MIT researchers have revolutionized the manufacturing of architected materials through a groundbreaking technique using an ancient Japanese art form. By combining kirigami, the practice of folding and cutting paper, with metal or other materials, they have created custom-shaped structures called plate lattices, which are stronger and stiffer than traditional beam lattices. This innovative technique overcomes the limitations of common manufacturing methods like 3D printing. To fabricate these plate lattices, the researchers modified a traditional origami crease pattern. They flattened the sharp points of the corrugated structure, making it easier to attach top and bottom plates. This adaptation enables them to…
