Programming Behavior Into Materials

A Difference In Making
Imagine products that only adopt their final shape when exposed to sunlight or water, or compact structures that deploy after a predetermined amount of time. By combining several matters or depositing them into existing substrates, 3D Printing can produce new material constructions with an embedded “programmed” behavior, which is triggered under the right circumstances. This is the astonishing territory of metamaterials: artificial materials engineered to have properties that have not yet been found in nature.
