Active material properties come alive with 3D printing

A novel movement mechanism – a tiny distortion that initiates a large movement. The microstructures determine how the macroscopic properties of the material will react to different environmental stimuli, such as being pressed or stretched.

3-D printing technology has opened new possibilities for Israel Institute of Technology’s Stephan Rudykh to test his models of active material properties.
