This is the continuation of a blog post on how nature is inspiring advancements in engineering. Click here to read Part 1.
A few weeks ago, we highlighted some innovative technologies that are drawing inspiration from nature.
To recap, nature is awesome and when it comes to the microstructures that are naturally occurring, function dictates form. There are various applications that are being developed from the study of these microstructures including manufacturing.
As the additive manufacturing industry demands higher-performance materials, Fortify draws inspiration from nature where bone, nacre, bamboo, and mantis shrimp exhibit some of the high-performance material properties manufacturers seek. We will continue to see more replicas of nature in innovative ways as we continue to learn more about these technologies. Some applications to keep an eye out for.
