3D Printing Process for Electronic Touch Sensory Devices Developed

July 26, 2017

The multi-material, multiscale and multifunctional process has the potential to open opportunities in applications such as health monitoring, medical devices, orthotics and flexible electronics. It also has far-reaching implications for robotics, as 3D printed stretchable electronic sensory devices could give robots the ability to “feel” their environment, which could be relevant to many robotics processes from manufacturing to remote surgery by robotics (in which the surgeon is in a different location than the patient).

3D-Printing Method Creates Shape-Shifting Objects That Change Permanently

July 26, 2017

A cross-institutional team of researchers has developed a new 3D-printing method that creates objects that can change their original shapes permanently in response to heat.

Researchers from Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), and Xi’an Jiaotong University in China developed the objects by printing layers of shape-memory polymers that each respond differently when exposed to heat.
