We propose a new design of complex self-evolving structures that vary over time due to environmental interaction. In conventional 3D printing systems, materials are meant to be stable rather than active and fabricated models are designed and printed as static objects. Here, we introduce a novel approach for simulating and fabricating self-evolving(More)
Rapid advances in digital fabrication technologies and new materials development allow for direct control and programmability of physical material transformations. By utilizing multimaterial 3D printing technologies and anisotropic material compositions, we can physically program hygroscopic materials such as wood to precisely sense and self-transform based(More)
In this thesis I propose a selfassembly procedure called the Morphocell(M-Cell) assembly. This procedure is based on an assembly unit called the M-Cell. The M-Cell is comprised out of two components, the M-Block and the M-Clay (in which the M-Block is embedded). During the assembly procedure the M-Clay acts as the environment of the assembly for the(More)
