Inflatable 3D printing substrate


Lecturer and PhD candidate at the College of Art & Design and Built Environment at Nottingham Trent University, Fergal Coulter, has experience in the additive manufacture of tubular, dielectric, elastomer Minimum Energy Structures, cardiac assist devices, auxetic structures, soft robotics and printed electronics.  His newest project, 3D scanning and printing on inflated structures, uses multiple layers of hard silicone – Shore A 73 hardness to be precise – to create seamless, hexachiral structures on an inflated silicone balloon.   Continue reading… “Inflatable 3D printing substrate”
