4D PRINTING: A TECHNOLOGY COMING FROM THE FUTURE
WHAT IS 4D PRINTING ?
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 4D AND 3D PRINTING
3D Printing is about repeating a 2D structure, layer by layer in a print path, from the bottom to the top, layer by layer until a 3D volume is created. 4D Printing is referred to 3D printing transforming over time. Thus, a 4th dimension is added: time. So, the big breakthrough about 4D Printing over 3D Printing is its ability to change shape over time.
