Self-forming structures made with 3D printing at Nervous System

The Nervous System studio was founded in 2007. Since then their exploration of generative design, often drawing on 3D printing technology, has made the work of founders Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg a regular appearance on this site. Projects from the Somerville, Massachusetts studio include the 4D printing Kinematics system and working with New Balance […]

Telescoping 3D printed robots developed to help in search & rescue

3D printing has been used to help create a program for exploring the possibilities of objects that can be extended and compacted at will. As a deployable feature that can be added to a variety of shapes the technique has great potential across mechanical and civil engineering to make structures and innovative machines. In robotics, […]
