Antoine LE DUIGOU will be speaking at the conference 4D Printing & Meta Materials Conference , in which he contributed to the construction of the Polymer and Composites section.
9 March 2021, Online, 14:00 – 18:00 CET, 4D printing of natural fibre composites : Toward new shape changing structures.
About The conference: At the edge of new forms of matter
We are at the edge of a new episode, where technological breakthroughs allow us to create, investigate and dream of a total new range of structured forms of matter. Two fields emerge strongly:
1- 4D Printing offers a streamlined path from idea to full functionality.
2- Mechanical meta materials are structured materials with mechanical properties defined by their structure rather than their composition.
Why is this relevant?
These fields offer not only tremendous opportunities for engineers but also for designers as many new applications will arise. Smart materials will solve design/engineering problems, which often arise from limitations of current materials. Applications can range from new materials for shoes and wearables, to applications in robotics and new type of sensors. The 4D Printing & Meta Materials Conference will not only cover the academic results but will show how designers and engineers will see future applications and new markets. ….READ MORE ABOUT THE CONFERENCE…
