What is the status?
We have successfully designed and synthesized photo-responsive materials suitable for additive manufacturing as demonstrated by the reversible actuation of 3D printed complex structures. This has resulted in several scientific publications.
Have you changed course at all?
No, we have not deviated from our initial approach.
What do you expect from the final stage of the project?
We anticipate to keep improving the design of the smart materials in order to fulfill future requirements of these materials in additive manufacturing methods and as mechanically active elements.
