  • 4D printing technology has attracted people's attention since it came up in 2013. 4D printing is a kind of new manufacturing technology which is based on 3D printing and smart materials. In other word, 4D printing is evolved from 3D printing and aimed at the improvement of structure, property and function. 4D printing predicts that the self-assembly, multifunction and self-healing can be achieved. This paper reviews the whole research progress of 4D printing in time sequence, and summarizes the achievements of this technology in material science, manufacturing industry, bioengineering and medical science. In addition, the application perspectives in this field are also discussed.
