MAGNELIN4D is a collaborative research project (PRCE) financed by the French National Research Agency and accredited by the EMC2 and EuraMaterials competitiveness clusters.

MAGNELIN4D aims at developing new smart materials with programmable magnetic actuation using additive manufacturing and artificial intelligence. MAGNELIN4D gathers a consortium of 4 academic partners and 1 SEM to perform an applied research balanced between material formulation and functionalisation, polymer processing, numerical modelling and process control using artificial intelligence.
MAGNELIN4D has four defined targets: develop biosourced magnetic filament with high-lignin load and prove its relevance in industrial environment, build an artificial intelligence control environment for 4D printing, and achieve new 3D designs with magnetic actuation.
MAGNELIN4D solutions will feed industrial sectors such as electronics, utilities, materials, energy and healthcare. MAGNELIN4D intends to achieve large impact in AM usages, by involving end-users at first steps of the project and by addressing production up scaling of bio-based magnetic filaments for future industrialisation.
