Swedish researchers successful in 4D printing micron-scale soft robots

A team of researchers from Linköping University, Sweden, has developed a set of microactuators for soft micro robotics using a custom-built extrusion-based 3D printer. The actuators contain an electrically-active polymer that changes shape – after being printed – in the presence of an electrical charge, granting them 4D capabilities. While 4D printed soft robots are … Continue reading Swedish researchers successful in 4D printing micron-scale soft robots
