Case Western origami TWISTER mechanism reaches new 3D printing possibilities

The intelligent design of origami models continues to inspire new developments in 3D printing. At Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) in Cleveland, Ohio, a team of researchers led by assistant professor Kiju Lee have created the TWIsted TowEr Robot (TWISTER) mechanism. Based on the twisted tower originally designed by Mihoko Tachibana, the mechanism is inspiring the creation […]
