4D Printing ConferenceAbout the 4D Printing & Meta Materials Conference
The 3rd edition of the 4D Printing & Meta Materials Conference will take place on April 18, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands. At the same location, on April 17, 2018, the 3D Printing Materials Conference and the 3D Printing Design & Engineering Conference will be held.

Making and utilizing new materials to improve our life is a defining feature of mankind. We moved on from the stone age, to the bronze age, to the age of silicon and plastic. Now we are at the edge of a new episode, where technological breakthroughs allow us to create, investigate and dream of a total new range of structured forms of matter.

Two fields emerge strongly:

  1. 4D Printing offers a streamlined path from idea to full functionality.
  2. Mechanical metamaterials are structured materials with mechanical properties defined by their structure rather than their composition.

These are highly promising disciplines which develop in a synergistic manner, and which aim at creating entirely new forms of matter, which will lead to applications that have not yet been conceived.

The 4D Printing & Meta Materials Conference will not only cover the academic results but will show how designers and engineers will see future applications and new markets.

Who should attend? Engineers; Designers; Material researchers; Material producers; Academics; anyone who sees potential in 4D Printing and Meta Materials
