3D printed active materials for robots

Posted on Updated on

3D printed active materials for robots, inspiration from invertebrates.

According to Dr. Ed Habtour, ARL researcher who specializes in nonlinear structural dynamics and lead author Ghazaleh Haghiashtiani, “Current military robots have two major limitations that restrict them from mimicking the locomotion of biological organisms. Unlike current 3-D printed DEAs, the new fabrication method does not require post-processing steps, such as assembly, drying or annealing. With the new 3-D printing method, the Solider can take advantage of the unique actuation properties of soft DEAs at the fundamental materials level with microscale resolution and complexity, with minimal prior expertise.”

The future of 3D printing and manufacturing

Posted on Updated on

BigRep 3D Printer Reviews.
We always skeptical about the future of 3D printing and manufacturing. Nowadays technology is with the combination of Artificial Intelligence, Nano, Virtual Reality and 3D Printers.

3D printers are speeding up the manufacturing process. We are using 3D, 4D, and 5D printing. We already know parts can be printed, retrieved and installed by a robot.

3D-printed concrete structure

Posted on Updated on

According to Asst Prof Pham from NTU’s School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, “We envisioned a team of robots which can be transported to a work site, print large pieces of concrete structures and then move on to the next project once the parts have been printed.
This research builds on the knowledge we have acquired from developing a robot to autonomously assemble. But this latest project is more complex in terms of planning, execution, and on a much larger scale.”
