Recent studies demonstrate novel metamaterials featuring unique properties by combining origami-inspired designs with additive manufacturing. In particular, the use of flexural hinges endows distinct advantages towards miniaturization and fabrication; however, there are limited applications due to the limited loading and fatigue resistance of the hinges. In this study, we focus on testing and characterizing mechanical properties of flexural hinges so that our findings could have immediatedoi:10.1016/j.matdes.2020.108643 fatcat:otikuh662jal3ifpfcilqsgr3e
