4D Printing Is a Thing Now | Technology on GOOD | Future Of 3D Printing | Scoop.it

Just when I had started to wrap my head around the concept of 3D printing, 4D printing has emerged. The fascinating, if overwhelming, TED Talk posted yesterday explaining this next wave of the future—3D printed materials that have the capability of transformation. So, the fourth dimension is time itself. Skylar Tibbits, an architect, designer and computer scientist at MIT, explains it as "programmable materials that build themselves."  The TED website puts it this way: Click headline to watch the  TEDTalk video presentation--

Reality check for DNA nanotechnology: Lowering barriers to DNA-based nanomanufacturing

Reality check for DNA nanotechnology: Lowering barriers to DNA-based nanomanufacturing | Future Of 3D Printing | Scoop.it

Two major barriers to the advancement of DNA nanotechnology beyond the research lab have been knocked down. This emerging technology employs DNA as a programmable building material for self-assembled, nanometer-scale structures. Many practical applications have been envisioned, and researchers recently demonstrated a synthetic membrane channel made from DNA. Until now, however, design processes were hobbled by a lack of structural feedback. Assembly was slow and often of poor quality. Now researchers led by Prof. Hendrik Dietz of the Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) have removed these obstacles.

Will 3D Printing Change the World? | Off Book | PBS

Published on Feb 28, 2013

Much attention has been paid to 3D Printing lately, with new companies developing cheaper and more efficient consumer models that have wowed the tech community. They herald 3D Printing as a revolutionary and disruptive technology, but how will these printers truly affect our society? Beyond an initial novelty, 3D Printing could have a game-changing impact on consumer culture, copyright and patent law, and even the very concept of scarcity on which our economy is based. From at-home repairs to new businesses, from medical to ecological developments, 3D Printing has an undeniably wide range of possibilities which could profoundly change our world.

Architecture is quickly adopting the popular technology of robots. Although it is slightly hard to define what “robot” really means, for architecture, it tends to refer to anything from robot arms to CNC mills to 3D printers.

 

Basically, they are programmable, mechanical, and automated instruments that assist in processes of digital fabrication.

Move over 3D printing, self-assemblng 4D-printed materials are on the way | GizMag.com | Future Of 3D Printing | Scoop.it

Molecular self-assembly, whereby molecules position themselves into defined arrangements, is commonplace in biological systems and nanotechnology. But researchers at MIT are working on so called "4D printing" technology that aims to bring the process up to the macro scale, enabling 3D-printed materials to be programmed to self-assemble into predefined shapes and structures. Just imagine buying some flat-pack furniture, bringing it home and enjoying a coffee whilst you watch it assemble itself.

 

This month, Skylar Tibbits, director of the MIT Self-Assembly lab, was named as one of the six Architectural League winners for collaborative research into programmable materials. The 4D printing process (with the 4th dimension being self-assembly over time) involves the use of materials that change their shape in response to movement or environmental factors, such as the presence of water, air, and/or temperature changes.

 

The technology has the potential to change the face of construction and manufacturing and could make it easier to build in extreme environments (including space or other planets) where construction is dangerous or expensive.

[Bio]nanotechnology & Programmable Matter
Carlos Olguin
Head of [Bio]nanotechnology & Programmable Matter Group
Nanotechnology, the control of matter on an atomic and molecular scale, is an emerging meta-field growing at an accelerated pace.

It is in our interest to identify the implications of nanotechnology and programmable matter for the industries that are currently supported by Autodesk software. It is equally important to early assess the new design spaces enabled by nanotechnology, in particular in regards to life & materials sciences.

Today, the design paradigm behind programmable matter is one that can be gradually applied to concrete projects across a range of domains and metric scales. The cross-pollination across projects will help create a robust scale-free body of knowledge.

The Gartner Hype Cycle graphic has been used since 1995 to highlight the common pattern of overenthusiasm, disillusionment and eventual realism that accompanies each new technology and innovation. The Hype Cycle Special Report is released annually to track 'emerging' technologies along this cycle and provide guidance on when organizations should adopt them for maximum impact and value. 3D Printing has been steadily climbing to the peak of 'Inflated Expectations' over the past few years and now sits on top, poised for the drop into the 'Trough of Disillusionment, or is it.

And why you won't be "printing" your home at home or in a factory any time in the near future.  All of the economic arguments made in this article are even more applicable to the building industry. After all, who really wants to live in a house printed from "toxic" and expensive "3D ink" (especially since building codes don't exist to approve such structures and structural engineers will be very cautious about stamping plans for these building).

Climate Responsive Pavilion Uses Laminated Metal to “Bloom” in the Sun

Climate Responsive Pavilion Uses Laminated Metal to “Bloom” in the Sun | Future Of 3D Printing | Scoop.it

Architecture has long been valued for its static nature and sense of permanence. Increasingly, however, architects are working to make buildings more responsive to users and to the climate.

 

Often this is accomplished through mechanical means, but architect Doris Kim Sung, of LA-based DOSU studio architecture, looks building materials themselves can be responsive, integrating changeability into the structure itself.

The dramatic shell-like form of her recent pavilion, Bloom, suggests, an interest in cutting-edge digital design. While this is also the case, Bloom’s true innovation happens more slowly, through the bending of 14,000 metal tiles according to heat levels generated by the sun. With an aluminum frame supporting the panels, the design is a monocoque structure with a load-bearing skin.

 

For Sung, Bloom is just the beginning of what responsive architecture could be. Harnessing digital technology, advanced fabrication, and new materials point to dynamic new possibilities for the discipline.
