On October 6th, 2015, The 4D Printing & Meta Materials Conference took place at AMOLF in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The conference was successful, attracting over 50 international delegates, and provided great intellectual and social interaction for the participants. The conference provided brilliant insights into the emerging fields of 4D printing and meta materials, brought by many impressive speakers from Stratasys, Recreus, SupraPolix BV, Leiden Institute of Physics, Institute for Complex Molecular Systems (ICMS), Eindhoven University of Technology, Institute of Applied Physics, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Nottingham Trent University, TU Delft.
Dr. Daniel Dikovsky (Israel): 4D Printing Systems by PolyJet Technology
Dr. Daniel Dikovsky presented at the 4D Printing & Meta Materials Conference, Fabrication of 4D Printing Systems by PolyJet Technology. In the recent years the Stratasys PolyJet 3D printing systems were used to fabricate multi-material devices capable of changing their 3D shape in response to an external trigger. A collaboration project between MIT and Stratasys yielded promising results and the term 4D printing, suggesting an additional dimension of form transformation that became possible by this approach. Dr. Daniel Dikovsky will speak about the materials and systems that were used to fabricate these 4D devices and suggest possible developments for the future.
Dr Daniel Dikovsky
Daniel Dikovsky holds a Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering from The Technion – Israel Institute of Technology and a M.Sc. degree in Applied Chemistry from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel. He is a materials scientist and worked as R&D Manager for Stratasys Ltd., a manufacturer of 3D printing equipment and materials for creating physical objects directly from digital data. The Israeli branch of Stratasys (formerly Objet Ltd.) utilizes ink-jet technology for printing three-dimensional polymer objects. Daniel’s research focuses on Multi-Material 3D Printing technology enabling the generation of Digital Materials. These materials are created by simultaneous deposition of multiple material components onto the printing tray.
