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.

About Vimukthi Gunatilleke

I’m currently in my 3rd year as a bachelor student doing my final bachelor project with a sports company called Smartgoals. The project involves creating a interactive training vest with new illumination techniques and materials. My interests lie in product design with a focus on sports and wearable technologies.


What drives you?

The plethora of opportunities within the world of making which make it an exciting place for design.

Why should the delegate attend your presentation?

Anyone with an interest in the future of 3D printing and new production techniques would find our presentation interesting.

What emerging technologies/trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?

Rapid liquid printing, embedded printing, multi material printing

What kind of impact do you expect them to have?

Mass production alongside ultra personalization

What are the barriers that might stand in the way?

Trying to make a bespoke making technique like 3D printing more a mass production technique
