3D Printing of Kirigami Conductors

Kirigami is utilized in the manufacturing industry to improve durability, versatility, and elongation. These kirigami structures are 3D printed with an Ender Pro printer and a conductive filament. The Japanese art form “kirigami” means “cut” and “paper,” which in this application turns two dimensions into three-dimensional deformation. The objective of this research is to study the relation between tensile properties and geometry of the kirigami conductors. Following thorough quantitative data from various tensile tests, the research team determines the evolution of conductivity during the deformation process.
