MIT Researchers inspired by “kirigami” to 3D print better bandages - Researchers at MIT have perforated elastomer film with “kirigami” slits using 3D printed molds to improve the adhesiveness of the film. Kirigami is a variation of origami that involves folding and cutting paper to produce patterns or structures, such as snowflakes. Ruike Zhao, a postdoctoral associate at MIT’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, says that the […]   Source: The 3d printers source The post MIT Researchers ...
