There are huge challenges in repairing materials into complex structures.
Here we report an example of light aggregation --
Self-based additive manufacturing
Resilient structure with freedom
Formal architecture.
This model relies on a molecule-designed photoelastic ink with sulfur-based and disulfur-based, in which the former promotes sulfur-
Ene light polymerization in the process of additive manufacturing, the latter in the self-Treatment process.
We found that the competition between the sulfur and the sulfur bond determines the light curing rate and the self curing rate.

Natural biological materials such as animal organs can be independentheal wounds.
Inspired by natural biological materials, scientists have developed
Healing polymers capable of repairing fractures or injuries on a micro scale and restoring mechanical strength on a macro scale.
Treatment ability usually depends on external treatment.
Agent encapsulates substances released on breaks or internal dynamic bonds, such as dynamic bonded and physical bonds independently reformed after breaks
Induced dissociation.
Since these polymers have the ability to repair, they have a wide range of applications such as flexible electronics, energy sensors, soft robots, lithium batteries, water membranes and biomedical devices.
Despite the success in synthesis and application, the existing
Repairing polymers still faces a key bottleneck --

Complex 2D/3D architectures such as soft robots, structural composites, and architecture electronics are required to repair polymers.
However, the demand for the building
The repair of the polymer has not been satisfied enough because of the existing 3D shaping method

These structures can heal the fracture quickly and restore its initial structural integrity and mechanical strength to 100%.
We found that the competition between the sulfur and the sulfur bond determines the light curing rate and the self curing rate.
