A solution inspired by the spiderweb and based on 3D printing


The spider is no longer the only one that weaves webs with unbreakable resistance: 3D printers do this job too. A team of researchers from Polytechnique Montreal has just demonstrated how a canvas designed with additive manufacturing absorbs up to 96% of the energy of a crash without yielding.   ( Leer más... )
