Abstract In the U.S., 30% of adults suffer joint pain, most commonly in the knee, which severely limits mobility and is often attributed to injury of cartilage and underlying bone in the joint. Current treatment methods such as microfracture result in less resilient fibrocartilage with eventual failure; autografting can cause donor site morbidity and poor integration. To overcome drawbacks in treatment, tissue engineers can design cell-instructive biomimetic scaffolds using biocompatible materia...

Abstract Four-dimensional (4D) printing of multi-directionally reinforced preforms has tremendous potential for the development of next generation functional composites by using the capabilities of 3D printing technology, 3D textile preform design, and polymer shape memory behavior. This work demonstrates the shape memory behavior and recovery force of 4D printed circular braided tube preforms and their silicone elastomer matrix composites. The preforms were printed by fused deposition modeling ...

Abstract This paper shows how fused decomposition modeling (FDM) as a three-dimensional (3D) printing technology can engineer adaptive metamaterials with performance-driven functionality built directly into materials. The tactic is based on an understanding of thermo-mechanics of shape memory polymers (SMP) and fabrication concept behind FDM as well as experiments to explore how FDM can program self-foldable metamaterials. Self-folding mechanism is investigated in terms of fabrication parameters...

Compared with traditional stimuli-responsive devices with simple planar or tubular geometries, 3D printed stimuli-responsive devices not only intimately meet the requirement of complicated shapes at macrolevel but also satisfy various conformation changes triggered by external stimuli at the microscopic scale. However, their development is limited by the lack of 3D printing functional materials. This paper demonstrates the 3D printing of photoresponsive shape memory devices through combining fus...

ABSTRACT3D printing is an ever growing industry that provides many benefits to the advanced manufacturing and design industry. However, parts tend to be static, rigid, and lack multi-purpose use. Recently, a new technology has emerged that uses 3D printing to print parts with the ability to change shape over time when exposed to different external stimuli. This new technology has been called 4D printing. Creation of a new material that is capable of changing shape when exposed to different stimu...

Four-dimensional (4D) active shape-changing structures based on shape memory polymers (SMPs) and shape memory nanocomposites (SMNCs) are able to be controlled in both space and time and have attracted increasing attention worldwide. However, conventional processing approaches have restricted the design space of such smart structures. Herein, 4D active shape-changing architectures in custom-defined geometries exhibiting thermally and remotely actuated behaviors are achieved by direct-write printi...

The convergence of additive manufacturing and shape-morphing materials is promising for the advancement of personalized medical devices. The capability to transform 3D objects from one shape to another, right off the print bed, is known as 4D printing. Shape memory thermosets can be tailored to have a range of thermomechanical properties favorable to medical devices, but processing them is a challenge because they are insoluble and do not flow at any temperature. This study presents here a strat...

Abstract Biodegradable polymers are versatile polymeric materials that have a high potential in biomedical applications avoiding subsequent surgeries to remove, for example, an implanted device. In the past decade, significant advances have been achieved with poly(lactide acid) (PLA)-based materials, as they can be equipped with an additional functionality, that is, a shape-memory effect (SME). Shape-memory polymers (SMPs) can switch their shape in a predefined manner upon application of a speci...

Abstract Over the past 30 years, additive manufacturing (AM) has developed rapidly and has demonstrated great potential in biomedical applications. AM is a materials-oriented manufacturing technology, since the solidification mechanism, architecture resolution, post-treatment process, and functional application are based on the materials to be printed. However, 3D printable materials are still quite limited for the fabrication of bioimplants. In this work, 2D/3D AM materials for bioimplants are ...

One of the most promising fields for shape‐memory polymers is the biomedical field. Shape‐memory polymers that can be triggered by various (physiological) conditions such as temperature and moisture have been reported, as well as remotely triggerable shape‐memory polymers that make use of electromagnetic fields, ultrasound, etc. These polymers have shown great promise in in vitro studies as well as in early in vivo studies. Their biocompatibility, and in some cases biodegradability, renders them...

Novel manufacturing techniques such as additive manufacturing (AM, also referred to as 3D printing) will play a critical role in building a sustainable future. AM will reduce waste, energy consumption and production time by eliminating the need to assemble components. It will also enable the mass customization of complex devices. To reach their full potential, additive manufacturing technologies should be able to combine different materials in a single processing step. Although the development o...
