Direct Voxel Writing based on Microfluidics Multi-Material 4D Printing – VOXWRITE

Submission summary

Additive manufacturing is a key pillar of the industry 4.0. In particular, this technology enables the creation of customized solutions to meet users' needs. More recently, a complementary approach consists of designing and producing systems that can be transformed, deployed, or adapted according to their surrounding environment. 4D printing - that combines additive manufacturing with stimuli-responsive materials - is relevant for this type of systems, as it allows objects to evolve in terms of shape, functionality, and properties. The VOXWRITE project focuses on a novel multi-material 4D printing process for realizing active objects/structures with high resolution and flexibility in terms of material choice. It uses microfluidic channels to produce and deposit microdroplets of different natures (active and inert, or even loaded with microparticles). The VOXWRITE objective is to realize a prototype machine integrating an adapted microfluidic platform allowing to manufacture two demonstrators for the biomedical sector.
