Researchers come together to review both 3D and 4D printing, as well as exploring its ongoing potential in ‘ Recent 3D and 4D intelligent printing technologies: a comparative review and future perspective .’
While both technologies offer great opportunity for industrial users to make and maintain functional parts and prototypes, 3D and 4D printing are a source of fascination around the world due to the ability to innovate at will, cutting out the middleman, and making new objects with new materials that may not have been possible previously. The brief overview of relevant 3D printing methods In the 4D realm, we see the progress being made from materials that may be less flexible to those that are able to shift with their environment—and according to the user’s needs. The authors not only delve further into fundamentals and development (especially in the evolution from 3D to 4D) but also perform […]
