Breakthrough for 4D printing
ETH Professor Kristina Shea and her group from the Engineering, Design and Computing Lab have taken 4D printing a decisive step further. Various media report about this.
The perfect artificial heart
“Zurich Heart” is a multidisciplinary and inter-institutional project. Various media write about Edoardo Mazza`s research, ETH Professor at the Institute for Mechanical Systems, on biomedical textiles for the artificial heart. And, at the Institute for Product Development (pdz) of ETH Zurich Seraina Dual and Marianne Schmid are developing a new sensor technology for the heart pump, reports “Tagesanzeiger”.
Fabrication technology in the fourth dimension
Scientists use the term 4D printing to refer to the simple production of objects that can transform their shape at different times. Researchers at ETH Zurich have now taken this approach one major step further by developing a construction principle that can produce load-bearing and predictable structures.
