Rapid and Shape-Changing Digital Fabrication Using Magnetic Thermoplastic Material

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

In this research, we propose a digital fabrication method that can print reusable objects rapidly using the clay material. Therefore, we developed a magnetic force control device and a magnetic thermoplastic material that deforms dynamically. When the user creates a shape model on the screen, the clay material instantly changes to the shape of the designed model. The user can confirm the shape in a short time, and the material can be reused. In this paper, we describe the design and implementation of magnetic materials and control devices, evaluation, and future work.
