Shape-shifting robots built from 'smarticles'

Shape-shifting robots built from 'smarticles'

Building conventional robots typically requires carefully combining components like motors, batteries, actuators, body segments, legs and wheels. Now, researchers have taken a new approach, building a robot entirely from smaller robots known as "smarticles" to unlock the principles of a potentially new locomotion technique.

An optimal concrete bridge

An optimal concrete bridge

Researchers have made a bridge at lab scale with the smallest possible amount of concrete. This project was 3D printed in collaboration with Vertico, a dutch firm that made a mobile 3D printer. The shape of the bridge was optimized and combined with an optimal trajectory of the steel cable at the bottom of the bridge to minimize stress peaks.

3D printing is making headway in composite manufacturing

3D printing is making headway in composite manufacturing

Within the field of 3D printing, there is increasing emphasis on functionality as the industry shifts away from the stereotype of rapid prototyping, and materials are not exempt from such scrutiny. For instance metals such as titanium with excellent tensile strength and low density are ideal for lightweighting applications, and as such demand for these materials is continually increasing. However, for certain applications, metals are not sufficiently lightweight enough, which is where composites come into play. The latest report from IDTechEx, "3D Printing Composites 2020-2030: Technology and Market Analysis", authored by Dr Bryony Core and Dr Richard Collins examines the key trends and innovations in this emerging technology.
