Self-Assembly Lab

This project explores the future of production and performance of shoes. By printing a precise 2-dimensional pattern, the shape of a shoe can self-transform after being released from the machine. Material of varied layer thickness and property is printed onto stretched textiles then released after printing, allowing the shoe to jump into pre-programmed shapes.

MIT Self-Assembly Lab's Rapid Liquid Printing technology produces furniture in minutes

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed a revolutionary new form of 3D printing that can produce large objects such as chairs in a fraction of the time of regular printers. The Self-Assembly Lab worked with US furniture company Steelcase to develop the process known as Rapid Liquid Printing, which involves extruding material from a computer-controlled nozzle into gel.
