Technology for 3D printing has been around for approximately 30 years. However, another technology is emerging as the additive manufacturing sector continues to identify new applications, new materials, and new 3D printers. 4D printing is a technology that was invented in the near future. How can we make 3D printing have a fourth dimension? Even though we have before explained to you how this technology alters the shape of materials, in this blog post we will jointly explore the capabilities and prospective uses of 4D Printing technology. A 3D-printed object can change into a different structure through the process of 4D printing under the impact of external energy input such as temperature, light, or other environmental stimuli. The MIT Self-assembly Lab's project includes this technology. In order to reimagine construction, manufacturing, product assembly, and performance, this project aims to combine technology and design to create self-assembly and programmable material technologies.
