Scientists 3D print new impact-resistant cuttlefish-inspired biomimetic structures

2 weeks ago 9
Researchers from the Chinese Zhejiang University have developed a set of novel biomimetic cell-like structures with unique energy absorption capabilities.  Inspired by the rigid yet flexible skeleton of the cuttlefish, the scientists’ 3D printed models proved ultra-resistant to compression, and capable of withstanding up to 20,000 times their own weight in deformation. In future, the […]
