    4D Printing: Cube Self-Folding Strand

    In a collaboration between Stratasys’ Education, R&D departments and MIT’s Self-Assembly Lab, a new process is being developed, coined 4D Printing, which demonstrates a radical shift in rapid-prototyping. 4D Printing entails multi-material prints provided by the Connex Technology with the added capability of embedded transformation from one shape to another, directly off the print-bed. This revolutionary technique offers a streamlined path from idea to reality with full functionality built directly into the materials. Imagine robotics-like behavior without the reliance on complex electro-mechanical devices!

    The Self-Assembly Lab, MIT + Stratasys Ltd. + Autodesk Inc.

    Fluid Crystallization

    This installation investigates hierarchical and non-deterministic self-assembly with large numbers of parts in a fluid medium. 350 hollow spheres have been submerged in a 200 gallon glass water-filled tank. Armatures, modeled after carbon atoms, follow intramolecular covalent bonding geometries within atoms. Intermolecular structures are formed as spheres interact with one another in 1, 2, or 3-Dimensional patterns. The highly dynamic self-assembly characteristic of the system offers a glimpse at material phase change between crystalline solid, liquid, and gaseous states. Turbulence in the water introduces stochastic energy into the system, increasing the entropy and allowing structures to self-assemble; thus, transitioning between gas, liquid, and solid phases. Polymorphism may be observed where the same intramolecular structures can solidify in more than one crystalline form, demonstrating the versatile nature of carbon as a building block for life.
    A collaboration between:
    Skylar Tibbits, The Self-Assembly Lab, MIT
    Arthur Olson, The Molecular Graphics Lab, The Scripps Research Institute
    Graham Francis, Marianna Gonzalez, Amir Soltanianzadeh, Monica Zhou, Veronica Emig
    Fluid Crystallization was made possible by support from the Department of Architecture, MIT and the Architectural League of New York.

    Programmable Wood

    Self-Assembly Lab, MIT + Christophe Guberan + Erik Demaine + Autodesk Inc.
    Custom wood grain designed and printed to promote active transformation when subject to moisture. Different patterns of grain direction, thickness and material combinations were explored to promote precise transformation.
