In this project, our aim is to develop 3D multi-functional structures made out of spatially changing nano-composites using 3D printing technologies by optimizing the structures design, developing path planning algorithms and 3D printing of these structures directly from their optimum designs. Therefore, we will
i) develop computer-aided algorithms to model multi-functional structures from base polymer and its nano-composites,
ii) develop tool-path planning algorithms for 3D printing of the designs,
iii) develop new 3D printing technologies for manufacturing of these multifunctional structures.
