4D Printing for Smart Manufacturing and Supply Network

With #3dprinting (also known as “Additive Manufacturing”) gathering mainstream momentum with #smartmanufacturing, researchers are quietly moving on to  #4dprinting – an extension of 3D printing which uses programmable material technologies that enable 3D-printed parts to transform their shape in response to external stimuli such as pressure, temperature and humidity.

 

Read on – yet another transformative technology brewing for #personalization in manufacturing and #smartsupplynetwork.
