Printed Origami Structures (Adv. Mater. 20/2010)
Bok Y. Ahn, Jennifer Lewis, and co-workers report on p. 2251 a new method for creating complex 3D structures that combines direct-write assembly with a wet-folding origami technique. Planar lattices composed of a titanium hydride ink are printed, and then folded, rolled, or molded into the desired shape. These 3D objects are then transformed into metallic or ceramic structures by thermal annealing.
