MIT’s tangible media group‘s ‘aeroMorph’ works with a software tool that can generate bending mechanisms for a specific geometries, simulating its transformation, and exporting the compound geometry as digital fabrication files. the group has a range of fabrication methods from manual sealing, to heat pressing with custom stencils, and a custom heat-sealing head that can be mounted on usual 3-axis CNC machines to precisely fabricate the designed transforming material.
