Sustainable 4D Printing: Could 4D Printing Save us from Panel Beaters?!

In a recent work published online in Advanced Engineering Materials (selected as the inside cover), Mahdi Bodaghi and collaborators, from Australia and Canada, introduced metamaterials with zero Poisson’s ratio, shape memory recovery, reusability, and high energy absorption features fabricated by 4D printing, promoting sustainability.

The research artwork on 4D Printed MetaMaterials is featured on the Cover of Advanced Engineering Materials’ September Issue!

Further information on this work could be found in the recently published article entitled “4D Metamaterials with Zero Poisson’s Ratio, Shape Recovery, and Energy Absorption Features” in Advanced Engineering Materials (
