Going Beyond 3D Printing to Add a New Dimension for Additive Manufacturing

By Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory A team of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researchers has demonstrated the 3D printing of shape-shifting structures that can fold or unfold to reshape themselves when exposed to heat or electricity. The micro-architected structures were fabricated from a conductive, environmentally responsive Read More »
