BMW and MIT reveal Liquid 3D Printed Pneumatics for self-assembling car interiors

Skylar Tibbits, who coined the term 4D printing back in 2013, and his team at MIT’s Self-Assembly Lab have released the details of an ongoing collaboration with car manufacturer BMW. Named Liquid Printed Pneumatics, the project applies the Self-Assembly Lab’s “Rapid Liquid Printing” technique to the development of next generation car interiors, capable of taking […]

Rapid Liquid Printing creates lamps and bags on demand at Design Miami

The first public demonstration of MIT’s rapid liquid 3D printing process took place at the Design Miami event. Rapid liquid printing (RLP) was developed by furniture and interior design company Steelcase and the Self Assembly lab at MIT, a cross-disciplinary research facility co-directed by Skylar Tibbits and Jared Laucks. Liquid Printed Bag from Self-Assembly Lab, […]

Study simplifies 4D printing process for self-assembling objects

A study published in Science Advances demonstrates a way of creating 3D printed shapes that assemble when exposed to heat. The study proposes a simplified process …

4D Printing: Selbstformende Objekte – Update: programmierbares Carbon & Holz

28.02.2013 – Der Designer, Architekt und Informatiker Skylar Tibbits, forscht in Zusammenarbeit mit Autodesk, Stratasys´ Research Abteilung und dem MIT, an selbstformenden Technologien. Die ersten Ergebnisse zeigte er nun auf der TED Conference 2013. Unter dem Namen 4D-Printing, versteht Tibbits “programmierte” Materialien, die selbstständig eine neue Form annehmen können (“self-assembly technology”). Mithilfe eines Objet Connex […]
