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.

Design of a super-compressible metamaterial by machine learning and additive manufacturing – Presented by Miguel Bessa, Delft University of Technology, at 4D Printing & Meta Materials Conference, on April 17, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

Materials design follows an experimentally-guided trial-and-error process which limits the search for untapped regions of the solution space and introduces difficulties in adapting designs to new circumstances.
