xPrint: from design to fabrication for shape changing interfaces by printing solution materials

Abstract

Intensive research regarding shape changing interfaces using novel stimuli-responsive materials have been conducted for the past few years. In this report, we propose to use an integrated system called xPrint platform to seamlessly combine digital design with prototype fabrication for producing shape changing interfaces. This platform with pre-programming transformation interfaces design is applicable for micron-level deposition of a wide range of materials regardless of its viscosity and other physical properties, and it provides features including high-throughput, improved accuracy, and high flexibility.
