Kinematics is a system for 4D printing that creates complex, foldable forms composed of articulated modules. The system provides a way to turn any three-dimensional shape into a flexible structure using 3D printing.

Kinematics combines computational geometry techniques with rigid body physics and customization. On a practical level, the system allows compression of large objects for 3D printing through simulation. It also enables the production of intricately patterned wearables that conform flexibly to the body.
