Today, electronic sensors, digital controllers and motors as actuators are required for the function of many technical systems that react to stimuli. 4D structures can replace these construction principles with reduced complexity. In hybrid manufacturing processes the advantages of textile manufacturing processes can be combined with the advantages of generative manufacturing processes. What is new is the purposeful change in shape of the hybrid material over time as a result of the interaction of a prestressed, anisotropic textile carrier structure and printed heterogeneous beam structures as reinforcement. The hybrid material 4D textile is validated on four application examples (gripper, glove, orthosis, sportswear).
