4D Printing for Smart Cities – Presented by Hiroya Tanaka, Keio University SFC, 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).
