"In the twenty-first century we are faced with a basic rule. When someone has their survival strategy based on knowledge of a single technology is doomed to failure. Nevertheless, if this strategy is based on constant updating and lifelong learning so it's easier to augur success." João Greno Brogueira, January 2012
"Kinematics is a system for 4D printing that creates complex, foldable forms composed of articulated modules. The system provides a way to turn any three-dimensional shape into a flexible structure using 3D printing. Kinematics combines computational geometry techniques with rigid body physics and customization. Practically, Kinematics allows us to take large objects and compress them down for 3D printing through simulation. It also enables the production of intricately patterned wearables that conform flexibly to the body."
What 3D modelling software (do you use)? GameDev.net Beside other programs cited here, i love Amapi 3D. I know, this program is old, and have a few minor ui bugs sometimes, but damn, it's the best tool i ever used for modeling.
"Under the direction of Assistant Professor Martin Summers, upperclassmen and graduate students in the UK School of Architecture are reaping the benefits of acquiring 3-D printing skills as part of a UK College of Design studio."

"The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) London presents Engineering the London Underground celebrating the illustrious 150 year history of London's Tube network and the vital role that civil engineers played in delivering one of the world's first and busiest transport networks. The film takes viewers on a journey through the Tube's history including its period of reconstruction following the Second World War, the introduction of the world's first computer controlled underground railway on the Victoria Line, the construction of the Jubilee line and looks to the Tube's future.
The film, produced in collaboration with the London Transport Museum and Transport for London, is narrated by Eddie Butler and features photographs and footage from the Institution of Civil Engineers, British Film Institute, Crossrail, National Media Museum and TfL collections. These images were brought to life by filmmakers Wind & Foster."
