, will speak at 4D Printing & Meta Materials Conference, on April 17, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

In this talk, I will present a novel family of programmable metamaterial based programmable multistable mechanisms (PMM). PMMs are multistable mechanisms where the stability behavior depends on the mechanism boundary conditions. Different examples of PMMs will be presented to illustrate the concept of stability programming.

A DIY approach to Rapid Liquid Printing – Duo presentation Jori van der Kolk & Vimukthi Gunatilleke, Eindhoven University of Technology

A DIY approach to Rapid Liquid Printing – Duo presentation Jori van der Kolk & Vimukthi Gunatilleke, Eindhoven University of Technology, at 4D Printing & Meta Materials Conference, on April 17, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

Rapid Liquid printing is a 3D printing technology where a viscous material is printed in a suspension material. Based on research from MIT’s self-assembly lab, Jori and Vim build a Liquid printer from readily available 3D printer parts. They will elaborate on the building process of the machine and talk about the future possibilities of this technology in the design process.

4D Printing for Smart Cities – Duo presentation by Hiroya Tanaka & Hitomi Kuboki, Keio University SFC

Hiroya Tanaka

Hiroya Tanaka and Hitomi Kuboki from Keio University SFC will speak at the 4D Printing & Meta Materials Conference, on April 17, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

We believe one of biggest application fields of 4D Printing is “Smart City”. We will introduce our novel design of “transformable car” and “environmental facade”, and explain updates of our original hardware (multi-head big 3d printer with super soft materials) and software (g-code editing).

Additive manufacturing of passive and active optical components – Presented by Andreas Heinrich, Aalen University

Andreas Heinrich

Additive manufacturing of passive and active optical components – Presented by Andreas Heinrich, Aalen University, Center for Optical Technologies, at the 4D Printing  & Meta Materials Conference, on April 17, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

Additive manufacturing enables the realization of complex shaped parts. This also provides a high potential for optical components. Thus elements with virtually any geometry can be realized, which is often difficult with conventional fabrication methods.

FIFDM: 3D Printing with Continuous Fiber Reinforcement – Presented by Jens Schlimbach, The Institute for Composite Materials (IVW)

Program Jens Schlimbach

FIFDM: 3D Printing with Continuous Fiber Reinforcement – Presented by Jens Schlimbach, The Institute for Composite Materials (IVW), at the 3rd edition of 4D Printing & Meta Materials Conference, which takes place on 18 April 2018 at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands.

The presentation shows practical examples of research into the application of 3D printing technologies with continuous fiber reinforcement – the 4th dimension. The FIFDM process is a technology developed at the Institut für Verbundwerkstoffe at Technical University of Kaiserslautern, Germany. Research combines disciplines including design, material science and manufacturing know-how like robotics and 3D printing. The technology opens new possibilities like free placement or load-specific orientation of the fibers overcoming the limitation of in-plane layup. Methods and materials used will be discussed, along with future expectations and implications of smart materials and 3D printing within creative design potential.
